Seeing Stars: (Non)Improv Blocks And Basic Blocks

Still playing catch up. 20180915_203203

I wasn’t feeling very “improv” myself, I guess, but the Improv Blocks came out as Basic Blocks.  Maybe I should have varied the centers somehow?   But, at least they are done.

And the Basic Blocks, too.

Nearly caught up and looking forward to next week’s final release of the Seeing Stars Quiltalong.

School Started

Yes, school started and sewing has to take a back seat.

Thursday and Friday of this past week were our annual Opening Camp where all of the students in grades 6-8 (11-14 years old, mostly) go to “school in the woods” for two days.

I know that you are thinking, “How does that work?”

Mostly, very well.

They get to know one another and build community.

Enjoy the great outdoors.

Do activities.

Create art. (Each student will have a piece in a series of large stained glass-style murals).

At the end all are tired and dirty and ready to go home.

With great memories.
