Yesterday was Wacky Wednesday at school, we are celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday with a different activity each day. Yesterday was wacky day and you should have seen some of the kids. You should have seen me!!! I went all out with camo pants, a stripe shirt and a hat with tule and a bird on it. The kids and the teachers didn't know what to think. This is me with one of our kindergarten teachers and some of her students.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”

This is one of those weeks that seems like it will never end. We have early release days at school for parent teacher conferences and we found out this week that starting Monday we will have an additional 30 minutes added to each school day. I'm not complaining at least we won't have to go back after Memorial Day. One bright spot was when I came home today my DH had picked some flowers for me, it is going to be below freezing again tonight and he wanted to save them from freezing. Daffodils are my favorite flowers.
Not much going on in the sewing department. I did get the binding sewn on this quilt, I got it back from Leisa a few weeks ago. I made it from the leftovers of a quilt that I made several years ago from the Three Sisters Chocolate Line. It is very similar to the Turning 20, but it is from a pattern called Cheaper by the Dozen. It takes 12 fat quarters plus the 2 borders, it is a very quick quilt. I need to get busy on my Christmas Reel half square triangles, just haven't been in the mood this week . What are you working on this week?

With DH out of town this weekend for a "manweekend" I got caught up on a few things. I finally finished all of my Christmas Reel blocks, now to get them sewn together and the borders done.
I also got the binding on this flannel quilt. I realized while doing the binding that I started this during our last major snow storm in 2011. Maybe we should have snow storms more often and I would get more done.

|Our house in the snow.|
One of our neighbors was out walking and thought it was hilarious that we were having a snowball fight. Like I say you are only as old as you feel!! After the snow walk and we warmed up with some hot chocolate, I headed back to my sewing room to clean some more. I swear after this I am not and I repeat not letting it get so messy, between all of the wool and cotton it looked like a natural fiber disaster area. I can proudly say that the wool is now in it's proper place and most of the cotton is. I realized that I never, and I do mean never need to buy any more fabric. I realized while going through all of my fabric that my fabric taste has definitely changed over the years. I disassembled two kits and decided that I would use the fabric for other projects. One I did because I didn't like the pattern any more, and the other because I realized that I needed the fabric in a quilt I want to start for our bedroom and who knows if I would have ever made the other one. I have sewn the binding on two quilts, now to get it stitched down.
