Summer is in full swing here...the kids and I have had a great first-week-of-summer together. We're a little bummed about having to, almost certainly, change our big summer vacay : ( Of course, we're extremely bummed about the cause of it...the oil spill. So very troubling. We have other thoughts, maybe everyone going there now since we can't go to Florida?
So anyways, I just wanted to pop in to the ole blog and say hello, catch up a bit.
Besides hanging out with my 3 little party animals ALL DAY EVERY DAY I've been up to some reading, some sewing, & some purging. The purging is actually a bit exciting for me personally as it may lead to me having a pretty wonderful sewing space sometime in the foreseeable future...yay! More on that later.
As for the sewing, I'm currently working on a few quilting bee blocks, well actually I need to get 8 made by June, which is probably not gonna happen in a timely manner. Also, making an adorable colored pencil roll for my darling niece, Berkley, from this super awesome book...

It's almost complete, but not quite. I'll share a photo or 2 next time.

In other sewing news, I've lost my mind completely and signed up for two flickr swaps...The Scrappy Pincushion Swap and The Gathered Clutch Swap. Don't tell anyone, but I've never made either of these things. But I'm always up for a sewing challenge and can always figure out pretty much anything involving sewing, so no worries!
I mentioned I've been reading. That's because I finally went to the library (after a 7 month absence) to pay my huge fine. Turned out I did not even have a fine! I have no idea what's going on with that, but whatever. So we're back to invading the library every week. I read this book to the kidlets this week and we all really enjoyed should check it out at your library.

Why can't you come to Florida?? The whole state didn't up and disappear!!!! In fact, the vast majority of our lovely beaches are open for business, or at least all the business that hasn't been scared away unnecessarily!!! Please, check again...and come on down. (At least for now, the water's fine and the sun is shining!!)

Hey FL Farm Girl : ) I'll clarify...our vacay would be to Pensacola and Destin in late July. If we could come now we would, but we can't. My parents live in Pensacola so our trip is simply postponed...lotsa Florida in our future!
