(Ignore those threads in that shot, I love to take care of those at the end!) I spent the day quilting, it was quite nice actually. This quilt is one of the biggest I've made yet and I'm taking this a little at a time. Episodes of Pride and Prejudice are keeping me company but also marking the hours (yes, hours) it is taking to quilt this baby. My internal clock says I just started quilting but my Pride and Prejudice clock says, Mrs. Bennet's "Oh, Mister Collins!" cry is a good two hours into the film... oy. It's then that I take a break.
I just started Maria Semple's Where'd You Go, Bernadette, after finishing Gone Girl in record time. Gone Girl was so great, I mean, so, so good. Total blindside that book, just couldn't put it down. And, I'm already loving Where'd You Go... Amazing what one can accomplish when work is not in the picture! And not a single paper has been graded during this "break". I'm quite sure I'll regret that when we finally do go back to school (rumor has it Wednesday). Until then, I'm enjoying these few moments, relishing the time that is my own and feeling good about what has been accomplished. Happy Monday everyone!
