It feels like fall . . .

instead of spring. They say it may frost tonight into the morning. Maybe it will be the last cold spell for awhile.

An on-line friend, Angie, thought I would like this picture.

She was right. I think it is so cool. I don't know who the owner is as it has been passed around the net. So if you are the owner of the picture, please let me know and I will give you credit.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!

A Beautiful Sunday

Craig and Becca came to visit today and as a result, I finally quilted this tabletopper.

I have been totally unmotivated to sew or quilt. Now I wonder how long it will take me to get the binding on.

It was a totally beautiful day here on Pine Ridge. I was able to sit for awhile outside in the sun and finish a book I was previewing for my 4th graders. I wish I could instill my love for reading in all of them; but, it doesn't always happen.

Five more weeks of school. I have learned not to make a list of things I want to accomplish during the summer months because it probably won't happen. But then again, maybe I will at least do something on the list.

I do want to spend more time visiting with the kids this summer. They will be working, but I can easily work my schedule around them. 

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.

I've got that joy, joy, joy, joy

down in my heart that comes from warm weather and sunshine. It is amazing how much better I feel.

On the design wall this week. Well, both projects are off the design wall.  See Patchwork Times for many great ideas.

I finally have one side of the border quilted. It seems to take forever and my hands were aching this morning, so I think I'll let my hands rest from hand quilting.

I have a tabletopper/wallhanging pieced and sandwiched--waiting to be quilted. I'll do it on the machine some time this week.

We had state testing last week so many students have the idea (attitude) that nothing else matters from now until the end of the year. Unfortunately, some teachers feel that way also.

I am trudging right along and continuing to teach -- in a little more relaxed way -- and will continue until the end of school. I do tend to add a few more fun projects that we don't have time for during the rest of the year.

I'm feeling sick about the bombings during the Boston Marathon. It saddens me that someone would even think about doing such a thing. Prayers to the families of all present there today.
