Randomness for a Thursday

We are heading for the end of the school year here in Colorado, and to keep our kids engaged and having fun we have decided to have a Hobby Fair.  Of course, I had to show the kids some thing about my own hobby to help them see what was expected.  Well, there is nothing like a little admiration from your students to make you feel like the best quilter in the world.
           "You made that?"
           "Wow!  It's so cute!"

I love their enthusiasm!   It makes up for the not so wonderful comments we often get when activities  are less than exciting for them!


The end of the school year is a difficult time to get any sewing in.  I have many WIPs, but have made little progress.  I was on a good roll with my Scrappy Trip blocks, but cut some strips to make a block about a week ago and haven't been back to my sewing machine since.  I keep trying for just 15 minutes a day, but I can't even make that.  I am so looking forward to summer vacation! 
 
My scrappy trip quilt is starting to take shape, however, and I really want to keep going.  Here's how it looks so far.
 
 
That being said, I think I'll go sew!

Linking up with Cindy at Live a Colorful Life!
