Quilt Progress & Back to Work
This is the best these fabrics have smiled for their photos yet. Taken after dark in the light of an Ott lamp. No, it's not a design wall--just some stacks of fabrics.
I did get the plants watered before dark--but I may have some dyeing pansies.
Today was my first day back at work. I had to deal with headaches and nausea all day, but I also had lots of hugs from students who were so glad to have me back. They are still putting more students in my class. Probably one of the best things that happened to day was that one of those new students told me how much he likes the class already. Their schedules are a mess. I'm supposed to be teaching reading, writing, and math at the same time several times each day. The kingdom is ruled by the "Master Schedule" and with students in first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grade (I hear a sixth grader is coming), there is no doubt that the Master Schedule overpowers common sense and assuring that the programs are delivered with fidelity. (Guess I should just chill since the teaching materials have disappeared.)
Anyway, I don't think I'll manage even 15 minutes of sewing today since I need to get the various conflicting schedules into one color-coded data base so I can find some solution to the scheduling issues. I'm hoping the job goes quickly because I also need a relaxing bath with a couple of cups of Epsom salts to see if that might help the awesome headache.
I'm going to link to some parties, because who knows how much time I'll have to blog now. (It was almost 6 p.m. when I got home after having to stop to pick up a few groceries and a prescription. Tomorrow I'll probably have to drop by the neurologist's office because I still haven't received a copy of their release for records, and I need the records.)
For more quilting goodness from other bloggers, stop by to visit Judy at Patchwork Times and Connie at Free Motion by the River.
I'm thinking I'll probably start being late linking up with other blogs--sometimes too late to link up at all. That won't break my heart--but I definitely will not be so happy about not reading and commenting so often! Also, I love the new-to-me blogs I discover through linky parties, so three hours or so each day commuting will definitely impose some unwelcome limits.
