I haven't posted in ages, and I feel like such a loser. But the school year is (finally) winding down, and I'm hoping that the summer will see me more active. There's been plenty going on, including some sewing! I'm working on an Edwardian dress to wear to the Biltmore Estate next weekend, and with just a few days to go, I think I may actually finish in time!
I spent almost the entirety of spring break working on it (almost 3 full days of cutting), and I'm still not sure it'll look decent on me, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
There's lots of crafting still to be done (I haven't forgotten your prizes, aalia7, I swear), but right now, I'm flailing around in an attempt to get the rest of the school year planned out. I really only have 5 weeks left with the kids when you take into account Senior Week and the days that will be set aside for exams, so it's definitely down to the wire now. I can't wait for summer! There will be at least two trips - one to Rhode Island (with a possible side trip to Boston, eh, alabastard), and another sojourn to London to see Baconburger Frenchfryface in "Hamlet" - as well as an engagement party for my cousin and her partner and a wedding vow renewal for my parents. So many things!!
I hope that all are well. I'm not keeping up with everyone's blogs as I ought, but I am thinking of you all!

So there's January through February gone! I'm currently reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed, and I'm about halfway through, so I'll be looking for something new and engaging very soon!
This morning, I checked my work e-mail to find the following message from one of my S&D students:
