Summer vacation :)

Look what I got in the mail!!! A total surprise from the creative chicks :) A super useful library bag, a beautiful apron and a big pile of gorgeous scraps!!! Thank you! Thank you so much :D

Among the scraps are some Disney Princess squares, they will be perfect for Violas quilt, however, I just had to use one right away, and I put it into Beths purple 8two8 block.
I haven't done a lot of sewing, I have spent a lot of time adjusting to working vs studying. I have managed to sew my contribution to Amandas SewConnected2 quilt. A wonky pinwheel:
I like the fabrics she chose so much, and the embroideries are so cute :)

So...instead of in front of my sewing machine, this is where I spend my days:
at the office! I am enjoying my job, I definately prefer working to studying!

I have the next 2 weeks off, the kids have their summer vacation too, so we are going to my parents' house for a while. Summer is just a little more fun when you have a lawn to play on!

I'm so glad to hear you are enjoying your job - settling into working instead of studying can be quite an adjustment!
Enjoy your summer hols - I'm sure your sewing mojo will return once you settle into everyday life.

I agree.. a yard and summer just go together!

When I was working and my kids were little, I don't think I sewed a thing. But lots of people do I know. You pick it right back up when you want to. :-)

Yay!! Summer vacation is so delightful. I hope you have a wonderful time. As much as you like your job, time away with the kids is priceless. :>} Look how much you've accomplished since last summer! You did an amazing amount of sewing for Christmas, you finished your studies, started your job, and millions of other things I don't know anything about. Good for you!
