Five on Friday

Monday:
Another week started. At last this week had started with bright sunshine. The days had started getting longer. Now when I wake up in the morning I can see the soft pink sunlight of the morning. Anyway, today again my son had a minimum day in school. I had my conference with his teacher. We discussed  about the concerns regarding about his progress. His teacher told me that he had been making a good progress, and he is already in his grade level, and could exceed that before the end of the school year. That was very nice to know that. 
Since last week I have become very busy with a huge project. Actually in June I am going to meet with my high school friends. I have planned to give all of them some handmade purses. We are 24 friends in our group. So, I need to sew 24 purses.

Today morning I noticed tulip buds in my front yard



Tuesday:  
My purse making project is going on in full sewing. I’ve already finished six bags. Hopefully I’ll finish them fast. However, there is one problem. As I’m using all old fabrics, and other throwaway things, I’m running out all those things. So, all the bags may not be same, as I  need to change in design to use different other things. Hope my friends won’t mind. Anyway, I was happily sewing in the afternoon, suddenly the fabric got stuck in the machine. I couldn’t take snag it out. I was in the dilemma whether I cut the fabric out or not. At that time one purse was almost at the stage of finish. So, I was hesitating to cut the fabric. Lastly, I decided to cut. However, I couldn’t cut it, as it was a thick jean fabric. I tried to find out solution from the machine manual, but that didn’t help much. Then I took the help of Youtube. However, I couldn’t find any feasible solution. Then I again, went through the manual. Anyway, after many trial and error, I could take the needle, and the pressure foot. It took me more than one hour to fix it. At last I could take out my almost finished purse.

Wednesday: 
Today was a real busy day. I did all the household chores. I had swimming class today. Since I started swimming class, I had been struggling with side kick. 
I couldn’t  flip my body. Actually I was scared to do that. I always scare of drowning. Anyway, lastly, my coach suggested me using a small noodle, not the big one. After using that at least  I could  flip myself.

Pansies are blooming in my backyard



Thursday: 
Today was a warm sunny day. I went to a coffee with some of  friends. It was a nice time. We went Paris Baguette. All the pastries were very delicious there. We spent a quality time together and then went back to our daily routine. Today I could make another purse before I went to pick my son from school. 


Friday: 
Again it was another busy Friday. I overworked today. Apart from cooking, cleaning, and all the household chores, I went to Costco. Friday late morning is not at all a good time in Costco. It was  very crowded. Anyway, my son and I had a big argument in the morning. He was very sad, as well as angry. I, neither could make him understand anything, nor I could divert his mind. Do you know why he was sad. He was sad because, he is the youngest in the class.

That tulip bud has turned into a bright pink blossom

You always have such a busy week. I sure your friends will love the purses. I hate when I have trouble with my sewing machine.

Both my boys were always the youngest in their classes all through school. Sounds like you had a busy and productive week. 24 is a lot -- but your purses are lovely. I'm sure your friends will love them, especially that they are handmade.

I understand your son's problem. I was the youngest in my class too and it is sometimes very hard to deal with. Tell him that his age is not important. Just make sure you do your best in class and all will be well.

JoJo said...

Awwww your poor son. :( I was one of the youngest in my class too but I liked it. Love your purse project too. I assume you have the machine fixed and you are working again!

Your purses are so cute, I'm sure your friends will love them. Glad you fixed the one that got stuck. You are a busy lady.

Carly Foster said...

Your purses look lovely, I love the sentiment and the fact that you're using recycled materials. I've had the same issue many times with the fabric becoming stuck. I have found that it's usually to do with using an incorrect size or sharpness of needle for the particular fabric I'm sewing - the needle doesn't penetrate properly and catches the fabric, pushing it into the bobbin casing where it gets stuck. A good wiggle and a tug whilst spinning the needle wheel gently usually does the trick!

karen said...

your spring time photos are beautiful and wonderful! I'm looking at massive amounts of snow, so your colors and flowers are welcoming signs of spring :)

Chris Lally said...

Lucky friends - handmade purses! And you took the time to share those beautiful photographs. Thank you.
I was the youngest in my class - loved it. My daughter was the youngest in her class - hated it!

Your pansies are cheerful; I planted some like them a few days ago. My mother always grew them and called them Johnny Jump Ups, which is what I call them.
