First Day

Yesterday, the little man started junior kindergarten. Apparently it went very well, according to what we’ve been able to pry out of him. Goodness, it is weird to think that he has a life of his own now!

Happy (?) to be finally heading off to school.

How did I pass the quiet time? Snoozing on the sofa, of course! No, actually I ran a couple of errands, folded some laundry, and I did a couple of stitches on CherryWood Design Studio’s Pumpkins on Parade Ribbons.

I’m using Enchanting Lair’s Silvery Silk 28ct Lugana, I believe. (It was from an ornament sized grab bag, so I’m not 100% sure what it is.) The threads are from Weeks Dye Works and Crescent Colours. I am substituting DMC for two of the colours (the brown and a yellow I haven’t stitched with yet) since I didn’t have the WDW and GAST needed.

So, once school gets into full swing next week, I’m going to have several hours to myself every afternoon. Bliss!
