Not a lot of sewing has gone on at my house lately. Last weekend was Anna's sleepover party, this weekend was the Girl Scout sleepover party. It feels a bit as if we have opened a hotel for 9 and 10 year old girls.

We had all sorts of badge activities planned, but the girls just wanted to swim. We definitely got the swimming badge well under control! Dinner was Tacos in a bag with ice cream in a bag for dessert. Breakfast was pancakes and muffins in a bag. (I guess you could say we had it all in the bag:). We did do some badge work after swimming and before the movie, so I guess we were somewhat productive. Three girls were fast asleep before the movie was over and the rest spent the wee hours of the morning chattering away in the toy room. This morning brought more swimming and they were all out the front door by 10. Now I'm in need of a nap and a visit from a cleaning lady. She was just here on Thursday, so I guess I'll be the cleaning lady today, right after my nap that is.

I've had an occasional odd moment to putter in the sewing room. I worked on a pattern for a water bottle cozy before graduation yesterday, and on Friday I snuck in and did some cutting and organizing of happy block kits. Nothing photo worthy unfortunately. I did get my Things Quilters Say fabric panel in the mail, so I should be able to get that quilt moving along soon enough.

Monday is the last full day of school for me. Tuesday starts finals and those days are early release for everyone. I've been in massive cleaning and organization mode at school, getting prepared for moving into my new classroom! I don't want to seem too anxious, so I am waiting patiently for the current resident to pack up her belongings before I settle myself in and find a home for my stapler and my tape dispenser. I get so much joy out of the little things in life.

I hope everyone is doing well, I've had time to read all my usual blogs, but not much time to comment. Just one more week and I'll have time oozing out of my ears -- comparatively anyway.

As a young girl, I used to love sleepovers, so it was fun looking at the pics.
