A Note From Your Organizer Smiley

I just updated the gallery with sent/received/posted pics status, so please let me know if I've missed anything.

Also, we've been a relatively quiet bunch for this round (I know my summer hasn't been as relaxed and carefree as I expected), so I just wanted to know how everyone was doing.

The send-out date is in a week. I've extended it in the past because, you know, life just gets in the way, sometimes, and I don't want people to rush to meet the deadline.

Let me know where you're at, and I can make a decision to extend if a bunch of people need it...

I got 2 amazing patches from craftylittlemonkey!

First up, a quote from Rosalind Franklin, with a DNA X-ray diffraction image in the background (stippled with Sharpie). Without her work, Watson & Crick wouldn't have been able to discern the DNA structure.



I am so happy to have this quote from her!

Next... SPUTNIK!!



It's perfect! And in Russian, too Smiley

The edges for the patches are super neat and square (or rectangular). I am impressed!

Thanks so much, craftylittlemonkey!

I just updated the gallery with sent/received/posted pics status. If I missed something, please let me know!

I made a dash up to school today to try and catch my principal to talk to him about the upcoming year. Still no definitive answer, but A) I do have a job, B) Most of my co-workers still have jobs, C) I should be teaching science, D) I won't have 40 kids per class. So, it's really just the grade level that I don't know and I'll just have to relax on that for now.
Which means that tonight, since it is not hot today, it will be a good night to press all of the fabric scraps that I have (How fun is it to stuff a bag of scraps!?! Not so much fun to press them, however... ) so I can start cutting things.

Whew!

So far, this gallery is off to a great start! So many beautiful and fun fabrics! And, glow-in-the-dark stars? I am going to dig that square out and check it out Grin

I have received two VERY generous packages of squares from quaggy and Amazon_warrior!

First up- from quaggy:



The squares are square, but the blanket underneath them wasn't flat, so they look distorted. I really like the flower squares that match but are in different colorways, plus the ones with the circles and the overlapping rectangle-y shapes. And the leaf one. So many great fabrics!


And, from Amazon_warrior:



There are a couple of science-y fabrics in here that I really like (one has DNA!), there are more circles (in different colorways), and for some reason I can't put my finger on, I love the one with the little carrots!


Thanks for such a great assortment of fabrics, ladies!

I got my package, Amazon_warrior! And, it arrived without mishap. Smiley

I got home later than I expected yesterday and today, so I'll post my photos tomorrow.

After a fabric shopping trip today- I needed 2 specific things but came home with more than everyone else, combined, I think- I have amassed a very large collection of fabric and scraps for this round... I just gathered it all together and I didn't realize I had accumulated quite so much Smiley

I think I'll be cutting a bunch tomorrow!

So, my summer has been unexpectedly stressful, but some news yesterday helped to ease it a little bit. My crafting mojo has been a bit overwhelmed, but I'm hoping to get it back in the next day or so.  I had a mini craft day the other day and I was trying to get my July Battle finished, but ended up with a craft fail instead. I should be able to turn it into something else (and fit a prompt) so, hopefully, all is not lost.

Taking a fabric shopping trip with my mom, aunt, and sister tomorrow, so I'm hoping it will get me back in the crafty mood!

I haven't checked my mail today, but I'm going to get pictures posted after I get back from a family reunion of the females (cousins and aunts) on one side of my family.

I've been totally distracted by a fiscal nightmare in my school district, so I have a lot of catching up to do (in many areas of my life). Fortunately, my upcoming school year doesn't sound quite as dismal as it was 2 days ago, so the chaos in my brain has calmed a bit, and I can focus on creativity. I'm out of town for two days, then I can focus on my patches! Ideas are solid, it's just the making that I need to do.
