As some of you know, I work as a math teaching assistant in a local school district. This week we have our Spring break (usually near Easter, but this year for Passover as the two holidays were so far apart). What that means is that I don't have to get up early for 6 weekdays, but I still have two evenings of teaching my university class and one afternoon/evening of tutoring as those students go to a private school that had its break at Easter. So I am on semi-vacation. I hope to finish all my prep for my university class and have some time to craft and maybe even read. Ahhhh!
I took some pictures of the tulips at the university where I teach. Each year they have a Dutch Festival where the tulips around campus are one of the attractions. Here are some examples.
I love all the different shapes that you can see below.
These are all just on the short walk from the parking lot to my office.
Each one has a name label.
These yellow tulips reminded me of roses.
I also have some of my own tulips blooming. I absolutely love purple flowers.
Each of these have come from Easter planters that I subsequently plant in my garden.
The pink ones below will hopefully look better next year. I know they were in last year's Easter bucket. They are quite short.
I have made some progress on the pup.
I am finding the printed pattern difficult to follow some evenings. I think it is more the pattern and less my eyes as the symbols are very similar, fairly light and all are covered with the hammock lines that must be stitched at the end. Even during the day I have to take a break from looking at the pattern.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching today. I think I might work on Baker Beach a little bit. I really want to get that 4th page finished. Tomorrow I will join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are up to.
Thanks for stopping by!
