Fall Festivities at ScrapHappy Saturday



Sprouts is next on the list!   I have another column which does not fit on the wall.  I think I need to add a few more blocks in blue.   The framed nine patches are my current thread catcher project, and again, it looks like I still need more purple and blue.   I guess you can tell when my life got all crazy this year.   
I wasn't at school yesterday because I got volunteered for the interview committee for teacher of the year for the south area of our county.  Usually they invite back all of last years teachers of the year and have a big panel interview extravaganza.  This year it was (of course) on Zoom, which meant there were just three of us doing the interviews.   It was a fun day with lots of passionate teachers, and it was fascinating to hear of all of the struggles we all share with the current hybrid teaching situation.   
The weekend is looking wide open, so I will have time to sew and putter around the house.   I feel like things are going to start getting hectic again at school as the cases are starting to spike again, so I am going to stand in the metaphorical eye of the hurricane and breathe for a bit.

Sprouts looks great! I hope you get plenty of stitching time this weekend and that things stay calm at school. Maybe that metaphorical hurricane will just fizzle out. Good luck and stay well.

Glad you have some time to breathe over the weekend, and hope it involves some sewing. Your sprouts blocks are looking good!

So glad you have a quiet weekend of relaxing planned. We hope we made the correct decision to send the kids back to in person on Monday. I feel bad for all the schools struggling to rearrange schedules this weekend for quarter 2 and the change mode of education. Lets hope the masking in the schools continues to work.

Enjoy your quiet weekend, Angela. Here's hoping you get some sewing done!

Fun to see your Sprouts and how you plan to set them. I had some one ask me if I was going to put flowers on top. I am not! But boy, did Diann at Little Penguin ever do a great job on hers. Have you seen hers?

I am loving the sprouts blocks! Cannot wait to see it come together! My hat is off to you teachers this year..I knew I could not handle the extra stress since I barely made it through last year with my health going downhill. I MISS it but know it was the right decision. Maybe one day again. Stay safe!
