I’m alive and I survived my first week with students. There wasn’t a lot of sewing, emailing, communicating, or cooking. In fact, there was very little of anything other than teaching, teaching, and teaching.
This picture is a pretty accurate representation of my week. I will say though that I made it through with the help of my friends. So many of you sent me emails – which totally made my week. I did manage to start a baby quilt that needs to be finished ASAP. I love that babies provide the best deadlines! I hope to have it finished by Friday… we shall see…
I’m going with a nautical theme, using the Don’t be Crabby line, and I love it! I’m playing with the whole idea of portholes, and I can’t wait to quilt this sucker. I’m using fusible interfacing for the circles, and then using some zig-zag stitch on my machine. I know, I’m so helpful.
One little fishy, done.
A stack of circles, done.
I just love these happy circles!
And, finally, here’s the layout for the quilt top.
What you expected a good photo at 11:00 pm? Ha.
Now I’m just sewing these suckers to the fabric. You see, I thought this quilt top would come together quickly. Until I started stitching them to the top. No one prepared me for this.
Baby zig-zag stitches are so not my thing.
1 down. 14 to go.
Oh, and happy day. My 100th post is coming up this week and I have a super sweet giveaway that I want to keep for myself – get excited!
