Links I Like

Can you feel it? No?  Well, let me explain it to you.  It the tension easing up off our shoulders.  The relief that  after today the hard part is behind us and them and the oncoming summer is almost here.  Matt will be done this afternoon and then he will be a Sophomore! (gasp! How did that happen?) and Ryan will be done with his finals (yes, he has finals as a seventh grader...to prepare him for high school...there are no words on this one.) this morning and gets to slack off at school until the 21st.
While many of you have been on summer vacation mode for what seems like months to me, we don't officially start until June 21st.  Perfect timing, seeing that  it is the first day of summer after all!
We have not made many plans so I guess I should get on that.  Must make the oldest find some sort of work, even if it's just a few hours. Baseball will take up our evenings and anything in between will, hopefully, be relaxing and fun!

So onward to the weekend!  Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.  We will be celebrating by moving mulch...because that's what he wants to do. 

 In my quest to learn to sew better I came across this article.  I wonder if I have this attachment? I need to look.  Anyone know if they are standard with your machine supplies?
 We were hooked on watching Cupcake Wars for a few weeks.  Stands like this were common on the show, only on a much larger level.  I could see making one of these for a party! It looks pretty easy to do!
 You or the kids bored yet of summer vaca?  Here's a fun take on the T-shirt printing!
It's strawberry season around here!  Forget about the strawberry shortcake!  Make this and enjoy!

enjoy your weekend everyone!

oooh! I love my rolled hem foot. mine came with my first machine, but not my second. luckily I bought the same model again (a janome) so it fit fine.
I use it on sheer and really fine fabrics. it's excellent.
I didn't know you were a sewer! cool! quilts or clothing or both?

Say it isn't so that the boys are growing up so quickly. I have been reading your blog for a long time and I was just thrown back with talk of jobs and sophmores. If I know you, it is going to be an amazing summer. Can't wait to see the pics.
Loved all the links, but the strawberry vodka, had me at hello!
