Our French teacher, Adam, was due to meet with us this morning at our apartment for a lesson...but he's been battling a chest cold and he called to cancel...it made me feel like a kid who wakes up and finds out it's a "Snow Day"...no school!!!
Of course I should be using this time to study my French.
I decided it was time to officially catalogue my collection of Sandra Cozzolino cross stitch designs that are out of print. I've been collecting her older designs through Ebay. Last week...out of the blue...a gal who beat me on a bid contacted me to see if I was interested in sharing or selling some of my collection. I'm totally into sharing! As a result we are both a little closer to having our collections complete. I have finished two ornaments since November...not exactly an impressive rate of progress...but progress none the less.
I also basted the center circles on a set of dresden plates...a UFO I brought from Alaska. I'd like to get those centers appliquéd before heading back in May. I should determine a layout design too...maybe I will do an internet search and get some ideas!
I finally got back to my Bucilla stocking videos...I was just stuck on one that was too long...so I made it two parts...problem solved. Here's Part 1 of #13.
I am afraid I have caught Adam's cold...but I'm taking lots of vitamin C. I'm sure this bonus day of relaxing will help me fight it off.
Does it count as French homework if I watch, "Pirates of the Caribbean," in French with French subtitles? I have every line of the movie down in English so I think it does...
We will be meeting with Taco, our other French teacher tomorrow. He introduced a whole new pronoun placement on Friday...it really knocked our socks off. But we have noticed this pattern and now some phrases are making more sense...but only if spoken very slowly!
