Sunday’s are my lesson planning days. I have master lesson plans written for each subject, but every week I print out a copy of what each child will accomplish and a copy for me. So today is my get the lessons together day.
And I am behind once again on the laundry. My excuse is that it has been so hot that I am doing good if I get only one load done in a day and that is not nearly enough to keep us ahead of the mountain.
After I accomplish my work I want to get 5 squares crocheted for the share a square program. It’s a program where you crochet 6 inch squares and send them in. Then they construct afghans for cancer children with them. It’s a really great program and a wonderful way to declutter your yarn scraps with a purpose. I am hoping to make 5 each day for the next 10 days so that I can make the first deadline which is in August (the 26th I think).
I am also making 12 inch squares with my yarn leftovers and I will assemle them into a random crazy quilt type afghan once I have enough of them. And also with my yarn scraps I plan to make some cube type laundry bag/basket thingies. I found the pattern for those in Crochet Today magazine. My goal for this year is to seriously declutter my yarn stash which consists mostly of scraps leftover from gifts that I have made.
I would love to have my yarn stash completely decluttered by the end of the year. And have some cool projects to show for it 🙂 .
I have also been making scarves for the special olympics. I don’t know how many I will get made this year, but I have 6 done so far.
Well, enough from me for today. Hopefully I can locate my camera and take some pics of the things as I get them finished. I’m sure the kids know where it is. They always know where everything is.
