Goodness! A whole week?!

Will you forgive me if I tell you it's because homeschooling is kicking my butt this year? I had forgotten how labor intensive first grade can be for the person teaching. And I've found keeping two children on task is quite the challenge.

It seems that by the time we've finished schoolwork and I've gotten a bit of housework done, it's already time to make dinner.

And then there isn't much time left for crafting. I have managed to complete two doll garlands this week.

This one was a custom order. It represents a friend's daughters.

And this one is mine, mine, all MINE!

I've finished piecing the top for my Four Seasons Quilt Swap quilt. I drew what I'm going to embroider on it today. Embroidering is this weekend's task. I'll have pictures soon. And a fall embroidery pattern to share, too!

Have a great weekend! (It's cool and fallish here...heaven!)
