Winter 9 patch and AWESOME Ebay find!!!

This has been the longest week and it is only Wednesday!!!!  I had to tutor afterschool on Monday and didn't get home until after 6:00.  Tuesday-Thursday this week I am in class afterschool from 4 to 7 each night. This is for learning holds to control an out of control student.  Tonight I learned how to break a hold when a student grabs my wrist, tries to choke me, decide to kick me or grab a handful of hair!!!  Believe it or not, this does happen in some classrooms. 

I haven't been able to stitch as much as I would like.  This is the Winter 9 patch that I am working on this week.  As you can see, I only have 3 squares to complete on this one. I do hope I can finish it soon!

I found an Awesome deal on Ebay the other day!!!!  I have been looking for a great deal on 18 count fabric by the yard because I have several HUGE charts I would like to kit up and start.  Since most of my BAPS require the entire space to be filled, then the color of the aida didn't matter.    I found 36' x 60' beige aida for $6.95 a yard!!!!!  I bought 5 yards of it and now I am set with aida for a few big projects!!!  Actually, the seller was selling one yard in an auction format so I emailed her to find out if she would just sell me 5 yards and she agreed!!!

The plan is that I will work on my UFO stack until I get out of school for summer in May.  Then I am going to start new projects and a new rotation system!  Hopefully, I can make myself not freak out about not finishing my HUGE projects before I start a new one.  So I am going to rotate, new BAP, new small chart, UFO, etc....I am going to join my friends who have 10 to 20 projects in a rotation!!! This just means more UFO's for me!!! HEE HEE
