ps, I've only been using my stash for these quilts - still no new fabric purchased in two months! I did have to buy several packages of batting. I'm scientifically comparing to see which is best. On sale at Joann's last weekend - 50% off - score!

Would you believe that I started this quilt on Sunday and finished on MONDAY?!?! I know, I'm impressive. And it turns out baby quilts are super fast and easy! I just calculated a quick design, cut out some patches, and stitched 'em together on Sunday. Then yesterday I added the backing, machine-quilted it, and finished the binding lickety-split! Hurrah!

I love the hens-and-chicks that grow in my rock wall...but can someone tell me if these are dying?Now it's time to start the big "sprinter" clean up. Too bad snow is in the forecast!

So I made a little pouch with a clasp. Attach it to the strap of your bag and you won't have to dig to the bottom for the little things you need. Would people buy these?

These two have been constantly on my iPod/iPhone:
The Forgotton Garden (Kate Morton) is so so so so good. Exactly the kind of book I like!
What else has been on my mind? Rocks! Rocks, rocks, and more rocks. The topics of the unit I'm designing for my curriculum design class. Therefore I get to spend A LOT of time thinking about rocks. More than I ever though I would in fact. And I love geology.
I had a retail therapy moment when I purchased a shiny new binder for my kids' reading assessments...go crazy!!
So there you have it! Guilty pleasures, great books, rocks, and school supplies. Yep, I'm living the dream!

is taking me f o r e v e r to get through...not because it isn't good...I just have no time to read. :( But I did finish this one over Christmas break:
juliet : : by anne fortier
and this one recently via audiobook:
true grit : : by charles portis
right now I'm listening to...
the forgotten garden : : by kate morton
really good so far! Audio really is the way to go for me. Listening in the car = more than an hour of "reading" every day. Sad and awesome at the same time!

So yeah. Teaching math to 2 second grade classes is pretty awesome until it comes to correctin' time. My rough calculation tells me that the approximate number of math pages I corrected today (that the kids did today) was around 300.......!
To do tomorrow: let kids take breather.
