All that ice also led to a 2 hour late start the next day. Late starts are something we rarely have. Our superintendent doesn't really believe in them. He thinks two hours doesn't make much of a difference. That leads us to driving on some slick roads at times. I was thankful for this late start as the snowplow didn't come by until right before I was to leave home.
What did I do all day? Well, I sewed of course! I had worked on Trina and Tanner's baby quilt the night before and had almost gotten the top together. I wasn't happy with it and thought about it through the night. So, I tore it apart and started over. Got it all completed and sent it off to be quilted. I can't show pictures until the baby is born. They've seen the fabric(The Very Hungry Caterpillar), but I want them to be surprised with how it turned out.
Yesterday I spent a large chunk of time with these:
After that I hit the craft room. I still had those L'Amour charm packs to do something with. I used one pack and made this table topper. Using the free pattern from The Fat Quarter Shop.
Sore shoulders and an aching back is what I got with all of that sitting, grading, and sewing! But it's a good feeling of accomplishment.
