Sewing and Haiti

Real productive evening last night - got four squares pieced of what will be a lap-size Shoo Fly quilt and finished the binding on Coffee Cats wallhanging for the breakfast nook. I even got a headstart on eight more squares for the Shoo Fly before I drove to work this morning. It'll be nice to work on that tomorrow whilst attacking the laundry. Do I know how to live on my days off or what? LOL

SIL returned from Haiti and posted on her blog. Her experiences were both thrilling and heartbreaking. Here's the link if you want to check it out:

She wants to return to Haiti in May and October. What a blessing to be able to use your talents to really help people!

Andrea and I are going to the College Fair at her high school tonight. It just does not seem possible that she's already into that time! She's not sure what career/major to select. The important thing is that she has real choices. She's so artistically talented, loves tutoring younger students and has a wonderful caring nature about her. There's a lot of areas she could investigate. Tattoo Boy's in the DAAP program at UC and is loving it - so that may influence her a bit toward an art major. At any rate, it'll be interesting to hear what the college reps tell her.
