That long break allowed me to discuss about half retirement with the school : my schedule has been quite lightened, as I 'm now teaching 12 hours a week (5 on Mondays, and 7 on Thursdays), and that for the 5 coming years...when I'll become fully retired. Who's complaining ? This is really what I needed : a lot of time for my family (and my quilting !), and still some professional projects...... All in all, I'm very, very pleased : I knew that ageing would bring some advantages ! LOL...
Aaaah, good news about my quilting too :
Applique Designs challenge : I made 2 additional blocks, and prepared 2 other ones.
"Spring is here" stitchery quilt : I finished the first block and prepared the second one.
Note : you may see some "bubbles" on my blocks : these are due to the fact that I iron them on freezer paper, to prevent them from fraying until final assembly (good tip, isn't it ?)....
I also basted Laura's African quilt, and bought some nice wooden buttons to tie it...
On another subject, I have noticed that I can't anylonger leave a comment on some blogs, what a pity ! Be sure, that I read you,and admire your work anyway !
- Nice plans for the future.
- My students missed me...
- A new vanilla scented candle, in the sitting-room.
- The fire, burning in the chimney
- TGIF !
