 Yesterday was spent blissfully putting around the sewing room doing lots of organizing and sewing up of odds and ends.  Call it a quilters version of spring cleaning.  There were lots of extra bits sitting next to the machine waiting to be sewn together.  Postage stamps, nine patches and lots of HST units came together to the first 6 chapters of Wuthering Heights on Librivox.
 Then the evening brought ironing along with Muppets in Space and Spiderman 2.  Sydney was the only kid left in the family at that point as everyone else was away at sleepovers.  Look at how cute the itty bitty nine patches are on the back.  The seams nestle just perfectly.
  Here is a freshly ironed stack of green scraps.  I need to decide which of these will go to sampler blocks and start trimming the rest to useable sizes.
I'm not sure how much sewing time there will be today.  Sydney is making birthday cupcakes for school while Anna types away at a paper for school.  The new Godzilla movie is the plan for today along with a birthday dinner and I think a double header for football.  Did I mention that there are just 8 more school days to go?  Starting to get excited about summer.

Sounds like a productive and relaxing evening. Such a pretty pile of scraps!

Your summer break starts very early but I guess you do go back earlier in the Fall as well.

Guess you do need to clean up once in a while... I try to do some, but usually that waits for the end of a quilt.
Love your little blocks.
Only 8 more days!!! You (almost) made it. It's down hill from here.

Is it a Happy birthday to you time? You have made great progress with your spring cleaning. Lots of pretty greens to play with still.

How wonderful to have a blissful day of sewing. You deserve it. Frankly, I don't know how you squeeze in as much sewing as you do during the school year. I'm sure the last day of school couldn't come soon enough.

Looks like you had a very productive and restful weekend.

Today is the last day of school for DT. I'm not sure who's happier me or her!
