Status Report

I fell down the rabbit hole of busy working mom.  I am a high school teacher, and after 15 years, I got my dream assignment of teaching World History.  Unfortunately, new class = lots of homework (lesson planning) for me, so I haven’t had much time to quilt.  We are at the midpoint of the semester so I have finally settled into a routine.  The other crimp in my style is my daughter’s figure skating career.  She is practicing two solo routines for fall competition, and she is in a group number in November and a holiday show with two weekends of performances in December.  I haven’t found a way to sew at the ice rink, but I try to get my grading done there.

I am still working on stars for my True Blue 92 quilt:

This beauty, pieced by my mom from a Judy Niemeyer pattern, is on my longarm. I am doing lots of custom filler designs so it is taking a while.

And the biggest news of all, three years in the making… My first book!
