Winter 9-patch and spring break wrap up!!!

Who-HOOOOO!!! I have another finish to show off!  I worked on my seasonal 9 patch and I finished the Winter Section!!!  As you can see, I just have 2 more boxes to stitch in the Summer section and it will be completely finished!!!! 

So this project is being put away, because a HAED is calling my name.  I am going to work on my Wintery Heirloom project.  I loved all the responses I received about my stitchers guilt.  I am going to put my 7 UFO"s in a 4 day rotation until School is out at the end of May.  Then I will start adding a new project here and there.

Spring Break is over and I have to go back to work on Monday.  I set out some goals...lets see how  I did:

1. Go get my taxes done
Got the notice from the state Dept.  about our refund!

2. Finish 2 houses in my Victorian Village
Finished Ice Cream Parlor and Mercantile

3. Take all the recycling to the recycling center
You saw the garage photos!!!

4. enter 2 binders of charts into my excel program
Actually entered all my charts that I know of...still gotta look in the nooks and crannies.

5.  Go in my Classroom and finish my Annual Review Conference paperwork 
(each conference takes about 2 hours to plan and I have 13 of them!!!!)

I went in and worked for about 5 hours, finished my conferences, failure notices, graded all papers and I can now see the top of my desk!!

Because I worked really hard this week.... I went and had new nails put on my fingers!  I love them!!!!  The only problem? I have to learn to type and text with them....this is going to a learning experience!

Vicki I love your 9 patch project. I don't think I could put it away being so close to a finish. Your nails are beautiful. Nice color. When I had my nails on I had them a little shorter than yours and I didn't have any problems typing. How's cross stitching with them?
