I got the first three rows of the lightning quilt sewn together. It is a slow and steady process to get the angles right on either side, but I am very much enjoying watching this one come together. Those nine patches have been hanging out fermenting in a baggie for SO long. So glad to find a use for them. I have several more baggies to deal with, but all in good time.
I did actually empty one more baggie yesterday, converting ginormous hexies, to tiny ones for the diamond quilt. Kurt and I watched Batman Begins together after pizza night and I trimmed so many blocks that I wore a blister on my scissor finger. Ouch! It was amazing how many different fabrics I had stashed in there. Some were of questionable quality and got tossed, but the rest will make great additions to my little diamond collection.
I think this will be a calm week. Sydney is allowed to return to sports again after her mono episode. We went to watch the game as a family last Friday, but by Wednesday she will be back on the field again. Midterm exams were last week at school which means that we start a new marking period today. That means just nine more weeks of this wild and weird school year. We are down six teachers so far who just won't be back. I can't say that I blame them after the year we have all had, but it is going to be sad to see them all go. Two of them had previously planned to retire, the rest have made other plans based on the trials of pandemic education.
