Well, I did it. After putting it off for quite a few months, I signed up to substitute teach. I decided that it wouldn’t hurt to make some money for my family. And if I hope to ever get a job teaching again, I’ll need to be in schools where people can see me and get to know who I am. Because, if there is one thing in life I have learned, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.
Needless to say, I am exhausted after 2 weeks of subbing and I haven’t had much time to blog. I’ve spent the last 2 weeks subbing and trying to finish my brothers birthday quilt. We spent the weekend in San Diego with him to celebrate. But, instead of having a finished quilt to give him, I spent quite a few hours pinning and sewing. I did get it done on Sunday though, just in time for his birthday.
I am pretty happy with the result. The colors go great in their house as well. It’s definitely very random and one of a kind. I wanted a very un-patterned and un-planned look for the quilt – I think I achieved that. Hopefully it is a successful look.
