Trying to be random!

I have to admit I'm not very good at being intentionally random, although I love the random posts that  other bloggers write for Thursdays.  I'm more of a "concrete sequential" person if you know what I mean!  As a teacher, you spend your days trying very hard NOT to be random.  When you are, you learn very quickly that your students lose their focus and get out of control.  And that's not good!!

But, here goes:

We have Spring Break coming up this week.  Everyone-students, teachers, and spouses are looking forward to the break.  I'm going to be visiting my mom in Arizona.  It should be summer-y there, which will be wonderful since March has been cold and snowy here in Colorado.  Mom and I are going to dye some silk scarves with men's silk ties that I've been collecting.  I posted about that earlier here.

I finished the March block for the And Sew On Block of the Month at Quiet Play.  It has been fun to practice my paper-piecing skills on these blocks.  I'm still using my seam ripper though!  I really liked this block, with all of its spools.  Can't wait to see what April's block will be.

Spring is slowly coming to Colorado.  By the time we get back from our Spring Break trip, there will probably be daffodils blooming in my garden.  I always enjoy the daffodils - they are such a happy color!

Happy Spring, everyone!
