Greetings from the CTLT at Iowa State University!
I can’t believe that I am a SENIOR and this is the first time I have been here! It is a wonderful world of computers both Mac and PC, laminators, binders, and every other technology source a future teacher could want or need.
The Internet at my apartment is touch-and-go so I am taking advantage of this awesome lab to update you on my weekend progress. Weekends like this make me so happy to be a server! I wake up when I want and craft until I need to leave for work. It is wonderful!
This weekend I…
Finished cutting out my Texas Braid quilt as part of my Attack the Stash initiative, and,
Depleted my brushed cotton scraps by piecing a binding and back for this quilt.
Despite requiring nearly 2,700 pieces, my Texas braid quilt barely made a dent in my darks collection. I started to piece it together as a leaders and enders project while working with my brushed cottons and now have a nice little pile ready to press. My brushed cotton quilt is ready to send home to my mom for her to quilt.
I tried to use her mid-arm quilter and hated it. I enjoy precision work like hand knitting, embroidery, or sewing with my little machine. The power of that quilter is way too overwhelming and I cannot get the results I want.
Luckily for me, my mom hates knitting and crochet as much as I hate that quilter. Come back tomorrow to find out how I am bribing her to do the quilting.
