When Happy Wonderer and I met up to walk last week after our summers of travel in far away places, she presented me with a little gift. Something she found on one of her forays into Thrift Store Land.
The lady knows what I like: turquoise. And she knows I have never met a dish or vase I didn't like! This azure treasure was Made In Italy. I love it! Thanks, HW!
The embossed label in the front says Roma 1 Litro.
My update on Doing Not Thinking Challenge: I finished #1, 4, and 6 on my list from last week. I repaired the bath towel hem, and it took me all of five minutes. I hung the curtains in the bedroom. I remember now why I didn't hang them in there last year. They are too short for the largest window, but The Professor said he could lower the curtain rod. I resewed the elastic in the doll clothes. #2, putting the lining in the sheer skirt, is not done, but the material is laid out, ready for the pattern to be pinned. #7: I started reading Real Food this afternoon. Iam not going to add any more items to the list until I finish these.
So this week I hope to sew the wool bag for myself, buy or sew curtains for the guest room, put the lining in the sheer blue skirt and keep reading. This week is also the start of my school year. I had a day of inservice and will have a staff meeting tomorrow. However, I found out I do not actually begin teaching until the middle of September, due to my 'job description' as Title I teacher for First Grade (yes a change from last year), which doesn't begin until after the classroom teachers assess and identify the Title I students in their classrooms. I just got two more weeks of summer vacation!
