Live Mocha

I added three more resources on the left under Nutmeg's Curriculum. Live Mocha is a free, internet language learning program. My mother has been using it to learn Spanish. Nutmeg is really enjoying the German exercises. Sometimes we are asked to review oral or written submissions from members learning English.

Hello there!

I have had sick girls for THREE WEEKS! It was pretty bad. Everyone seems to be doing well at the moment; DH and I actually went away alone for Memorial Weekend. I have not gotten much schooling or stitching done lately. I re-started school on Tuesday, and things are going well. Things will be even better when the reorganization of the school room is complete. It started this morning when a stack of books slid into my coffee cup which spilled everywhere. If you cannot find a safe spot for your coffee cup, it is time to tidy up!
Stitching has taken a back seat to gardening. Now that the plants are for the most part in the ground and happy, I have been getting the stitching back out.

You would think the above design was a finish, wouldn't you? Well, I need to stitch a B after Michele and also stitch the antlers on that deer. This is who I am. I get right up to the end, and well......
My mom gave me Earth Sampler for my birthday. I am not sure why the rabbit is supposed to be Pomegranate. My pomegranate is distinctly pink.
I will probably wish that I had done all four squares of Jeanne d' Arc. I just don't know that I can stitch that much brown. I could always do the other squares and have them framed separately, I guess.
