I PROMISE to get the photos of Studio U to you tomorrow! It's dark up there at the moment, and so you won't see much. It's best to wait until it's light.
Mission accomplished - the magazine article was approved by the editor, although I had to scramble to get a wee bit of information to her. No problem - it's done! Already thinking about the next topic. I'll let you know when the article gets published.
The other magazine quilt is done! I didn't get a box out yesterday, but now I have two quilts to package up, so I'll be doing that today. And yes - I promised you a picture of the one that I'm gifting. I'll do that today! Hmm - a few pictures to take today.
Today is going to be about paperwork. A lot of the clubs will be starting in the next two weeks, and I need to get the distribution lists together, figure out the homework for the year, and let the students know what they can expect. I do hope to get some quilting done, but we'll see how the paperwork goes.
Oh boy -- this book - The End of October by Lawrence Wright. The one about the virus, written in 2017. Pretty scary, and well, I knew this, but the current pandemic is NOTHING when compared to the previous pandemics the world has survived. But all the talk about the virus and how it works - it's interesting. Compared to the virus in the book - our virus is nothing! The virus gets spread at Mecca during The Hajj so you can imagine what's going to happen when they shut down that city to prevent three million people from spreading it around the world. I'm right at that point!
After Monday sewing, I decided to take some time and work on that darn puzzle! I want to start another one, and well, I can't move forward until this one is done. I'm happy to report that I finished the darn sky and the trees, but not before I had to move a bunch of pieces around in the border! Yep - those pieces fit in multiple places, and that makes it tricky! All that's left is the grass and a wee bit of trees. Easy! HA!!
|Progress on the puzzle|

|All the blocks are now ready to sew together|

|Finish number two for 2021|
On that note, I'm out of here. There's so much paperwork to do, my head is spinning. But I'm going to tackle it one piece at a time. That's all I can do! And oh my - I've got an urge to purge today! I better take advantage of that while it's there!
Have a super day!!!!
