I'm Amazed

I find it amazing that I can walk briskly for 3 miles and feel invigorated but pace for two hours in a classroom and be weary and tired. We are doing state testing this week and are required to walk the classroom making sure the students are in the correct spot in the testing book, etc. while they are testing. We test for an hour or so and then take a 15 minute break and then test for another hour. So for two hours, I am pacing up and down the rows of students. At the end of the two hours, I feel totally worn out.

I gave the two pillows and table topper from yesterday's post to Kelsey. She is moving from her apartment to her grandma's house this summer and living there while attending college next year. So since she will have 70's red carpet in the living room, she has decided to decorate with red and black. Hence, the red and black pillows. I think she is going to put the table topper on her dining room table, but she could change her mind and use it as a wall hanging.

Tonight I worked on the pink heart embroidery piece that will be a wall hanging for my sewing room. I am using the same pattern as the blue one I gave to Kelsey.

Funny, until very recently, I didn't really like pink. Now all of the sudden I have decided I do. But you can see the green/blue color of the walls of my sewing room. Pink looks great with it.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. My daughter teaches third grade and they did standardized testing a couple of weeks ago. I'll have to ask her if she had to pace, too!

    I'm betting Kelsey is thrilled with her package! I love that top in pink. It's funny, until a couple of years ago, blue was my favorite color with a measure of green thrown in. Then it switched to purple, and now I'm fascinated with pink!

    Have a great day! :)

  2. 3 miles of brisk walking and my feet shrivel up and die, LOL. The rest of me enjoys it, but my poor feet can't handle it anymore. Maybe that's because I'm fat?

    I love pink! I like it combined with pastels, love it with brown, really love hot pink with black! Your wallhanging is adorable!

  3. I love the wall hanging. I wasn't much for pink either, but I like the pink and browns together. I think the walking thing is so much better in the fresh air. I can walk so much farther outside, but it is such a chore inside on the treadmill. Good luck with testing......

  4. I love walking outside I would hate to have to pace that way in a classroom. Love the hearts in the quilt.

  5. Pink is what I tend to go towards too. Wlaking is what I should do more of . How did you do the hearts on the quilt - I like tham!
