A few life-lessons from the past week...
1. A boy and his comforter are not soon parted. I think Adam's had this one for about 10 years - besides not being the prettiest of things to begin with (masculine, practical, and inexpensive would probably be the best descriptors) it had also seen a fair amount of abuse and had some off-colored spots that wouldn't wash out.
You'll notice, though, that I'm able to refer to it in the past tense. Our compromise was a new bedspread of my choosing (he gave some input, and I bravely didn't even suggest the deep purple one) if we could get jersey sheets to go with it. And everyone's happy with the end result. :)
2. If you pray for community, your church may offer a quilting workshop the next Saturday. I will probably be the youngest person there, which is perfectly fine with me - and if I'm not, then I've already got something in common with her (mutual enjoyment of fiber-craft and appreciation for the wisdom of our elders).
3. When it's late at night and your yarn-winding partner is asleep, an upside down stool will do to hold your yarn, in a pinch (I do own a swift, and a ball winder - but they're packed... somewhere).
4. Those trays I made awhile ago out of duct and Washi tape work really well to muffle the sound of dice rolling, when we want to play a round of Yahtzee while Brooklyn naps.
5. Speaking of which, I am now filled with a desire to stick Washi tape on every blank surface that I encounter. It may be some sort of addiction...
What about you? Have you learned anything new this week?
