A few weeks ago, our homeschooling co-op was asked to partner with two other schools (a private Islamic school and an Indianapolis public school) to compete to win the chance to send a science experiment into space on the last Atlantis shuttle mission.
How cool is that!
We've been divided into teams and Middleman was (ahem) volunteered (ahem) to be team researcher. LOL
Ideas have been bursting over heads like little lightbulbs going off.
Seedlings in space?
So many possibilities.
Only, nothing flammable.
Gee. Wonder why?
Through the last week, I decided to add a string border to the Grandma's Dresden Garden block. I used this tutorial I found while looking at this flickr photostream.
I've decided to sash them with a solid called Lemon Yellow from Joann's and make it a quilt. It's just not working as a table topper. I have several more Dresdens made and am working on more string borders for them.
On a medical side note, thanks to all who ask how my mom is doing. Sunday night she was taken to the ER by my dad. Two days later, she's home with a stint for a kidney stone. Evidently these are side effects of the chemo she's on. Please keep her in your prayers!
I'm linking up with Lee for WIP Wednesday. I love looking through other ladies' blogs and seeing all the happy, beautiful projects they're working on. They really inspire me to get out to the den and sew even on dreary, rainy days.
