Stitched Crop Circles, Part 5

As promised, here is a current photo of the "little" stitched crop circles quilt. The center, the actual stitched crop circles piece, measures about 6 1/2" square. I have added some wooden beads, some glass beads, some buttons, and little french knots on the center part. I really like the french knots! I had planned to add beads where the french knots are but after sewing a couple of beads on I realized that this was not what was needed. I tried a few other things, buttons and different beads, but nothing looked right until I tried a french knot.

I've got to go to work today. I have 5 or 6 assignments to grade for my Extended Studies class. It is Basic Arithmetic Skills (MATH 095), the lowest developmental course offered at Adams State College. I have some administrative work to do for my two on campus classes. Then I will help students with any questions they may have.

Before I began working on campus I tried to grade my MATH 095 assignments within 24 hours of receiving them. Once I started working on campus, this policy was taking up too much of my time. I get paid very little per student considering how much time it takes for me to grade their assignments and exams. I realized that I really couldn't afford to continue grading things within 24 hours of receiving them anymore. How sad is that! I'm glad to have a job (some would say "lucky" considering the current economic situation) and any money in addition to my husband's salary is helpful. I just wish that Adams State valued it's adjunct faculty more than they currently do.
