Cross-Stitching & Blacksmithing

When it came time to go to the forging class today I found out the teacher can only do one on one, so my boyfriend took the class and I didn't get to do it. Luckily I took my cross-stitch box, 2 books on cross-stitch from the library and a murder mystery that revolves around knitting.

The class took all day, so I did a cross-stitch marathon. I've never done cross-stitching that much in one day. It always pays to take a craft with you. I started a new sampler with the alphabet and farm animals and flowers. It didn't include a piggy so I made one up as I went along.

You can read about the day from my boyfriend's point of view here: Tool Time and I'll be downloading photos of the day's events tomorrow or Monday.

My boyfriend is new to blogging and will be really tickled if you follow his archery blog.

Isn't it fun to get a long period of time to do something? I always take along something to do almost everywhere I go... But I remember what it is like to work on one project or activity for a long period of time.

Most women don't have the luxury of working on one thing for a long time. Too many interrupts from kids, jobs, phones, and visitors.
