Quilting in August

>> Sunday, August 17, 2014

Not much quilting going on here! And not much for the next. . . while?

I got a full time teaching job that starts August 22nd - my first time as a REAL classroom teacher! I'm pretty excited and anxious and busy getting ready.

BUT quilting is my therapy and necessary to keep me happy:) This is how far I've got on my newest love - Pat Sloan's Let's Go Sew! My goal is to hang it behind my desk at school (joy!)
{You can buy this pattern as a digital download or a paper copy - 
check out Pat's digital store}

This happy rainbow of scraps is now packed away for another day. I will have to get used to setting a time limit on my quilting time instead of working at a chunk of a project. Any time spent quilting is good:)

And my latest placemat design - my good dishes - will have to wait a little bit. I wanted to make it one more time with some different fabrics to write the pattern. What do you think? Ric rac fun and a great way to use large prints.

I'll be back as soon as I can. I will be slowing down with my posting - maybe once a week with what I get done during my quilting time. 

I hope you are enjoying the end of summer {how did that happen so fast?!} and finding joy quilting:)

With Joy,

Sarah Vee

All the best to you as you start your very first school year as an actual teacher. Congrats again.
