Slowpoke Sunday - Puttering

 In the hoop this week, Dear Jane still in progress.  I have it ready for evening TV viewing with the family.  Hop over to Kathy's blog to see what other hand work people have pulled out this week. 
 This morning I was making a few fabric covered folders for school.  I made a set last year for "in" folders, but now I need some for "out".  With two down and two to go, I ran out of spray adhesive!  Not something I use very often, but it has come in very handy from time to time.  I had promised to take the girls to see a movie while the boys were at D&D, so we were going to pop into Joann's while we were out.  They had entirely torn apart the store for a remodel!  The fabric was were the yarn used to be, the cutting counter had switched with the patterns an everyone was wandering around looking dazed and confused.  I eventually asked someone who worked there where the glue was, but she didn't know either.   Oh my.  I hope they get it all put back together soon.  Obviously we didn't stay to shop but grabbed the glue and escaped. 
Back from the movie now, Anna has settled in to do a sewing project for school.  Her science teacher asked if she could make a set of curtains from some tie dye panels that her students make each year.  She did have me trim them to a consistent size, but the rest is all up to her.  She is quite excited to be asked to do such an important job and is earning volunteer hours at the same time.
I hope you are all enjoying some down time this Sunday.  It is always nice to take a deep cleansing breath before jumping back into a new week.

Love your fabric folders, those will definitely be easy to find and fun to look at.

It is always a bit weird when stores change their layouts!

Can you please explain how volunteer hours work? We didn't have such a thing when my DD was at school.
