Whew! I am wiped out.
Every year the company I work for has a charity day where we pick a school and volunteer our time cleaning and painting, weeding, and building. And mulching. Lots of mulch. Seems like no matter what projects are planned, there's always mulch. This year we had two truckloads of mulch delivered. That's a lot of mulch, trust me.
It's a fun day for everyone, but all the planning takes it's toll.
Well, the planning AND the hole digging, cement mixing, post leveling and plain old manual labor.
But mostly the planning. Now it's over. All over but the paperwork.
But it's always a great day, and this year the principal, parents and teachers were so appreciative and nice, it really made it all worth while. I wish we could go back to this school every year!
But now, after a couple of naps, a heating pad or two, and lots of Aleve, I can get back to the business of being me. Starting with these blocks from my vintage sheets! Woo hoo!
Or maybe off-set?
Sashing? No sashing??
I don't have my green grass sheet yet, but I did find a panel of it that I used for the centers. Did I mention that I also had curtains out of it when I was little? I really liked these sheets.
I like this one a lot...
And this one too...
I like them all! It makes me feel like I'm in a hammock.
I can't wait to find my other green sheet and finish making a million blocks!
But for now, I'll hobble down the stairs, creaking and moaning, and finish a different little project I've got going.
More on that next time!
