It's so sad when my full time job gets in the way of my quilting.
 oh, yes!

that and I sit and watch TV at nite, too tired to do much.  I did get the binding on the red hearts quilt I made from the block exchange, double sided and it came out good.  I'll post a picture later.

Oh do I know that feeling Debbie.  The kids I teach have other problems beside learning the English language.  Some need special services but don't seem to merit them until they have enough English to determine that those special services are the only thing that is actually needed.  Sometimes all I do is fight their misbehavior all day....patiently of course but it surely wears on me.

On a happier note.  I have finished piecing the squares that make up the blocks for my patriotic block swap.  I think I will need two more nights and they will be winging their way to you, Candis.  My DH wondered why I don't just keep all of them and make a quilt for us.  I wondered what fun would that be?  I'm excited to see everyone else's creations.

Mimi, I SOOO understand that. My DH said the same thing. He's still upset over the placemat exchange. LOL! That's ok. I'm working on something for him. He said he's have to approve anything that left the house but he really is just glad that I am having fun. I just love these swaps!
