I spent several hours cutting and gluing the pieces for my green diamond carat block for PHXMQG's Skillbuilder BOM (patterns on Pile O' Fabric) and then I sewed up the center...my fingers are done and it is far from perfect, but it saw progress!

Today my mom, dad, sister and her son, brother and his wife and newborn son came to my house for mother's day brunch! They don't make it here much so it was really nice to have them. We made Grandma Char's Egg Brunch and passed around Colton. I had a bit of a migraine so in the afternoon I took an actual nap (that is RARE!) and then got up and sewed for several hours. Kathy made her blue block and then started working on Twist of Fate again.

More blue spools!
Speaking of tables, after almost five years of being here we finally found some end tables in the mission style to match our entertainment center table. So excited to have an all matching living room--finally! Not sure why we didn't get to that sooner, but after not finding anything in the stores that really matched or struck me we just picked up cheap modern looking tables at Ikea. Then funny enough I sort of stopped looking even though I hated those tables. They will be recycled on to one of the boys--perfect bachelor type furniture!
Had my final ASL 4 class today--well they did interviews so have a little bit of grading to do and then get final grades in the computer and other semester will be under my belt, whew! I started taking an online class about teaching in the community college (which is required for teaching at a community college in AZ and is paid for by my college) and have finished three of my nine assignments already. Brings back memories of homework squeezed in anywhere--my goal is to just do an assignment or two a week which is doable. I looked ahead and the final assignment is creating my syllabus. I am way ahead on that one, ha. Just have to improve upon it based on the advice given in the course and I will be set. Irony of it all, I am not sure I am actually teaching in the fall! New health care laws mean changes for how many hours I can work with teaching and interpreting combined (used to be considered separate) so will be crunching numbers and figuring out what the plan is soon.

I also finally took a look again at Lazy Sunday Mystery (thanks Amy for the motivation!) and realized that my two completed units weren't done! I cut them all and then sewed them together and ironed them...still more to go on clue two but progress is progress!
And here is the birthday boy in motion!

I managed to start three different projects in April...two of them even reached the flimsy stage! Whoot whoot, I met the NewFo Challange for April!
