As I write this at 8 o'clock in the morning, I should have been sitting in a classroom with my husband, taking a czech examination in order to get a permanent residency permit. But I'm not. As is often the way here in Czech, life throws up little surprises, some good, some bad. On Monday we went across to the Ministry of the Interior offices in Breclav to get our free voucher for the exam, but that office had closed in February, and we had to drive 50 kms to the nearest office Brno. After waiting for around 30 minutes in 30 degree + temperatures, we were told by a puzzled man there, that as EU citizens, we didn't have to take the test! We had both checked the requirements on the internet, as had our teacher, and the examiner! So we filled our forms in and just have to wait for the residency permit to arrive in the post! Simples!
So instead of sitting in a hot classroom, I have been sitting in a hot sewing room, making my bee blocks for Katy. She wanted a feather
And some flying geese. All was going well until the final cut to trim off the excess seam allowance, and look what I did
Top right, I managed to cut through the fabric too! So that'll have to come off now. All I can say is I'm hot and mithered!
I have also been working on a little something for my Stitch Tease block in July. A little hand sewing in the shade!
All those french knots make it very slow progress! This could be ready for July next year!
There's lots of other stuff hanging around not getting finished, maybe for another post. And it doesn't look like I'm going to have many finishes for this quarters FAL, but hey ho!
Have a good Wednesday!
