Our winter hasn’t been just awful. But Spring is definitely on the way. I saw a cardinal in my backyard yesterday. I don’t ever remember seeing one at this house although I frequently had one visit in my city house. The bright red of its feathers was a welcome spot of color on an overcast day. In addition, my big forsythia bush has started blooming. That’s definitely a sign of spring. I must remember to look at my daffodils and see if they’re up and blooming yet.
I taught a knitting class last night. The store booked two classes at the same time. One was a sewing class and then my knitting class. Sewing classes have priority in the classroom so the mother of my student moved a table and some chairs out on the selling floor for us. The project was a knitted dishcloth. What a boring pattern Joann’s picked for this project! While my student worked on hers — and got about an inch knitted — I finished up the class sample. That should get the class coordinator off my back for a bit. I plan to take the scarf which is the next sample I must do with me to work on during the slack times at the election on Tuesday.
When I took the completed sample into the classroom, one of the sewing students asked if I was an OASIS volunteer at Meramec Heights. She’s a second grade teacher at that school. I agreed that I had volunteered there but had given it up because of health issues. It was nice to be remembered, especially by a teacher I hadn’t worked with.
