Just two more days left in July. I am working
frantically steadily to get caught up. I think that I can! Though everything looks like a bit of a mess at the moment, all the pieces are in the works and the scraps have been sorted and cut. Now I can spend today and tomorrow getting everything sewn together. Many have already guessed that August will be orange this year. I used to struggle with orange, but through the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I started to enjoy the variety and spark that it adds to quilts. I have a reasonably sized basket now and I have tried to work it into quilt backs and bindings this year to keep bulking up the scrap supply
It is a busy time at school right now. Surprisingly there have been so many teachers in for pre-pre planning. For me that has meant lots of running around and checking on new people, meetings to discuss curriculum and training sessions of various sorts. Official pre-planning will start next week which will mean lots of meetings. We are all still defining my new job together, so it has been lots of fun with new things to learn. Today is for sewing though!
