Finally I finished reading all assigned text from textbook and I took my first quiz... I am so proud of myself! I answered every single question correctly and I've got a whole 100%!!! What can I say? I'm smiling from one ear to another and I think I will stitch for an hour or two so I can keep smiling. Maybe I can finish my Heart's Secret...? The stitching part is all done, I'm working on lettering. I will post picture when done.
I've learned something today! In our office we having a new employee. Her roots are from Philippines and today I asked her about Christmas traditions in Philippines. She told me that New Year celebrations are much more traditional than Christmas. They make a lot of noise to scared the bad luck, just before midnight on New Years eve they open all windows, cupboards, draws (practically anything that can be open) to attract a good luck. Wear polka dots clothes to attract money, have 12 different round fruits for every month of the year and the roundness symbolizes (of course) money. There is also a desert from sticky rice so the money will stick to a person. Neat, eh?
In Poland we have a similar tradition but the day is Christmas Eve. When I was a little girl my Mom always told me to be very good on Christmas Eve, be happy and smile a lot - then I'll be good, happy and smiling all year around. Whatever happens on Christmas Eve it will keep happening during next 12 months. So this year I decided to stitch a lot on Christmas Eve, then I will be stitching a lot a whole year around, right?
So long my friends,
