What have I been Doing?

I'm still here, just can't believe it has been so long since I last blogged. So what have I been up to? A little bit of sewing, and quite a bit of yard work. Yesterday I pulled the two silcocks(out door faucets) off the house and had hoped to repair them myself, but when I went to get parts the guy at the plumbing supply store said he could do it I let him. But hey ,I took them off the house and put them back on all by myself.  I've been planting flowers, weeding, and tearing down a garden. I'm embarrassed to say that I let two of my garden get overgrown...
now it looks like this...
there are still a few things  I have to move but I'm unsure where they are going to go.
Next project....
this is going to be a project! First thing I had to do was get rid of the red ants, they bite!
I'll be tackling this mess tomorrow and hope to have it done by Friday. I'll be moving a few things but mostly it will be thinning weeds our and moving some lilies. I don't really know how this garden got so bad... just spent a lot of times running for soccer, taking classes other things. Still that's no excuse.
So stay tuned I'll show pictures of the finished product soon.  I'll also show pictures of my sewing soon.

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?

Oh Yes He Did!

My one and only child graduated Sunday. Yay! It's been quite a journey, the past week was filled with banquets, awards, class trips, a party on Saturday and a graduation on Sunday in the midst of tornado warnings ( extremely unusual in this neck of the woods).

It was a great week, a lot of work but so worth it.
