Lovely Weekend

Sunday was just beautiful weather wise. It was so warm and sunny. Unfortunately, oldest daughter had to study - what better place to study than outside!! Warm, sunny weather makes AP Chem much more palatable!!
Studying and beading.
Reading - her VERY favorite past time!
I was cleaning and working on a class quilt to be auctioned off at our school auction. The kids came in and dragged me outside to be with them. Boy am I glad I went!! It was so very relaxing to just sit and crochet at the little table they brought out there for me. Hanging out with the girls in the sun was the best thing I could have done! Laundry, dishes, floors, and fabric cutting could all wait..... These was R.E.L.A.X.I.N.G. to be done :o)
Working between beading and writing a story. She said her ideas come to her more freely whens she is working on something else. Like mother, like daughter :o)
More Chem - poor girl
7 more hexis - 28 in all
7 more fish. Last week I laid them all out on the table. Well, not all of them, there were too many. I started arranging them in rows and discovered that I now have 140 fish. Only 40 more to knit less these 7. WOO HOO!!! If I keep up with these Tuesday Tallies, I could be done with the knitting in about 6 more weeks- I just can't believe it!
7 more bear pieces :o) Eyes, nose, parts of ears and face. I had a really hard time with that nose and it is not done as the pattern calls for. I just couldn't figure it out. After a few hours and more rip outs than I could count, I just fudged it and made my own nose square. I might go back in the future and try to make it again, but for now I am happy with this one.

Head on over to Carole's for more Tuesday Tallies.

Those projects are coming along great, aren't they! Love the little bear pieces. x

What fabulous projects, I think it's a brilliant idea to have several little things to make each day, it would keep everything so fresh.

Wow, everything looks great! What a great weekend you had. It seems so strange to see people sitting outside in shorts, while it's absolutely freezing up here :)

That't alot of progress, where do you find the time. I love all your projects but the fish are so different so I can't wait to see them finished. Looking forward to seeing your progress next week :)

How nice to get out in the sunshine, it's so cold here today I don't want to think about doing the school run later (up until now we've had a really mild winter, so it's been a real shock!)

Love your projects, especially the fish, I'm guessing they tessellate? The bear is clever too....sometimes it's better to walk away from something and then it suddenly makes sense.

What a lovely post to read - and great projects.
Enjoy the sun, Judy x

How delightful! Time in the sun AND time with the girls relaxing. I'm sure it will be one of their fond memories with you.

Can't wait to see the finished projects :)
