Circling in on a Finish

I finished sewing down the last circle last night while watching Barefoot in the Park on Netflix.  After spending most of the day crawling around on hands and knees, Leap Year 366 is finally a flimsy!  It just needs an outer border which is already cut out and waiting.  Then I can get it layered and basted.  The plan is to hand quilt this one.
First though, I'd better go and hop through the shower.  These hurricane cancellations are starting to feel a lot like spring break.  Ms. Johnson is having a teacher pot luck get together tonight and I need to think of something interesting to bring.  Food at the grocery store is a little sparse so it will be more about what they have than what I would like to make.
Anna has been working on college applications today and Sydney fell off her bike and skinned her knee and elbow.  We all went to Goodwill this morning to do a bit of shopping for spirit week.   Anna had all the themes from the senior chat group.  School starts again on Monday.  Getting back to normal is going to feel good.

The quilt looks great. There is definitely something to be said for having a schedule sometimes. Wishing you all a gentle re-entry to your everyday life.

awesome quilt, just realized each color is a MONTH! clever.
have you seen an idea with the weather temp each day and you add a block that's color coded for it each day, up to you how you want to separate the temps. I saw it first as a crochet idea, then I did an EQ tutorial on it, and I really want to try it, but your idea of doing the month like this is awesome!!

Awesome quilt! Since you seem to handquilt very fast - can't believe you finished five during the hurricane! - this one should be finished in no time!

Love all those bright circles. It is such a fun quilt. Congrats on having it almost to the finished flimsy stage. Hope Sydney isn't feeling too bad and that Anna isn't stressing too badly about the college applications. Those are a lot of work. Have a great weekend. Sounds like things are slowly returning to normal.

Yowza, you got a ton done in your week of down time! I bet you are happy to finish those circles. I'm glad you all came through the storm in good shape. As it turned out, my night ended quite poorly -- with a trip to emergency! You never know, do you?
