Too much work, too little craft

Today was our first day of spring quarter, and tomorrow is my first day teaching for the quarter. I needed a break from prepping my classes and realized I hadn't shared these with you.

March is my month in my quilting bee, and I selected this paper pieced circular geese block. I really enjoyed making it (more paper piecing coming soon), but I realized after I took the picture that the bottom arm of the star is a bit off. I'll rip it apart one more time!

And I took part in the Feeling Stitchy embroidered button swap. This was too fun! My partner mentioned liking science, so I stitched up these science-themed buttons.

After spending Friday night at a double feature of Back to the Future and Hot Tub Time Machine, everything in my life is 80s themed.

In return, I got this super sweet package (*ahem* the chocolate is nearly gone!!) with these adorable buttons.

Thanks, Charity!

I'm teaching my usual two classes this quarter -- one I love (although I've had to change it drastically to accommodate a doubling of enrollment) and one I dread. Guess which one I still have to prep this evening?

ooh, i'm diggin' the teal fabric in the center - it's like a double design block when you do that!

I love the block and the buttons! The buttons are carded up very nicely.

I hope you get your class prepped in time.

The colors in that block are amazing! I'm always drawn to color first and block pattern second but I think the pattern won out this time. I like how you added the teal center bit rather than keeping it white like it is in the tutorial. It really draws you into the block!

Oooh, those little science buttons are adorable! That looks like a really fun swap!

I'm spending WAYYYYY too much time on you blog today. If I miss my deadlines, I'm blaming you. I love your bee blocks. LOVE them. I saw the tutorial for it a ways back and at the time thought it was the best block I've ever seen. Until now. I love your solid aqua center. LOVE. IT!
