Another morning of testing at the local middle school for Middleman-the child formerly known as C-man.  LOL
Hey, if it works for the rock star formerly known as Prince...
Co-op's last day was Monday.  Bye bye Classic Lit, Science Lab and Greek & Latin.
We're down to Espanol, and Algebra I here at home and the science class at school.  Javi is wrapping things up at his school and will be done in the next couple of weeks, then graduation.  It's all a blur!

Well, that was different!  A new way to upload pictures to my blog.  Hmmmm.  Maybe someone needs to ask first before they start changing the way they do things around here!  Hrumph.

Really, it's okay.  It took a minute, but I think I got it. 

I've been free piecing during my free time in the morning.  Seemed appropriate.  Although, it sounds a little hippyish or druggish to say that.  And I keep singing "Freebird" in my head.  Hope you get to sing it to yourself all day too!  I wouldn't want you to miss the fun.  Nothing wrong with a little Lynyrd Syknyrd in the a.m.

Scraps from all over.  From friends near and far.  Greedy little hands frantically stuffing a ziploc baggie with as many as she can and still get the zipper closed.  Kaffe Fassett, Denyse Schmidt, Amy Butler, Heather Ross, Wal Mart and some vintage.  LOL  Rubbing shoulders.  Kickin' back.  Hangin' out together in my quilt.

Remember those candy necklaces you could buy?  On the teeny tiny string of elastic?  The ones you crunched off?

Those are what this quilt remind me of.  Candy on a string.  LOL

I know, I know.  Yes.  Please look at the new hole in my head.  It's there with this new project I've started.  I chopped up

(after having added a little more) into 6" squares and sashed with fun, fanciful, happy fabric.

Stay tuned!

  8. So fun, so YOU! Isn't it too weird when a song gets in your head and you can't get it out. I saw your quilt and "What a Day for a Daydream" popped into my head. I'm blaming you for this loop that will keep playing as I take out the trash and deal with life. Life. Always welcome.

    Those candy necklaces were always a favorite when I was little, but hated the soggy elastic as you got to the end!


Love hearing from bloggers wherever you are!
