It's good to be back, though I do feel overwhelmed with all I need to catch up on in blogland. I haven't checked out my blog friends in so long, I feel like I'm out of touch with the world ;p
But I'll take baby steps and start with tiny posts of things I need to share on my own blog. Here are two teacher gifts I made for the end of the school year....
The first was for my youngest daughter's 6th grade teacher. I normally stop with gifts at elementary school, because by middle and high school, they just have too many teachers for me to give to them all. But my daughter was especially fond of this teacher, so we made her a quilted name banner to hang in her room. I guess she really liked it because she took it around to all the other teacher's rooms to show it off, with my daughter in tow. She told her it was the best thing she had received in her 22 years of teaching :) You can't really tell in the pic, but it was quite large, close to 4feet long.
And then I made this small lap/car quilt for another favorite teacher. She taught my 3rd grader this year and she had my 2 daughter's before him(she actually asks for my kids to be in her class, which they really aren't supposed to do, shhhh!)
Right now I'm in the process of drawing patterns for a special gift for a soon to be 4yr old girl who's party is on Saturday. My 2nd youngest son is invited to her party. I'll share the finished gift in another post. Crossing my fingers that it comes out as cute as it is in my head!
Have a lovely day,
Ps, I've tried to reply to comments via email, but I don't think it goes through. Does blogger not work like typepad?
