ScrapHappy Saturday - Sew Happy to be Home Again


What are the odds that I would have been out of town for the first three weekends in April?  Now that the orange month is almost at its end, I am SEW happy to have a home day!  These poor little butterfly blocks have been sitting here so patiently, waiting to be sewn.  They will get their turn first and then I will see what other orange mischief I can come up with before it is time to switch colors.  AP testing starts Monday, that is the point at which regular teaching is just a faint hope for the upperclassmen.  Senior boards were Thursday and the senior prank followed on Friday, so they are truly, officially, feeling that the end is in sight.  I must say, I was a fan of this year's Christmas in April theme.  We all arrived at school on Friday morning to a giant sleigh on the front lawn with fake snow and artificial trees decorating the pavilion.  So many rolls of wrapping paper!  The kids had a holiday dance party in their pajamas and Christmas sweaters.  They did, eventually come to class, but regular lessons were not really part of the plans.  My freshmen still have two weeks until their end of course exam, so hopefully they will be a little more cooperative so that we can get some quality review time in.
Misterlinky is below, please share your orange progress.  Mine is woeful and small, so seeing all your beautiful projects is an inspiration.
