Big Sigh

I don't know why Sunday always ends with a big exhale of exhuastion. I don't feel like I accomplished much, but I've been frantically busy. Such is life I suppose. I got a bit of cleaning and laundry done. Sydney and I planted some herbs and flowers in the yard. We had a series of playdates. When there were a few down minutes here and there I got some sewing done on the buttons and bowties. I'm hoping to finish off my March quilt before April arrives. Most of the blocks were already cut and the circles were prepped, so I don't have that much more to do. I just sewed everything that was ready to go and I'm almost finished. I've laid it all out and I think I only need 5 more blocks to make a twin sized quilt. If things stay calm for a few more minutes I can pull some more nickel squares and pair them up for circles.
While I was puttering, I found a charm pack at the bottom of my 5 inch square box from the sock monkey line of fabric. I had completly forgotten it existed. So I pulled some coordinating 2.5 inch strips to turn those into happy blocks. Honestly I need to pull out my school work and power my way through some grading. I gave tests on Friday and collected labs on Thursday. The quarter ends midweek I think, and everyone wants to know where they stand. And of course, the same thought hits me every Sunday about this time, I'd better figure out what I'm teaching this week. Big sigh as the cycle continues.

Oh Angela
Ditto, ditto, ditto! Your comments remind me of what one of my Freshmen said last week....."Why do I procrastinate so much? The stress is too much to handle right now." BOY, did he hit it on the mark. I hope you were better at getting to your homework than I was; because I DIDN'T! I know tomorrow will be "balls-to-the-walls" for me because of my avoidance today. (BIG SIGH FROM ME!)

These buttons and bow-ties must have been hiding in a closet for SOME TIME! I have never seen them, and I've been around for about a year now....
Good for you to keep pluggin' away at UFO's.

Here's to a good week!
