Summer is here!

YES!! Summer is finally here! I missed that taste of heat and humidity, only for a few minutes though, then I decided that spring's temperatures are better! This morning I am collecting some free quilt patterns for the quilting ministry that I will be starting in August at church. My first lesson will be to make sure everyone knows how to use their sewing machines! LOL Next I will then begin teaching the ladies basic quilting terminology, 1/4inch seam, hst, 4patch units...we will make all of these. I think I would like to have each one them have a notebook that will have cardstock pages with sheet protectors so that the blocks they make can reference to. I hope that idea works.
The rest of my morning will be filled with just straighting up the house to prepare for our Sunday School bbq that is this evening. Not much house work to do, just basic stuff. I enjoy having everyone over.
This past Thursday we had a meeting with our homeschool co-op and drama group moms. The church that sponsors us, allows us to use their building is having some financial problems. They are an itsy bitsy church and we want to help them raise money to help pay for the new roof and to pay the heat bills. Winter is brutal to the heat bills! I hope all goes well with this and our fund raiser ideas do well for the church. I think it is absolutely wonderful what that church does for us, and it is not even my church, but I want to help! The fact that they open the doors to us, all denominations is absolutely fantastic!
Dawn came over yesterday and she took home all of my batting scraps. She is going to match them up and make the scraps into large battings for me!! I think this is going to be great! I have had those bags and bins of scrap batting for years, now I need to do something about it. In exchange for her doing this for me, I'm going to quilt her weaver fever quilt!
One more thought, it is time to start planning for the fall semester. Yep, I can't believe it, but before I know what will hit me fall will be here! If I don't plan for the lessons starting in July then I will not be ready for September! If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail! I don't want that hanging over me!
Well, time to get to moving with this morning's chores and of course eat breakfast.
