ScrapHappy Saturday - Slowly on Pink
I did sorting and organizing of pink scraps last weekend, but not a lot of sewing. I was caught up with my civics class for Florida teachers instead which is worth $3,000 in my paycheck. I must catch up on blocks today though, so the actual and true thoughts of the founding fathers will be on hold for a bit. Teaching in Florida continues to be spicy, as apparently all of us teachers are busy indoctrinating children, making them gay and tricking them into reading pornography. Who knew that schools would be the new political battleground? Never would have guessed that.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Wrapping up Blue
I am so ready to be done with blue! I finished 31 tiny blue blocks along with some crumb stars and pluses. I didn't get very far with the hexies, but I cut bricks for a someday quilt. I am going to start with a tiny pink block for February today and round up the blue scraps which have taken over my sewing space. There is a quilt on the frame as well, though the stitch regulator is being difficult. We have tickets to see Evita tonight which I am looking forward to. Kurt agreed to get a series of tickets shows with a local theater company and his choice was Avenue Q. I think that one isn't until April though. We are trying to do more things out of the house now that we are empty nesters.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Weekend of Calm
There was way too much going on this week, so having absolutely nothing to do on the weekend will be completely enjoyable. The morning sun is shining on the design wall, inviting me to add more blocks. The plus and star blocks have been leaders and enders as the bulk on my sewing has been focused on Mini blocks and binding. There should be another finished quilt to celebrate before the end of the day and I have a few more little block ideas to add to the growing collection.
The house is in a bit of shambles with Kurt being sick all week and the dog quickly declining. I will be traveling for work next week hopefully while a new desk is delivered and set up in my office. It has been on order since June, but delays have piled up at every step. Kurt's office had new furniture delivered last week as well, while he was home with the flu.
For now though, I have seen a couple of antique tile blocks. One was by Angie at Quilting on the Crescent, and the other was a mini version I saw on Instagram.What are your plans for the weekend? Please use misterlinky below to share with us all.

ScrapHappy Saturday - Week 2
Its a long weekend! DH has been gone all week and he is finally back so there is lots to do. I think that we will be able to finish the bathroom and officially clear out all the construction paraphernalia.

Back to Normal
We had a two day week at school. Such a nice way to ease everyone back in, but there is still that feeling that more needs to be done. There is testing next week, so lots of time will be spent not doing anything. I have been trying to get my steps in on those days. It is pretty easy to get in lots of walking in circles while the kids are busy bubbling in multiple choice responses.
In addition to lots of hand quilting, I've been working on these tiny blocks. I have used a combination of traditional and paper piecing so far. The blocks are so small that they go together in under half an hour from start to finish.
What are your sewing plans for blue? I put a blue binding onto one of my almost finished quilts from last year. The extra bits of blue made it into that tiny Economy block in the lower right hand corner of the photo. I think collecting together all of my blue from all the nooks and crannies will be at the top of the to do list. Use misterlinky below to let us know how your blues are starting out this year.

Last Day of Vacation
Kurt is just back from driving Ryan back to school. He had a plan to play Dungeons and Dragons tonight. Sydney won’t head back until Friday. She finally got into the lab that she needed for Chemistry! She spent most of the break checking her number on the waiting list.
It has been fun having them home again, but I am looking forward to reassembling the house again. Having everyone gone again led to lots more mess and clutter everywhere.

New Year -- New Tracking Sheets
I felt better about starting a new project after I webbed the bullseye blocks together. After surveying ongoing projects, I decided to make a trip out for backing and binding fabrics today. That should help with crossing some ongoing projects off of the list. I can't show a photo though as everything is in the wash.
