Quick, short update post

Nothing much to say here, as I have been at school all day today and on a school trip all day yesterday (it's one of those weeks) - I did do some sewing, of sorts, this afternoon, though it mostly involved threading needles for a bunch of 8 and 9 year olds and showing them how to attach buttons.

It was interesting, in a way - those of us who sew a lot take things for granted I think - for instance, the ability to bring the needle up through the fabric from underneath and get it in the general vicinity of the hole in the button you are sewing on.

Anyway, I wanted to thank everyone who commented on my post on productivity - some great comments there - I have responded to some of you - apologies if I didn't/don't get back to you personally - there were a couple of no-reply comments for one thing, for another I am just crazy busy at the moment...

If you have left a emailed my about the birthday ATC swap and I haven't got back to you, don't panic - I will!

You are right on about taking things like sewing for granted. It is a bit difficult to teach someone else to do things we do so automatically.

Have a good day tomorrow!

I was just reading your 'what's for dinner'. What on earth are puttanesca tomatoes?

Good for you, it's nice to know that someone is out there teaching children all those seems to have ceased to matter over the past couple of decades.

Just two days ago I learned how to sew on a button with my sewing machine, now that's a nice feature!
