Yes there certainly is.  I've separated out what will go to Queen Bee's and what will stay with me.

did another "page" in the stitch dictionary.  Found out that 2 is just a needle position change.  There was no reason to make ten pages of them.  Now 3 is a zig zag and I might want to use them there.  But I'm not reorganizing the pages again.  I'll just cut them apart and do a leather & hole binding.

Did 3 and 4 today so 5 through 9 left and that project can be bound.

I used the new sewing machine yesterday for the first time.  It was a dream.  It is so quiet compared to the kenmore and it doesn't bounce. 

Pat showed me something called a zipper tab for the bag.  It gives the zipper a nice finished appearance on each end and I think might make it sturdier than just putting in the zipper.  I'm thinking topstitching the zipper after it is put in may also make it sturdier.  I'm very into sturdy as you can tell.

I've got to say snaps are a pain in the backside.  But the little tool i bought does help keep them in place which should save some time. 

Pat was nice enough to give me her class instructions on the little bag we made to help me remember what we did.

Well I started out the morning by doing stitch pattern 5 in my stitch dictionary.  So I'm at the half way point.  I may not make the one month deadline that was suggested but I'm getting there.

I darned my first sock.  Now I'm wearing it and working on the second sock.  Why darn socks when it is just as cheap to buy them?  It's all Ollie's fault (discount store).  A couple of years ago they had a sale on socks and I bought a couple of pair.  They were the best socks ever!  So now I am trying to figure out how to make socks nice and cushy on the bottoms and still fit inside my shoes like they are.  So far so good.  Not pretty but they feel good and they fit inside the shoe.

Some socks are well worth darning.

When I made my tote I made the bottom wrong.  I hope to fix that this morning.  Then go rescue my fmq'ing foot from the car.
