Today is the day.
The last day of school at the La Vida Academy.
Yesterday as the kids took their final exams I started to pick up my (teacher) desk and get curriculum put away.. it felt so good to close down the shop.
Tonight we have our last co-op class of the year. Then I will scoot out to the closing ceremonies for Girl Scouts.
This weekend is the piano recital and then the swim season begins on Monday.
My favorite time of year!
What plans do I have for the summer.
Well, I plan to spend a good chunk of time in my office/studio. My friend Becky and I are planning a Christmas in
July June sale. I have a ton of stuff I have made, and placed on a shelf. Crochet, fabric, jewelry, painting...its all going up for sale. And Becky, an amazing crafter and sewer (who is a lot more humble than I, and doesn't brag about her craftiness) will also be pawning her wares.
We plan to make it Open House style...with coffee, tea and cupcakes.
More details to come!
I would also really like to finish the quilt I started, as well as the afghan. Both are for my room. Both are at the halfway mark. I have a feeling the afghan may be a fall project. It's a little too cozy to sit under all that yarn right now.
While I am talking about blankets, I think I may have an obsession. I found this chenille blanket at an antique shop a couple weeks ago.
It's amazing. Beautiful. Nearly perfect.
I have no idea what to do with it.
The Mister said it looks like an old-lady blanket... but I love it. I think....
