I cut what I hope is all the fabric for my next two quilts and tomorrow I’ll start sewing.  Then I finished my puzzle, the first 2000 piece puzzle that I’ve done.  It was quite challenging because there weren’t a lot of different colors, and I’ve been working on it for six weeks, but it was definitely worth the effort.  I have now started a 1000 piece puzzle which is shaped like an otter, which is in fact the subject of the puzzle.  There are pieces with no tabs, so it isn’t interlocking and the edge pieces are far from obvious, but it has a lot of bright colors and I think it will be great fun.  For the first time, I’ve taken all the pieces out of the box right away, so we’ll see how that goes.  Another student signed up for a tutoring slot.  I believe there is only one more student who has expressed an interest in working with me, but I don’t know whether or not she will.  At the moment I have 7 students from Student Link and 2 from Vashon High School.  Most of these have signed on for two hours/week, so I definitely have a much fuller schedule than I did last year.  We’ll see how it goes.
