I have been working on a project for school most of the day, and I decided to take a break and check out some fellow quilter's blogs and update mine. I had to get my hair done this morning, I was getting that "skunk look" as my husband calls it. The roots were definitely showing. After a visit with Kristine, I had to drive out to Conyers and pick up my sewing machine. I dropped it off last Saturday. Thankfully it wasn't anything too major, the bobbin case and a fuse had to be replaced. Of course since I was in Conyers I had to drop by Sweet Home, I got out of there without spending too much money. I picked up some batik for sashing, a couple of end of bolt pieces and a gorgeous piece of cotton that looks and feels just like linen. I have an Indygo Junction tunic pattern that I am going to use with it. I also finished block # 3 of the Bunny Hill baskets. Here it is.
Now it is time to get back to work on my action research project. My topic is the Importance and Benefits of Reading Aloud to students. It has been a great opportunity to work closely with two classes at my school. I am going into each class twice a week and reading aloud to them. There has been a definite increase in the number of students that say they like being read to. I just have to put the final touches on it, read over it and submit it to my teacher. Wish me luck
