A little progress

on the first of my "fall" quilts. As you can see from the picture, I sewed a couple of the long sashings last night. I really am going to like this quilt and am excited to get it together.

I don't seem to have very much time to spend sewing in the evening. I have been spoiled for years because Larry has been cooking on the days he is off. So I can stay at school until time to eat. But, now he is working 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is home each night. I have pretty well taken over the cooking and it has been going good. But, I have to make myself leave school by 4:30 each day.
This changing to 6th grade is kicking me in the behind.  Have you ever tried to teach 6th graders how to analyze text and recognize and discuss the underlying messages in poetry. Or how to compare two informational articles from different sources. Their little minds just don't always want to cooperate. Or, is it their attitudes at that age? lol

 But, I will persevere. :)

We have a school over the bridge from us (about a 10 minute drive) where 20 of the teachers and staff members were trained as security guards this summer and will be carrying guns. I have such mixed feelings about this. The state gave them a license. Then said, "No, the could not legally carry guns in a school setting." Then, yesterday the ruling was overturned and they will be carrying guns, maybe starting today. I'm glad it is not me. What are your thoughts?

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. I think our teachers should be equipped to carry guns to protect the innocent and bring down the guilty.

    Your quilts are so beautiful! I enjoy reading your posts. :)

  2. I'm a teacher too. As much ad I love what I do, I draw the line at carrying a gun. I'd quit first
