If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers. ~Edgar W. Howe
Okay, so can you tell I'm ready for the kids to go back to school? We meet their new teachers today. Thing 1's 3rd grade teacher rotated up to 4th grade and it would not hurt my feelings at all if she got her again. Then there's Thing 2. He's smart, active, and all boy. He's already starting to read and he's going into kindergarten. I just want a teacher who is more concerned with him learning and keeping him busy than she is with whether or not he fits in her box. Can I get an amen? Amen! I'm praying. I'm praying hard.
On the quilting front, I finally finished up block 4 for Embroidery 101 at Clover and Violet.
I was a little worried that block 5 would come out today but luckily I have until Aug. 10th. I wanted to see how all my blocks looked together so far. Here they are.
I've also been working on my Riley Blake Christmas quilt. I had to do some quilt math. Not my strong suit. I got the sides right but messed up the top so I have to fix it. Here is where the basic quilt is headed.
Back on the home front, hubbie and I got some cute pictures of a baby deer in the backyard yesterday. Ignore the fact that he was eating our azaleas at the time; we did.
