I for one cannot wait for the summer holidays to be here!
My children are all tired - especially the biggest girl, who seems to use up all her loveliness at school. I'm looking forward to six weeks where our time is our own and we can just be together.
I'm crossing my fingers and toes, at the same time as doing a sun dance, and hoping that the shifting jet stream the whole country seems a bit obsessed with will deliver the goods and bring a bit of sunshine, so we can have a few picnics and paddle our toes at the seaside without fearing they will drop off from the cold.
(To the extent that the eldest girl has been just a bit tearful and grumpy of late when the subject of the end of term comes up - which either means she is sad about leaving behind her beloved class teacher and her teaching assistant, or, worse still, that she is not looking forward to the summer holidays as much as I am.)
|Mmm... buttons. (And one even has a sparkly bit in the middle.)|
|Gathered petal big button flower|
|More twisted rosettes (made The Lazy Way)|
|Fabrics used were from the Trade Winds collection by Lily Ashbury - available at Fabric Rehab|
You would be right in suspecting from my gushy outpourings here that there will probably be a few tears shed tomorrow as school draws to a close.
So in true school assembly style, a big three cheers for the teachers. Wishing you a great summer.
