First Week

I made it through the first week of the semester, and I think things are going to go good. All my professors seem pretty fair with their grading policies and the amount of work they give out. I am a tad worried about my English class because my prof has a really heavy accent, but I think it is something I can adapt to. The worst part of the semester is all the reading assignments I'm going to have to do, but hey it could be worse.

My Very First Quilt!

So I finally finished my very first quilt I have ever made. It was my dads Christmas present but I had to give it to him half way done then finish it before I went back to school for the semester. The top quilt is made out of pairs of jeans, I even left the pockets on some of the squares, and I backed it with a sheet(a trick I learned from my granny Smith). I am really excited about how it turned out. Sorry about the pictures, the photo quality isn't too great.

Messy Houses are Good for Kids

So my siblings and I have always been pretty healthy. We have never had asthma or anything like that and we would only get sick on occasion; and that RARELY happened. I stumbled upon this article today and I found out that my being messy contributed to my good health. I thought it was pretty interesting, and I've always believed a few germs are good for you.
