Wow-what a marathon day! I'm happy to report that some writing got done - not as much as I would have liked, but enough to keep the class happy and get them started on the homework. Three of four presentations are done, and one was presented last night - I'll post the show and tell tomorrow. One more still needs a bit of work - I have until 1 PM today to get that done. WAIT - I have two presentations between now and then! Oh well - I can make it work.
I have to say that it's going to be very nice to sew during the Virtual Retreat tonight and NOT have to stop and take pictures of what I'm sewing! One intense day of that is enough for me for the moment! Let's see - I sewed about 20 different blocks - well, I had to select fabrics and cut the blocks. Then sew them together—nothing like waiting until the last day to do that. Next month, I shall try to get it done a wee bit before. All the homework except one person is submitted and included in the presentations.
I heard them say on the radio this morning that people are tired of Zoom. I'm not. Zoom is a fun way to pass along this information to the students, and the format will stay - at least as long as the students keep coming!!!
I managed to get my two walks in yesterday despite the time constraints. I needed that time to relax my brain and to think of what I was missing! I'll be doing the same today.
So as I went for a walk with the girls, I noticed that BOTH houses for sale are SOLD. They were listed on Tuesday?? Sold by Friday morning. I have a feeling that both were priced low to get a bidding war happening. I'm not sure how much they sold for - Mary sent me a web page where I can find that information, but no time right now to figure it out. I'm curious how much over asking they went for! Sometimes, they put that on the sign, SOLD over Asking, but I didn't see that mentioned on the signs.

|The creek is quite deep at this point|
|More ruts cut into the path|

|My walking distance to date for 2021|
|Lots of lint in the feed teeth|
|My half-square triangles I sewed|
|Which machine to choose???|
Let's hope the table is strong enough to support both of them for today!
