So, what have I been up to? Why, getting ready for school of course! I have been ready for school since July, but most of my time all of August was getting ready for school, thinking about school and doing school. We started about 2 1/2 weeks ago and it has been great, so far….
See, I really am doing something! Grading math papers is always fun….
Who ever thought it was a great idea to correct math problems really needed to get a life… Not my favorite part of school, but a necessary evil..
The one crafty thing I have been working on since July, is art journaling. I found a book about it at Barnes and Noble and I am hooked. I am even going to be teaching a class on it at our homeschool co-op. It starts this Friday!
I hope that you all have a wonderful last day of August. September starts tomorrow, in case you were wondering…
I found an empty ( I made it empty) plastic bin and started throwing in all of the scraps that I couldn’t fold into a fat quarter. You know, all of the scraps that you save and hoard because you might need them some day?
Then I started gathering up all of the leftover strips and bindings that I have left over into a plastic bag. They are too pretty to just throw away. I really might need them some day…
I found these blocks too. I don’t know what I will do with them, but I might need them too. I am not usually a pack rat about any thing else in the house. Just my quilt fabric….
And then there were triangles. Lots of left-over triangles. They are from quilts I made years ago and could not throw away. Guess what? I still can’t throw them away. I am going to leave them by my sewing machine and I AM going to sew them together. I AM going to press them and then, and then…
I don’t know what happens then….
One thing I do know, I can walk into my closet now. I can see what I have in there, and I can actually reach things without tripping. That sounds like a good deal to me.
I have a confession to make though. I did actually throw away some stuff. Some scraps are just not usable after all. So, I think that means I don’t really have a problem…
