This afternoon as some of the ladies were arriving, Michael and I were in a side apartment putting the kits together. Whew...why are we always getting it done just under the wire. I left the hotel after that to come home and work on the piece for Stitcher's Retreat. Another brilliant idea we had in a weak moment. I'm tired of giving the same old thing in the goodie bags and while the bag itself changes, we tend to put many of the same things in the bag. I know we can all use needles, etc., but I want something new and different. Well, I think we can say we have something different....or at least I hope we will. Thank God I work well under pressure but it would be really helpful if I'd stop thinking of "one more thing." So with the weekend looming in 7 days I'm working 24/7 in hopes of getting this done. Keep your fingers crossed. Things are really coming together. Michael has taken his finals in all but 3 classes, and one of those will be done next week. Then we are down to Science and Writing. I can't say I'll be sorry for the break and I know Michael will be thrilled. He thought we would be done this month and was very disappointed when I informed him we would be going to school until May 31. He was not thrilled, but he's done well and has an average right now of 89.41% as his grade. I don't see any reason why we won't end up with that or hopefully 90% after taking the last of the finals....I'm hopeful and a little sorry I won't be doing it again next year. I'm relearning all the "stuff" I should have remembered from my days in school...thanks to a lot of web sites. I can only imagine what brilliance I would display if I had access to the information children today have. I'm telling you we'd all be Rhodes Scholars. Anyway, his mother always said it was for only one year and apparently she's holding to that as she has informed me he's going back to public school now that he's caught up. I guess next winter I'll finally have to clean the house as I will have no other excuse why I don't have enough time. I might just take an online class just for the hell of it. Well, I've got to get back to stitching....time is ticking away and I'm not ready for next weekend. Talk to you later. Hope you are getting your stitching done. Thanks to everyone who participated.
