Third Quarter Blues

Our Easter break begins on April second, and I'm counting down. Until then, we have art projects preparing for Open House at the end of April.

Lydia helping with student's papers- Priceless!

April is also time for SAT's, do you remember taking those in school? Oh, and there is the school jogathon fundraiser, the Rummage sale fundraiser, the little beans to plant and pray them into growing

(you feel so bad for the little guy who's bean grows slow, or rots in the pot-!), not to mention the baby chicks that have to be here ON TIME for Open House, the Lighthouse student projects- - - welcome to Grade 2. My class theme every year is:

Always Do Your Best!

I am crunching numbers for grade averages, report cards are due soon, so that's part of the title,
"Third Quarter Blues".

The other blue part is the ongoing project, my blue kitchen sink that is not on point, so it's not quite what I was expecting.

Larry is quite taken with it, so, I am not ripping it out to suit my desire to match the flattened pinwheels.

It is up to 1080 pieces, and continuing to grow. Just thought I'd share what it is we're up to here.

Happy Quilting!


  1. Wow! Looks like you guys are quite busy. I still love that blue Kitchen Sink quilt. Someday.....I'll make one too.

  2. Someone in my quilt group showed a scrappy Kitchen Sink last week, and I fell in love with the project. I like this blue version, too! I would rather stay home and sew than go to work!

  3. So what don't you like about the pinwheels? I like this quilt, your colors are great.

    I'm glad you're feeling better!

  4. Gotta love elementary school teachers!!!

  5. What a fun classroom you have! And your quilt is coming along beautifully. Carol

  6. I am just WOWED by the kitchen sink quilt, and I know what you mean by third quarter blues. My kids just got report cards and we're almost to the time of year when you wonder when school is going to let out. My youngest is a 2nd grader and cried this morning because she didn't want to go to school. We haven't had one of those moments in a long time.

  7. I love your quilt! Keep up the good work! :0)

  8. I know what it's like to have a break off work and how we can plan to get as much done as we want. I hope you get alot done and you enjoy your time off. Take it easy too! Steph

  9. Kitchen Sink is blue but so cheery it must make you smile to see it! Glad you are feeling better and hope that continues all through your break. Enjoy!

  10. Hi Pokey, say I see blue pinwheels. Try focusing on the dark and I bet you see them too. they look like the ends are folded over to the center. yes the lighter ones are flat. I love it. Great job and continue on. an ohioan
