Well, there are some big changes around here at casa de la Rebel.
For one, I'll be starting the EFL course on Monday. The next four weeks are going to be spent trying to learn how to teach English. Eight hours a day of class every day, and then a couple hours of homework every night. Dude! Even in college, I wasn't in class 40 hours a week. So I'm pretty well freaked out. I just can't wrap my brain around the fact that I could really really be teaching abroad in a few months.... actually living in a country I've never even visited. In theory it's really exciting. I mean, every time I hear about someone else living abroad I think it sounds awesome. So why not me?? I guess I just need to take it one step at a time, and if I decide that I don't really want to go... then I don't have to. I know that should be obvious, but I do have to remind myself every once in a while that this class is just a bit of an experiment. We'll see how it goes.
Now, in other, less dramatic news... I've started cutting out the fabric for my Valerie Wells quilt. Due to a couple mis-cuts I just barely had enough of the polka dot fabric, and not quite enough of a couple of the fat quarters to make a center square and the outside strips. In any case, I've started auditioning blocks.
It'll take some time to figure out exactly which fabrics go best together. I may even decide to pick up another couple fabrics.... depends on how all these work out.
I don't know when I'll finish this one up. I don't expect to get much quilting done over the next month, and in fact I don't know how much blogging I'll be doing. So if it goes a bit quiet... don't worry.
Well worry about how I'm doing in class... but don't worry that I've fallen off the planet or anything. ;) Wish me luck!
