We've Hit a Wall

I am mindlessly sewing and it feels good. No plan today other than to empty bags of extra bits and pieces. These tiny nine patches and churn dashes were from the OMG! quilt of several years ago. They are fairly random, but I'm enjoying the fondling of the fabric today. NOT thinking about the 1,623 Covid cases and 8,303 quarantines my district has managed to accomplish in the first two weeks of school. NOT thinking about the 11 positive staff members at my school. Most of them should be back soon, not the ones who were very sick, but the mildly symptomatic and vaccinated portion of the group. Celebrating small victories.

Its been two weeks since school started, and things are clearly not going well. I will try to put all of that out of my mind for the weekend though and think of other things. I have two days with no plans and I will enjoy every minute. The sunrise was beautiful, the sea turtles are still nesting and with my daughter back at school again I have access to my sewing room again.

Anna is home this weekend sleeping in my sewing room, so I'll enjoy a bit of handwork on the balcony in between rain from Fred. Please stay safe! Sewing is the perfect socially distanced thing to do when outside is scary.

Though I won't be sewing much for the next couple of weeks, I hope you are digging into your teal, aqua, blue-green stash. I love this color and am using it so much more than I used to. School is back in session on Tuesday though, and my list on non sewing tasks is long right now. We've been busy with teacher meetings all week and there hasn't been much time for my own curriculum, planning and class prep yet. I am looking forward to digging in today. On day one of meetings, there were 5 teachers with masks. On day 5 of meetings, about 60% of teaches were wearing masks, one teacher had tested positive and another was awaiting test results. This year will be a fascinating epidemiological experiment.
There is an August block though, so please scroll down if you are playing along with the #Fullstop quilt. For everyone else, please share your projects with us all.
