make 196 half triangle squares, make 49 pinwheels....ummm, sorry. Just doing the math one more time. Over the last two days, I've squared up all 196 of those HTS's and as soon as I get back to my machine, I can make them into pinwheels.
Pictures to follow at 11.
Not really. But, maybe Monday.
First some unfinished business. From Wednesday: I'm not sure I know how to give a child self worth. I know what we've had to do and it's been very hard. We've had to show her what people with self worth look like to model the behavior while at the same time not destroy any value she places in herself by freaking out when she does something really bad. And, sometimes we are more successful than others...
From Thursday, I'm not sure if the pictures will stick together in the train case (that's the favorite name that a commentor called it, so I'm adopting it. i did not like calling it a make-up case) but, they were stored in a cardboard box before and I don't think this will be any worse for them than that was.
NY resolution update:
I did not lose any pounds this week. In fact, I gained one. But, I did not gain it in my middle. It went to my shoulders, and I'm good with that. I wish that instead of setting a goal to lose pounds, I'd set a goal to lose inches in my middle, which I can proudly say is still on the decline, but I didn't measure that at NY. Don't be surprised if I modify the goal, tho.
Finish projects. I did finish that log cabin quilt and then I had to start a new quilt for a baby gift. But, soon as I'm ready to take a break from this one, I'll get back to a UFO. I'm thinking that storm at sea. And, very soon, I'm going to need to get back to the indian orange peel.
Spend time with the family. So, we've been stuck together like glue lately. Next Wednesday, Rob is having his upper teeth pulled and going to a denture. He's been VERY stressed about it and that means the whole family's been stressed by it. I'll be off a couple of days to baby him (and quilt while he naps!)
As for the Minneapolis trip, my boss has assured me that I could do it in my shirtsleeves. That I'll only go outside to get into the hotel shuttle and then from the shuttle to the hotel and back again. But, I ain't buyin it. I'm having the big green coat with the fuzzy lining cleaned.
I help with MN now, so there will be other opportunities to come to Minneapolis in the near future. I'll probably try to do some quilt shopping then. I love to shop in other parts of the country. Seems to me that the shops stock different things and that some of the highest priced things down here are on sale somewhere else.
Okay, I'm off to read the second most boring document we produce in my department. 25 pages of rules and regulations. whopee
