School's out for Summer!!!!!!!

Thursday was the last day for students a teachers in NYC. As much as I love the kids and my work I am SO glad to be out for the summer. I have not blogged in the longest time because --- well no real reason--- I just didn't! I read blogs every day and I always mean to blog then I get tired and something else calls me away.

I've been doing lots of quilting and some knitting but really more paperwork from school and yard work and cleaning etc. I spent part of the weekend at the beach with my family and celebrated getting out of another school year of Friday by getting a manicure and a green tea pedicure! What a luxury!

I taught myself how to do a new heel from Wendy Knits and have been playing around with making hexagons from Jelly roll strips. As a math teacher this really interests me. I think I've learned more about angles from quilting and molding then any class!

Well I'm off to do some dinner stuff then I am going to knit and hopefully finish one sleeve of Mr Green Jeans in red start the last sleeve!

Oh Frances, I hope you enjoy this summer to the FULLEST!!!! I tell you, people who can teach other people's kids are a special breed and a breed apart! And math? Argh!!! I shudder at the thought of it....

I don't know if I could sit still long enough to knit anymore. I used to love to do all the Irish designs with cables and, I am not sure I could even follow the patterns!

Here's wishing you a terrific summer with lots of sunny days and pretty flowers!!!!
