Tomorrow is Elise’s last exam – Business Studies – so today has been delegated a study day.
Elise started studying in her room then moved to the dining room. There was one large sheet of cardboard with writing all over it taped to the glass doors when I went outside to spin.
There were three large sheets of cardboard with writing all over it taped to the glass doors when I came inside for lunch.
I thought that by making myself scarce it would give her the chance to study in peace. I also had the thought I might actually mange to get some spinning done.
I did…..with a little help.
I did mange to get some more pretty but practical things made for Elise the other week – just forgot to blog them. A rag bag. I figure if she ends up getting a cat like she would like there will always be little messes to clean up.
I also bought a bath towel, cut it into four hand towels and put a towel topper on each. I have had the bit of vintage kitten fabric for ages – an op shop bargain. I ended up using all I had bought – which was a couple of meters – on the hand towels and the rag bag. What what was left of the towel I have made four dish cloths which I am crocheting around to help the edges hold together.
A confession here. I use face washers to wash my dishes with. For ages I experimented with all sorts of dishcloths…..from bought cloths to hand knitted or crocheted. In desperation one day I grabbed a face washer and loved it. It just the right size, the terry towelling cleans well and semi dries the benches after I have wiped them down and they wash and dry really easily. I have face washers for the kitchen as well as the ones in the kids bathroom each marked with a piece of fabric so I know what gets used for what purpose.
PS There are now four sheets of paper taped to the glass doors and Elise has retired to the table to write on more bits of paper. I’m so glad that tomorrow is the end of all this study…….for a while anyway.
