Well, another unfulfilling week. I did sew, just about every day (and more than 30 minutes on those days that I did), and boy did I get frustrated doing it! I am stubborn, and I don't enjoy paper-piecing, but I see no way around it - these pineapples just won't happen without a foundation. So... the colour seems like it will work, and I do like the way the pattern looks, so I guess I'll just suck it up and do it. Dammit. Also, the 18" block size isn't going to work., at least I don't think so. We'll see.

I did take a stab at the pile of jeans in the laundry room, and harvested some zippers for my monster purses. Those, as I've said, will be projects for the Craft Fair in December. The dozen (I think?) santa hats I ordered from someplace online just after Christmas finally arrived last month, so they're ready to go too, for another batch of Santa handbags. The Pineapple quilt is for my niece Danielle, for Christmas, and I'll get one together for my nephew Nic as well. No pineapples, though. And definitely NOT this week.

I have a full, full roster this week, and I'm exhausted looking at it written down. We'll be relying on the crock pot and the freezer this week, for sure! The ASEP classes (Afterschool enrichment) are all mine this week and next as we work on projects for next week's Staff Appreciation events. We'll got a mural to assemble Tuesday and Wednesday this week, and milk carton flower pots to decorate and plants to put in them next week. The BRAT (Being Really Awesome Together) girls decorated candy tins for me this past week, and will assemble recipe collections next Thursday. They're all good kids, and great workers, but they need supervision, and this week and next, I'm it.
