1 Week down!

Well the kids started school this week and we've all made it to Friday. It's been a really good week overall. The kids like their new teachers. My 7th grader "Loves" Jr. High but hates P.E. (he's the Gamer in the family and not used to so much activity). My 5th grader is pulling together his recess basketball team. And my 2nd grader happened to get the same class as her 1st grade crush and they sit in the same group - FACING each other! The hubs isn't taking it so well.  :o)
I, on the other hand, have reached levels of productivity that I haven't reached all summer.
I've been playing with a little 'Candy'. This one is Simply Color by V and Co. LOVE!!!

I've also been playing with some Cotton Couture from Michael Miller Fabrics . These little guys came from the color card that I had (and incidentally took apart :o) 
I also managed to finished up a couple months of Bees Knees blocks.
And check out the Sewing Summit blog today where their 4 Favorites 4 Friday is featuring: ME!
Lastly- for all those that have ordered patterns either from my Etsy shop or wholesale - half of the orders that were placed while I was on vacations were shipped yesterday and the rest are going out today. And now I'm all caught up!
Better run- I'm already late for my hair appt.

I read the "FACING each other" part in an excited 2nd grade voice. LOL That's cute.

Love the color, I have a bunch of rainbow charms that I am planning on doing something with.

As a teacher who is going back to work soon it is so funny to hear the other side of the first week of school.

Aack! I love what you did with V's fabrics. I may have to pay homage to your idea by making one to. ;)
