Another Swap? I couldn't resist!

It's true! I gave in! I signed up for another Disappearing 9 Patch Swap, this time over at Jane's Fabrics and Quilts! Click HERE or on the button below if you want to sign up too...there's still room!

Jane's Disappearing 9 Patch Swap

Jane was clever about this swap. She allowed everyone to vote on the block and the colors. So the D9P block won, and the color combination will be Red and Aqua! What a combination! This will definitely mean searching out a good fabric shop and doing a little shopping! Maybe that's why I couldn't resist signing up for this one...I needed an excuse to hunt down a fabric shop!

Anyway, that's the latest thing added to my to-do list. My knee seems to have fixed itself after two days of rest, ice and elevation and two nights of some wonderful something that my doctor prescribed. I'm still curious as to what caused such pain though, so I think I might just keep the appointment with the orthopedic specialist and see what she says. But I am so thankful to be mobile again and am working on getting caught up with projects to share here at Hooked On Needles.

The school schedule is in full swing here as well. My oldest, Elizabeth, has started college and loves it. She was not able to complete her Babette before beginning her classes, but she only has a few more rounds of the border. She is hoping this long weekend will provide her with enough free time to get it done.

My little first grader Sean loves school and talks non-stop all the way home from school every day about the fun he had. The horn worm that I shared from my garden the other day is now a science project in his classroom. It will be interesting to see if the wasps mature. I'm just glad I won't be there to see it if it happens!

Grace, my 4 year old, is finding all kinds of fun and creative ways to entertain herself during the day while her best friend and play buddy is at school. It's really quite cute.

Do you welcome the routine of the school year in your household? What kinds of things do you look forward to once the summer comes to an end and the pace changes? Football season, cool weather, apple picking, more time for handwork, having a schedule...these are all things I like about it. How about you?

Happy Stitching!
