As of noon today, I am on summer break, and I am a very happy camper.

See?


thumbs up for summer break!

I love summer for so many reasons. I love the flowers that grow in my garden. I love Fourth of July picnics, parades and fireworks. I love going swimming on hot days. But more than all of that I love sewing as much as I want, all day long. I feel like for two and a half months out of my year, I get to live my dream of being a full time quilter and crafter. It’s bliss, and it’s what I look forward to all year long.

In fact, in only took about 10 minutes this afternoon to get started.


new project

Bring on the new projects, the iced tea, the fresh blueberries, the day lilies that grow in my yard. Bring on my most happy time of the year.

3 Thoughts on “the best time of year

  1. You must be a teacher, too! I was “free” at 12:31 pm on May 28th. Someone asked me how long it takes to decompress and get in the vacation mode. I figure about a minute :)
    Being a teacher ROCKS!

  2. oh, lucky you! i wish i had summers off. also really liking the look of those squares – those are just the colours i am loving right now.

  3. Wouldn’t it just be great not to work and to sew and craft all day long!! OMG! It’s my dream. The thing I hate about summer, however, is there is too much gardening to do and too many other fun things that seem to take me away from sewing. I do know the word “bored” never slips into my vocabulary! Have a fun summer and I love your quilt!
