Random: Weekending

Banana pudding bread was made bright early this morning. While it was in the oven our home smelled like cinnamon and sugar! I made myself a cup of Saturday coffee { extra dark and used the largest cup I have}.  I can't tell you how much I love baking! It is almost another way of quilting, only baking is adding ingredients, but sewing needs some subtractions and addition through the process.

I wasn't able to do much sewing this week unlit this afternoon! When I came home this week all I had in mind was sit and drink lots tea. S had a lot to share since school started and I listened.  She is hoping to bring some homework home, but first week of school likely was organizing and getting everyone ready! 

The class I taught is a 2 and half hours course. I stood and walked a lot during the class time. After a nice summer break my legs got really lazy! It will take me another week or two to get adjust! It looks like I have a small class this year, which would allow me to get to know everyone better! I have learned students are more engaged if they are encouraged or given positive advices throughout the semester.

I have been saving these plastic spools. I am not sure what to do with them! Do you keep your empty spools as record of your process in sewing? or do you throw them away? I have threw a lot away, but not this year! I pulled them out this morning and set them on the able. I have a little cleaning time here. Everything is not in its place. The fabric corner I had became fabric mountain. It is crazy that I had to asked S where is my rotary cutter twice when it was under a little stash fabric in front of me. 

Somehow I am not very eager to start  new projects. I would like to finish a few w.i.p projects first. I have few quilts in mind and few little projects in mind. With my last year's study I will need to take it easy! I like to let you know that I won't be able to blog as much as I like. Majority of the time will be spend in the school studio and focus on my MFA exhibition that's coming up in less than 6 months. For the exhibition, I have two completed pieces, three pieces in progress and one  piece still is unknown. I like to show you these works, but they cannot shown in the public before the exhibition.

S and I are enjoying sweet tea and dark chocolate in this early Fall Saturday afternoon..  Soon will be pumpkin soup and bread time!



  1. I don't save spools, but you always inspire me so I will wait and see what you make

  2. Oh my goodness, your banana bread pudding looks so delicious! I also save my thread spools! Last year I donated them all to my girls kindergarten teacher and the class made the most adorable Christmas ornaments with them! They are perfect for kids to make crafts with!
