Rainbow Catch Up


I finally had a home day to sew to my heart's content.  The combination of time and motivation has been hard to find lately, but yesterday my stars all aligned.  I started by finishing up some red postage stamp blocks for August.  Each of these monster blocks will get a white frame and then another band of  colored blocks.  
Then I did a little inventory to figure out what colors were missing and dug into the blue and green bins.  There are some aqua strip sets in there as well, but probably not enough for an entire block quite yet.
I am starting to get into a routine again with school.  It is a big transition for everyone, but we are all getting there.  There bigger issues of budget cuts, increased workload and evaluations to think about, but on a daily basis, the teaching part is still the same.  I keep telling myself that and it seems to be working so far.  I spent a few hours last night getting things ready for the week, so I am hoping that will help me keep my head above water this week.  I'll deal with next week when it gets here.

I don't have kids in school anymore - I know our school really cut everything in half as our school population dropped to half after the Irene flooding.

I love your postage stamp rainbow blocks. I look forward to seeing how you put them together for a quilt top.
My thoughts are with you. Take care of yourself, Angela.
