Counting down the days left in summer vacation. 5 more days until preplanning starts. Yikes! Summer goes so fast. While soaking up the last few hours like a sponge, I am spending some quality time with my sewing machine. The output level isn't high, but I am enjoying playing with scraps and chipping away at lots of ongoing projects.
I was so happy with the way the batik stars turned out that I wanted to make one for myself. This one will have sampler blocks in the star centers though. It probably won't be started until the new year, but it is fun to plan ahead.
We've done school supply shopping, and clothes shopping and new shoe shopping. Yesterday we stocked up on groceries. The kids have even been helping with a bit of organization and cleaning. Not too much though, it is almost the end of their vacation too. Just a couple of doctors appointments to finish off the summer. Big sigh, counting down reluctantly.
