So…. not much stitching done in the last few days, but I do have a good excuse! Saturday was a really big day for me and my daughter. Twelve years ago we both started TaeKwon Do, a Korean martial art. I only started because I really wanted her to do it and being the stroppy five year old that she was, she threw down the challenge of “I’ll do it if you do it”. I thought I would just have to do a few classes then I could drop out, and as long as she was still taking classes that would be fine. But guess who got hooked? Yes, it was me. So twelve years later we are both still very much involved with TaeKwon Do, and Saturday saw us both testing for the rank of 4th degree black belt. It was truly wonderful to be able to test for this with my daughter at my side. How lucky I am!
Since we were both testing, we couldn’t take any pictures but there were plenty of cameras there, so hopefully I’ll have pictures to show you soon. My daughter’s friend (who also takes classes with us) sent us this as a congratulations gift. Wasn't that sweet? It's almost too pretty to eat!
