Somehow I managed to survive the first week of school. It was not easy. In addition to my duties as a media specialist, I was also teaching 6 different classes a day, not an easy thing to do and make all of the teachers happy. One bright spot in my week was getting a quilt back from Leisa, my quilter. She did a most awesome job on this quilt.
This was a pattern I found in Fonds and Porter magazine a couple of years ago. I found the fabric online and put it together. I absolutely love this quilt, there are only 9 blocks, really big blocks. Leisa did a great job quilting it, now I just need to put the border on it. Maybe this weekend.

I can't believe that it has been almost a month since I made a blog post, the time has just gotten away from me. A few weeks ago, I went to Mississippi to spend a week with my mom, saw my aunt and her grandson, I guess that makes him my second cousin. He is so cute, but spoiled rotten The first thing he asked me was, "Did you bring me a present" boy was I in trouble. I explained to him that I didn't know I was going to see him that day I would have him something later, he didn't forget. I saw him a couple of days later and he wanted to know where his present was, luckily I had him a bubble gun and some "bubble stuff". That made him happy!!! This is him and my aunt, she is much more like a sister than an aunt. She is 20 years younger than my mom and I love her so much.
Right before school started last week I had a marathon wool dyeing day. Did lots of different colors, blue, green, gold and red. Still have more too do. Too bad that school is absolutely kicking my butt!!!
