Tonight, the EllensburgSchool Board voted to implement a comprehensive sex education policy. Meaning that students of public schools in Ellensburg will get medically accurate and comprehensive sex education (i.e., info about condoms and birth control, as well as abstinence). Words cannot express how stoked I am. Or how proud.
Take that, certain school board member who sucks butt. She brought it to the table, thinking she could outlaw it and she lost. Big time.
I started with the kit and am working on learning and becoming proficient at basic stitches. I'm learning on an old Ikea dish towel with citrus fruit printed on it. I'm simply following the lines and trying different stitches. I'm also reading the Alabama book, but I'm thinking it will be a while before I attempt any project in that book - they're intimidatingly beautiful.
I really like embroidery - it's very mellow and simple, yet beautiful and open to all sorts of possibilities.
