 Ah, the weekend!  I am finally feeling better and work has gone crazy!  The first set of seniors is getting acceptances into rolling admission schools and we have three that have already made final decisions.  

I am so much looking forward to some quiet time today.  Most of last weekend was spent with movies and hexies.   The photos don't show a lot of progress, but the aqua row is longer now.  How are your aqua scraps coming along?  Monday will transition to light neutrals as the color of the month.  If you don't have  light neutrals, this is your chance to catch up or lay out your block collections to figure out what is still needed.

Misterlinky worked on the first try this morning!  Please share your progress with us.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Confusion

Well that was odd, misterlinky disappeared for a bit this morning, but I found a back door and managed to get in.  Speaking of disappearing, our Friday night margarita date night restaurant is closing at the end of the month.  Our friends came out with us last night to say farewell.   I am not sure what we will do on Fridays now, but it has been nice not having to make a decision.  When I get in my car on Friday to drive home, it tells me how long to get to Little Dos.   My car is a bit scary sometimes.   

I have been down all week with a head cold.  I tested negative for Covid, but it still did me in.  Hoping to be more human next week.   I guess there is one more week left in September though, so I don't have to worry about a new color quite yet.   

How are your aquamarine/teal/blue-green scraps coming along?

ScrapHappy Saturday

Lots of fun with teal hexies going on around here. How are your scraps? We are off to enjoy a UF game with Sydney during her sorority family weekend. I do believe that there will be some hand sewing time on the car ride. Enjoy your weekend quiet time. Mister linky is below

Turtle Krawl

We ran a 5K this morning! So after a quick shower I will head down to the studio to see what I can sew up. I pulled a quilt off of the frame last weekend, finding another to load up might be first on the list today. Sydney took the hanging rack that used to hold all of my flimsies waiting for quilting when she went back to school this year. I ordered a new one, but some assembly is required. I am hoping that Kurt will put that on his "honey do" list this morning so that I can get a bit of organization done. How are your aqua scraps coming along?

ScapHappy Saturday - Long Weekend

It is a long weekend after a mid week break on Wednesday for the hurricane that didn't come here. Looking forward to an extra day in the sewing room sorting through aqua scraps.

ScrapHappy Saturday

Yellow hapiness! Just a few more days to finish up this month. September will be all about aqua. I won't talk about school at all this week, it just gets stranger with each new rule. Sydney is safely settled into her new apartment and got into the sorority that she had fallen in love with during rush. Anna is enjoying her fall routine but sad that everything is crowded again now that the undergraduates have returned. We are still sharing cars and waiting for Kurt's to come back from the shop, but I haven't been abandonded at work yet this year, so that is a win! Ryan was in a fender bender last weekend with one of the last two drivable cars. I am living in fear now that someone is going to crash my poor Subaru and I will be grabbing an uber to work every day.

ScrapHappy Saturday

Looking forward to some sunny yellow time today! Tomorrow we will deliver Sydney's stuff to her apartment, she already went up to start rush, but can't move in until 3 Sunday. So he has been couch surfing and we will bring so many boxes of clothes and everything else to her. The child does not know the meaning of minimalism! Honestly, I am not sure it will all fit!

ScrapHappy Sunshiny Day

Just back from a run and looking forward to digging into some yellow today. I tried hard to get out before it got too hot, but I came back just dripping sweat.  Florida is August isn't quite a nice as in January.   Hopefully it will start to cool down soon.  
I have a quilt waiting for a back, a basket of yellow random happiness and a quilt on the frame.  
At least some of that will happen today.  

 We had a 2 day week with students, it was nice to settle in slowly.  We still can't teach AP Psychology or call students by any name not on their birth certificate.  What a strange world.  On Monday we are expecting the permission slip so that Thomas can be Tommy again and Cynthia and be Cyndi.   I do feel a bit bad for the kid whose parents named him Lester, but everyone is too terrified of being sued under the new law to risk anything that hasn't been officially sanctioned.  I keep hoping that once we get past this things will settle back to something more normal again.  Until then, fabric hasn't changed much and nobody has declared rainbow quilts to be illegal yet.   Let us sew!

What day is it?

I got up bright and early today to go and take a test to become a certified media specialist. That makes me qualified to approve books! Somehow that made me forget what day it was. I just now realized it was Saturday and I never posted! Wow, I can't remember the last time that happened.  
I am going for happy chaos in the sewing studio.  I pulled out a few quilts that are ready to be finished. I haven't dug into the yellow for August yet, but I accomplished quite a few red hexie diamonds in July and not much else.  Sometimes hand stitching is just the right pace.  
Yesterday was registration when the kids pick up schedules. I spent much of it trying to talk kids out of dropping AP Psychology from their schedules in case Florida and College Board can't figure out how to amicably settle their disagreement without taking potential college credit away from thousands of students.  It seems now like the state department of education has blinked, but our district had already announced that we would not offer the course.  I am still guessing that things will work out without the kids having to drop the course.  I never could have predicted the path of education in our state.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Binding Time

I am going to enjoy binding time today.  We just got back from Jamaica and I haven't quite gotten back into the swing of things.  
Then I need to dig into some reds, because on Tuesday we will pulling out the yellow.  I am not overwhelmed with the sunnier side of the rainbow, so it should be a good month for me to play a little catch up.   School starts on Wednesday for teachers, so there will be a big shift in my immediate day to day.  I never fully got into summer mode this year, so it won't be as much of an adjustment as usual.   Our new history standards are making national news, and clearly we are still having a teacher shortage around here, but we are so close to being fully staffed before the first day at my school.   Wish us all luck!
