Energy and Blocks of the Month

Hey all,

When I went to the guild meeting I had not completed both of my ( block of the month with Amy Gibson) blocks.  My studio had become such a mess in trying to finish up a few things before school took over my life, that I could not find enough green to cut 16 2.5 inch blocks of the green.  I had cut and assembled some of the blocks when I realized I had forgotten I was short two blocks.  So I had to go with them part way done...embarrassing!  Yesterday evening, while sewing with Bonnie Hunter's live quilt cam, I straightened up the sewing area and found a piece of the green about 12 inches square, so I was able to cut the extra 2 blocks I needed and finish the block.   Relief!!  I sure did not want to take out at least half the others so it would look scrappy.  Love a star block!!

    By the way, if you are not following Bonnie Hunter, you may want to start.  When she is running her live quilt cam, it is like sewing with friends and she gives out lots of tips on how she does things.  Of course this is probably the worst day to tell you that as she is heading to Bali for a 10 day trip, and probably won't have it running.  She said she would if she has wifi...just have to wait and see.  It may be at weird times due to the time difference.  

    I don't know what is happening to my energy level.  I feel like all I want to do is get on the couch and take a nap.  I made a roast this morning. I am really not that much of a meat eater.  Thought maybe I needed more protein, but still not feeling like doing much.  Maybe I need some vitamins.  Still need to type in lesson plans and more grade and go through the mail...better get to it.
