Dragging a bit....

I still have some finishing to do on my How Far Quilt (aiming for a finish tomorrow).

 This past week has been action packed:
lots of math one on ones with students who are confused
casting an hour long class play (that I wrote over winter break)
then helping kids deal with being disappointed (or learning how to be respectful with their celebrations)

Oh...and I got strep for the second time in a month (or never really got rid of the first pre-Christmas round)
 So...I'm not at 100% by any means. And many evenings this week have been spent snoozing with the dog. (Though I did get a dance class in once.)

 I did get some things accomplished. I am working on some bee blocks:

 Running with Scissors
  Running with Scissors, Jan Running with Scissors, Jan

 Boo Bee

Boo Bee, Jan
 4x5 blocks
  4x5, Hive #4, for sewallegorical 4x5, Hive #4, for Veronica AM 4x5, Hive #4, for espritpatch

Heal Blocks
  Heal, Jan block

I finished an auction item for the Handmade for Newtown auction.
It's going to have some surprises inside.

It's got a very 80s vibe to it.  I LOVE IT.

I assembled my Anna Maria Horner belt.

My goals for Sunday:
Possible picnic with The Pirate
pin basting Scrap Vomit #1
Finish the Running with Scissors bee from Oct that is messing with my spatial probs
machine sew (as in one side) the binding on the postage stamp quilt
send in my Save the Date card order
but first, and foremost, finish the How Far Quilt!

I'm trying to stay on the momentum I've got going....and eat gobs of yogurt.

For not feeling 100% and working, you still got a ton accomplished. Way to go you! I hope you kick the strep to the curb for good and can start enjoying your days. Good luck with today's To Do list.

'learning how to be respectful with their celebrations', love it!

Great job on all the blocks, and hope you kick the strep out once and for all this week!
