More curves projects

I'm really enjoying the Curves Class I'm taking online with Stitched in Color. I know I keep saying that, but the projects are awesome. I only wish they were spaced out a bit farther apart. I missed a project last week because I ran out of time, and this week has been even crazier - I've been out (at least for a bit) every single evening.

So here are a couple of projects from the past few days:

This is my polka dot Rainbow Road table runner. It's very Spring-y looking (unlike the view outside my window). I will probably put it away until Easter, but for now it is helping to display the lovely roses Mr. P bought me for my birthday.

This week's first project was a Drunkard's Path potholder. Mine will be more like a mug rug or mini quilt because I didn't have any insulbrite. I think it's pretty cute - but it was the first project of the week (out of three) and I just finished it on Thursday. Sigh.

Oh well, I should have lots of time to get the other two projects done since I have no marking to do this weekend...or maybe never again. Today was my last day at school. I start my new job tomorrow. It was a tough morning and I got teary once or twice then composed myself. I went out for lunch with some of my colleagues and the principal allowed me to skip the afternoon staff meeting so I went for coffee with one of my favourite people (the teacher-librarian at my school, who doesn't work Thursday afternoons).

Then I went to the fabric store. Nothing cheers you up better than a trip to the fabric store.

This lovely stack of solids is for my next Curves Class project. Stay tuned...

I was in my first teaching post for 5.3 years. I cried a lot when I left to move on to somewhere new! I wish you all the best in the new job.

Wow. It's February already and time for your new job. How exciting -- I do hope you love it so much. It looks like you're keeping busy in the sewing room too. YAY!!!
