I haven't done any substitute work in forever. The two districts I work for have been on spring break (two different weeks), and no one has needed my services even before their breaks. So I've been keeping myself company at home, and I'm boring myself to death.
I've done some sewing, however, which has been soothing. It feels good to be productive. Despite the fact that I organized and counted my UFOs, the first thing I did was make a new top. Here it is:
I copied the pattern idea from the Queen of Cool Settings: Tammy at Sunshine.
This was a UFO, but for some reason I didn't count it. It was sandwiched and ready to quilt, so I knew it would get done soon. Guess that's why I didn't count it.
This is the first of the counted UFOs which I am starting to tackle. These SBS blocks have been sitting around for.ev.er. I really don't like SBS, so it wasn't fun to contemplate working with these. Today I just charged ahead and got the top put together. Whew! I'll be glad when this one is done and out of the house.
I managed to read one book: The Dark Side of Innocence: Growing Up Bipolar by Terri Cheney. Interesting book! I'm halfway through another book. Think I'll go do some more reading.
