Finished!

  • Another knitted project (trying to be cryptic here so I don't give too much info away)
  • A quilt top and the backing. I'm going to pin it after work tomorrow. I like to use the classroom floors to lay out my quilts rather than do them on the hardwood at home. That would be a disaster! Hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll have an update on this saying that I'm finished the whole quilt, finally.
  • Most of the marking that came in today - and tomorrow is a PD day so no kids at school!
  • My very good book The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb. I'm so sad it's done. Now what am I going to read...?
Some finishes are good; others not so much.


This week brought good mail! I received two cards from my ATC swap group. Our theme was "The Witching Hour."

    The one on the left is from Stacy; the right hand card is from Cory. I think they're so beautiful!

    And here are the cards I sent out for October. I made two different styles this month because I wanted to try both the witch stamp and the spider web.

Well, I think I'm also finished with this day. It's time for me to go to bed!

Night night.

The cards you made are soooo nice. Lucky you to be able to get on the floor to put the quilts together, if I got down I'd never get up. LOL

Holy Cow -- how are you getting all this stuff done with all of your schoolwork??? The cards look great -- I'll be cheering your quilt on while I'm trying to do one of my own LOL!

Do you sleep?? The ATC you did are great! Stacy's is cute too. I commented on her blog about it. I wish I had papercrafting talent. I tried once. It's just not in me.

You can tell it's a good book when you don't want it to end. I know exactly what you mean.
