Grad-school is back in full swing and the stress has already skyrocketed. I'm hoping it's just typical re-entry stress and that it will be gone in a week or so. In the meantime, lots of chocolate....
In-Progress: Oh My Stars and Bethlehem Star quilts.
I haven't touched the Bethlehem Star quilt and have only managed one star in the Oh My Star's Quilt Along. One. So sad.
Only 110 to go. *sigh* I have the others in this "set" cut and the flying geese parts together. Maybe I can get the blocks formed this weekend.
New Projects: Knitting and Sewing Room Makeover
I can't remember if I've shared this or not, but I started a beginners class with a friend Thursday before last and it's so fun. Next class is tomorrow. I'm supposed to have 10-inches done on my scarf and I have about two. Guess what I'm doing tonight? *cough*

On the sewing room front, a friend of mine came over last Saturday and helped me get the ball rolling. I'll be using Terrain as my inspiration fabric - there's a surprise. The walls will be a light aqua/teal and we're re-purposing some old office furniture that was in our storage room (that used to be a home-office). Next up: Cleaning out the room so I can paint.
Well, ok... next step is actually buying paint. :)
I did manage to finish my latest iPad case and I've gotten an incredible amount of comments on it. Once again, if you haven't checked out Faith's website you should check it out. Fabulous tutorials for just about anything you can imagine.
And finally, thanks so much to everyone who voted for me in the Quilting Gallery contest last week and left such wonderful comments. Jane's Black and White Quilt took first place!...y'all really know how to make a girl feel good. :)
I'm working at Karen Gray's this weekend for one of her famously huge sales. I hope all the locals will stop by. I enjoy working for her and am actually in process of setting up my first teaching class there. Woot!
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced...for the first time in what seems like forever. Hope you'll hop over there and do the same!
