Waiting...waiting

Until I have time to complete the Be Yourself quilt.

I finished quilting and sewed on the binding Sunday afternoon/evening (after I finished all my school work, of course).


Last night, I didn't get home from work until after 10 pm! We had our annual dog and pony show Open House to attract new students to the school. As in previous years, I was in charge of costumes. This year, our theme was Happily Ever After which meant we had to outfit 37 students in fairy tale costumes. What a huge job!

Today after work I had to go downtown to the court house. Last week I received a juror summons for a trial that was slated to begin in April and last 18 weeks! Eighteen! Let's see... that would take me through my International Baccalaureate students' exams in mid-May, through the rest of the semester and my grade 12 students' provincial diploma exams and... all through summer vacation. So...no. My employer wrote me a letter asking that I be excused and it was accepted. Whew. I am so relieved.

Tonight is kettlebells class. I'll be home around 8 pm, but who knows if I'll have the motivation or energy to hand-sew at that time. I'm thinking an early bedtime and a good book might be in order.

So, until I have a fairly lengthy chunk of time to devote to it, Be Yourself will just have to wait.


And wait some more...


...probably until the weekend arrives.

p.s. I linked to Fabric Tuesday on Quilt Story today!

That is a lot of quilting! It looks great and it will wait patiently for you to finish it!

I'm glad you got off that jury duty. I had to laugh at what you called the Open House before you crossed those words out.

That Be Yourself quilt looks SO good! I love the quilting. Oh, thank goodness you were excused from that case. That would have majorly disrupted your life.
