Well, school started this week, and I already have too much to do... but then again, that's nothing new!
One problem, though, is that the instructor refused to post the online course until the middle of the week instead of the beginning of the week when school actually started, so I've already lost time, and I'm not very happy about it. Mentally, for me, it's a lot like that bad dream where you show up for an interview without having taken a shower, brushed your hair, or pressed your shirt.
On a brighter note, though, my DH surprised me yesterday with a Kindle! Actually, the one he purchased hasn’t arrived yet, as it was just released this week. He gave me the leather cover it will go into as I was ranting about being behind and the possible scenarios for managing this class, one being to purchase the Kindle edition of one of textbooks. He wanted to know if I’d like to keep it, or go with another technology…that guy! I’ve been wanting one of these for awhile now, but just couldn’t justify the cost, and now it will help with school, too.
Last weekend I started 2 new Bronco quilts. The tops are together and now I'm ready to put the borders on them and decide what the backing should be. I’d love to get them quilted this weekend, but I suspect that won’t happen for a couple more weeks, if I’m lucky.
My mom also commissioned me to make a quilt for her so I've been picking out the fabrics, washing, and ironing. Now it’s ready to cut. We picked a lasagna quilt pattern, so at least that one's a pretty easy one and it should go together quickly. I’ve been planning more of these for Bronco quilts, too, I’m just not convinced I’ll get them ready any time soon.
Innovations, the machine quilting conference in Tacoma, is coming up in less than a month, too. I’m planning on being there, but I need to hurry to get signed up for my classes; the deadline has been extended to September 1st. Oh, and book my flight….
So, I’m making my list and checking it twice. Hmm….that sounds familiar, somehow…..
