ScrapHappy Saturday - And then it was calm


It was a blissfully calm week at work.  Such a nice change of pace. Next week I will take a few extra days off in exchange for the extra hours I have been working.  
Kurt has had his turn at a crazy few weeks at work instead and he is also looking forward to having a few days off.  Here is a flock of geese crossing a road because I guess they forgot that they can fly?
We are still working to find a replacement for our usual Friday night margarita place.  We found another within walking distance of home and the food and drinks were both excellent.  It was quite empty during the dinner rush on a Friday though, so that does not bode well,  

I have quite a bit of sewing to catch up on today.  November is supposed to be quilt assembly time.  I might be able to assemble some of last year's block collections.  This year has taken a bit of a sewing hiatus lately.  How are your block collections coming along?  Hopefully you have a quilt to two ready to come together soon.

ScrapHappy Saturday -- Its the end of the week!

Some weeks are longer than others. Yesterday was our school career fair and the end of a lot of extremely long work weeks. I am so much looking forward to not working this weekend!

Scrappy and Happy in October


I love seeing what people do with the neutral and makeup months.  I have lost all hope of getting caught up for now but want to play with some light neutrals to add a row to the top of this sprouts quilt that ended up square.  I don't enjoy square quilts as a rule, so I was thinking of adding some blossoms to the top to enlarge it a bit.  The big career fair is next Friday so thing should calm down at work after that.  Kids have been frantically finishing up college applications and asking for lots of help which is great!  It just doesn't leave a lot of time to get the fair ready, so that has been happening on evenings and weekends.  Not a great work life balance at the moment, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel that leads to some quiet sewing time.

Scrappy Happy Saturday

 Loving the weekend!  Work is a mad dash at the moment and sleeping in this morning was the best feeling.  Follow it up with some sewing and sorting of scrap?  Sounds like my plan.  What is yours?
