Well, here she is......A-1....the first block of my Dear Jane quilt. As you can see, I haven't squared her up yet, but I'm happy to have finally gotten started.
We had a rough few days last week with "the boy"--he's been failing two of his classes. He's a smart kid, just doesn't turn in the homework that he actually does. One of his teachers told us his only problem is that he is unorganized. Well, guess what, he's not alone. I've been doing some reading and boys are simply not wired to multi-task. Boys in middle school have to be able to do that. So, we will begin to help him learn how to be organized. Oh, boy!!! This will not be an easy task for me as I am not the most organized person around. Maybe unorganized is not the right term for me...more like unscheduled. I think I could use a secretary or boss who tells me when to do what....as a stay-at-home mom with no kids home during the day, I am my own boss. No schedule here...just go where the wind blows me. And the wind is now blowing me to my studio.......
