School's Out and a Finish

Yay! I'm officially out for the summer. Today was my first free day, I planned to sleep in, wouldn't you know it, Mr. Shoofly  called me at 7:15! That didn't stop me, oh no... I went right back to bed and stayed there until 9:00 am. I puttered around the house for a bit, made breakfast for the Boy, caught up with my blog reading, and that's about it. Tonight I plan on cutting some fabric for the memory quilt and will mail those out tomorrow. Life is good :^) For those of you who are teachers you understand how crazy- busy the end of the year is, throw in a graduation, a retirement party, a moving on ceremony and I just haven't had a whole lot of time for myself. I did manage to finish the Modify Tradition Mini Swap.

Apologies for the poor quality pictures they don't do the quilt justice, I took them at 6:00 a.m.yesterday it was  a misty morning. This was inspired by a blue and white antique quilt recently I spied in a  LQS .  The block has two names, English Wedding Ring and Crown of Thorns is that kind of and Oxymoron?
