Today was supposed to be a school day. Instead, I am sewing away. Happily covered with stray threads and putting blocks on the wall. What a way to spend an unexpected free day.
The Sister' Choice blocks got sewn together on Saturday. I got everything ironed yesterday. No decision on borders quite yet. I'm working on synonyms for the name. Maybe Relativity?

Today is the first of our weeklong Thanksgiving Break. I am indeed grateful to have some time off to recharge and to sew! I hope that you are all making great progress on finishing up some of your RSC block collections. I have several finished flimsies in my sights for the coming week.

It was a beautiful sky this morning. Clear and brisk fall air is always a teat in Florida.

I am entering the weekend feeling refreshed and ready to go after having Veterans Day off Thursday. Only one full week of school until an entire week for Thanksgiving break. #FullStop is number one of the list as I picked up a bit more of the grey fabric to finish framing out the rows. It will be nice to have complete strips of grey to separate each row rather than piecing them.

I hope that everyone is looking forward to the coming holiday season. As busy as it has been, it will be nice to have a bit of down time at home.

The last block in the Fullstop quilt is here at last. It is the simplest of blocks. It is a sign of just how out of control my life has become that it has taken me this long to get it put together. Somehow school is just so much more than it has been in the past. More difficult and stressful for the kids, more time consuming, more of everything! I've gotten overloaded with tutoring trying to help kids get caught up and somehow just end up struggling through things that used to be so much easier. Quilting used to be a joy to look forward to on weekends, but somehow I just haven't had the mental energy lately. I am getting back into the swing though, and looking forward to finishing up some of this year's block collections.
First up of course is the quilt along that should have had the last block published last month! And so simple! I am going to turn my fullstops into a rainbow row to tie together all of the colors so far.
Finishing up is fun to do. I hope all of your projects are starting to wrap up and the catching up time coming along nicely. Please share your inspirations for those who are still stalled near the end. I am finally back to #Fullstop again and putting together the last and final block -- a Fullstop. There will be directions and finishing guidelines coming soon!
