Catchin' up

Okay---lightening speed post coming! I have 10 minutes before I'll be ordered to bed by DH!

So....great weekend! You know about Saturday. Sunday and today were relaxing at the farm, INSIDE, staying away from those nasty RagWeed plants!!! This allowed me to find the perfect pattern for BIL's C'mas quilt....more to come later on that.

Today----whew! FULL! Left farm at 11:00, arrived home at 12:45. Ate pizza, spent 2 hours going through Cassie's closet with her, trying on EVERY piece of clothing, putting away what doesn't fit, and organizing what does. Spent 1 hour picking up Candace's and Cailtyn's room and making their bunk beds.

Amidst all of this, washed, dried and folded three loads of clothes; packed two school bags, putting together pencil boxes and a spare change of clothes for Caitlyn (pre-schooler) :0)

THEN...finally, at 4:30, I was able to head downstairs to work on OTR#2 for a bit-----cutting more 2" plaid strips from the 2.5" strips I had already cut. I didn't start sewing though until after the kids were in bed (8:00), after supper at 5:30, bath at 6:30, teeth and story at 7:30.

So, from 8:00-8:30, I finished cutting strips AND cutting ALL 388 HSTs (okay...if I counted correctly, I cut 390 just to be safe.) So---for about 30 minutes, I started mindlessly piecing the HSTs together. I'm 200 down with 190 left to pick up with tomorrow night.

BUT---during that mindless time, a thought struck me for tomorrow's first day of school. I always want to start the year off FUN and NOT BORING WITH ALL THOSE RULES!! (*ugh*)
Well...I had completely forgotten about "Mathemagic.!!!!" I am wrapping up with 2 minutes left before 10:00 (when DH is ordering me to bed). I'm off to do a quick google on Mathemagic--------if you wish, you can too. Otherwise, I'll touch base again tomorrow evening with a link (Oh, and PICS will come too)
