I am supposed to be writing my paper

Actually, I tried to post this a week ago but blogger was not cooperating (for 3 days!).  I got 8 of these squares and some plain gingham ones to go with.  I do have to finish two of them but I think I actually will go and get the pearl embroidery thread and do it because I love these!!  You can see the others over on my Flickr account. 



Well, I have a final I have to finish tonight and a presentation on Thursday and then I am done for now.  I get the whole summer off which I can hardly believe.  I have an enormous list of things I want to do--new work wardrobe, this chicken scratch quilt, linen quilt (hmmm, I am not even a quilter, what gives?), more covered buttons, perhaps another pop-up book, lots of apron dresses, lots of bags, moving my daughter's sewing table into my studio so she can sew with me and much more.  I will begin with a huge clean up of my studio and put piles of stuff that I must use in order.

but first I must finish school...

You made these? I'm in awe! Also pleased that you posted. And jealous of your summer off!

No I didn't make them--I found them at a thrift store. sorry, I didn't make that clear in the post.

Your chicken scratch looks great! Like Susan I tried Kerri Made's chicken scratch bookmark. Chicken scratch is addicting. Where did you find your chicken scratch patterns?
