My students had their second show yesterday for the elementary school.
It went really well. My OCD tendencies kick in when I'm stressed, so I already had the breakdown of the set plan in place before the show. Kinda sucked a bit that I was not as "in the moment" as I wish I had been, but I was being mindful of coordinating almost thirty cast members while trying to keep safety in mind.
Now, I'm just feeling tired.
I have been sleep deprived for about a week now, and I don't do well without sleep over an extended period. Getting up in the morning has been very difficult...especially with a warm smooshy dog trying to lure you back to sleep. (Seriously, folks, he does this Valentino bedroom eyes thing when he wants you to nap with him....Hi-larious.)
Valentine's was nice. I was too tired to be super enthusiastic...which I felt bad about. The Pirate got me a travel drive so I can back up all my pics. (I had a disaster a couple of years ago when my harddrive crashed and ate a cross country road trip's worth of photos..and my memory card for my camera had been reformatted...OH HOW I CRIED.)
I got him chocolates (well, us, because I ate some) from Lagusta's Luscious.
The Raspberry chocolates were AMAZING. We haven't dipped into the anatomical hearts yet.
I also made him the first 2 of about a half dozen shopping bags.
The Pirate goes to the Farmer's Market for our food mostly and comes back with an insane amount of plastic bags...which we both hate.
I used Canoe Ridge Creations bag tutorial. It was really easy to follow. I can see whipping up a bunch of these.
I'll post pics tomorrow.
I posted my bee blocks for my last 4x5 block and my Sew Bee It blocks. (Internationally posting requires going when the post office is actually open.)
I still have a few other things to post this weekend.
(Got to pack up my Mouthy Stitches items.)
Sewing plans for tomorrow/this weekend:
*Finish my Sparkle quilt QAL. (just have to sew a couple of pieces of sashing as well as baste and quilt)
*New Bee on the Block Feb block
*secret item for secret person
*Sew my FTLOS big item. Prep pieces of small item.
*Attempt a paper pieced block
*sew up the most recent Sew. Happy. Quilt block. (I cut the pieces but haven't sewn them yet.)
Also to ponder.....
*finish my Rockin Robin quilt top and back. (I have to sew on sashing and piece a strip for the back)
*baste the random block quilt...I think the top may need sashing.
If I can finish these two, I'll have 6/8 finishes on my Finish Along list.
The red, grey, black bee quilt should be the easiest finish left on that list...and I need to check what #8 was....hmmm.
*work on my Tango challenge quilt. I have the fabrics. I have the plan. I just haven't sewn.
