Back to business...finally.

I can't believe that it's WEDNESDAY. Or that it's September!

So the list of things I needed to get done this weekend was nearly completed.

1. Baking: Check.

2. Tailgating: Check
3. Working on Paper/Presentation: First draft of paper is DONE, presentation is in a little rougher shape.
4. Collecting Data: Check.
5. Uber cleaning the living room: not so check, but I managed to get the "regular cleaning" done.

But I got zero sewing done. Boo!

And I didn't even make it to JoAnn to use my coupon. Double boo!

But I am finally getting back to working on my disappearing 9-patch baby quilt.

Tonight I finished all of the 9 patches....

And then I got everything all cut....

And then I HAD to stare at it all laid out for a while...

This, of course, will be taken apart and put together so that there is enough "randomness" and the colors don't touch each other as much as they do in this one. All in all, I am very happy with the progress of this and am getting excited to see it put all together.


  1. I love that you go to grad school to become an amazing chemist and in your free time you knit quilts. Oh Akon. What would the world be without you. :) Boring I tell you....boring! The quilt looks great. Is it for someone in particular?

  2. Oh, Bnewman. Thanks. Its definitely my cheap therapy.

    It is in fact for someone in particular, but its a surprise to them. :)
