Technically, I have taken all the classes I need to for my masters degree. Unfortunately, there was no graduating for me this summer as I had planned due to mental exhaustion and an ailing 85 year old mom. I really admire and feel for all you ladies that have committed to taking care of a parent full time.
Back to school. I postponed my graduation until this fall because the summer load proved to be literally a LOAD. I am required to put together a virtual portfolio as the final masters project but it is on its own, separate from all classes. I would not have done the project justice so will work on it leisurely this fall along with one extra elective class since I have to be enrolled in the university at the same time. The class I will be taking is working with some of the professors on their annual fall Jan Paris Bookfest, this year held in San Antonio. I think I will have to read and blog about the guest authors' books for part of the grade but that is not a big issue.
I have spent the last two weeks sewing scrub caps for my nephew. I had promised him I would as giveaways to doctors for his medical business months ago but then had to tell him school was taking too much of my time. I have made 60 and use the black fabric from CT because it is affordable. He has bought caps off the website for $10 each and I can make them for less then $1. I can get 7 out of a yard of fabric. I figured it takes me about 15 minutes to make one from start to finish. He said I should make a website and sell them....
My first quilt project will be a dresden plate exchange I am doing with some ladies here on QWU...yippeeeee!
I still need to get my new sewing room organized better after getting into the new house. I can actually pack away most of my school stuff now and concentrate on quilting. We moved in sometime in April but isn't it sad I can't even remember. Buiding a house and moving in should stick in your mind forever...right? That just goes to show how much was stuffed in my head at one time.
I am looking forward to checking in daily again with all of you wonderful people.
