Another month is winding down. I have LOTS of tiny nine patches and a slew of blue crumb blocks done. They are all nicely put away in my shiny clean sewing room though, so no photos to share. How about you? Lots of pretty blue projects to brag about? Use misterlinky below to post a link.

Chaos surrounds, but my own tiny sphere remains comparatively stable. Just 9 more days in what has been a too eventful school year. Not everyone will be coming back next fall and the workload for those of us who managed to keep our jobs will be greatly increased. Similar reorganization are underway at my husbands company as well and he came home yesterday with a different job than he had started the day with. Big sigh. I guess having a job at all is something to be thankful for when security is escorting people from the building.
Yesterday was Anna's birthday and she wanted too go out to Olive Garden for dinner. We saw this car as we walked out and it made me laugh. My car was not quite as scary as this before it got power washed this weekend, but love bug season is in full swing.

After reading Amy's latest post with pictures of SNOW in - in May - I couldn't resist this quick update as I take a break from sewing to watch the kids swim. Finally had to break down and turn on the air-- though with the rain we've had lately it hasn't been too hot. Sewing madly away at blue crumbs and hoping to dig out some pink for a new chemo quilt for Mom. For now though, just making sure nobody drowns.
I can't remember the last time I was so happy to see a weekend! After the marathon of study sessions that was last weekend I am due for a little down time. Things really are starting to wind down. My little guys at school have already taken the end of course exam mandated by the state for graduation. The bigger kids have just one week until the advanced placement exam that will determine whether or not they get college credit for my course. No pressure though. AP exams in general start on Monday with Chemistry, Psychology and Environmental Science. Kids will be in and out for the next two weeks depending on which courses they are taking. There is not much more to be done about all of that though, which means I will try to enjoy a little blue scrap time before starting the clean-up process for company coming up. I am afraid I will be losing my sewing room for a while. Not sure if I can set up in the dining room on a temporary basis or just find some handwork to keep me busy. Today though, will be all about the blue. First up is sorting, by then, inspiration will have taken over. I've already started to see blue popping up all over, so use the linky below to share your beginnings of the blue month.

If it seems that I have been absent from my blog lately, it is because life got in the way. The only reason that Dear Jane blocks are popping up is that they were finished long ago. The end of the year rush is in full swing at school. With three full weeks left in the year, we have already taken the end of course exam and covered all the required curriculum for AP. Those both needed weekend review sessions which left me ready for the weekend on Tuesday. Last week I flew up to Atlanta to visit with Mom and was able to go with her to meet with the oncologist. It was the second time I had missed school in two weeks which is never a popular choice when exams are near. So if it seems that I am noticeably absent from my own challenge, bear with me for just a bit longer while I dig myself out and search for the light at the end of the tunnel.
