Our pencils now have a home
The weather yesterday was much more suited for indoor stuff than playing up on deck and thus it was a perfect day to bust out Rebecca’s new sewing machine and give it a whirl. We only had a very small scrap of sunbrella lying around so the size of the project would have to be limited. As Rebecca told me that during her high-school Home Ec class she made lots and lots of pencil cases it seemed only fitting that she should christen the new machine with one of the same. The case she ended up making was sized to fit more than just pencils though. She actually made it to hold all of our charting tools. It would have been handy to have this case back when we had to drag that stuff to our seamanship class each week. Speaking of seamanship classes, we still haven’t heard any results. Perhaps they are afraid to tell us?
Yes, that is a sword (a Katana, or more accurately, a Boken) hanging behind Rebecca’s head. It fits in perfectly with the disco ball!
