my kids, lol! There were more than usual late, with traffic lights out and debris on the roads. (Since I live so far from school, my morning at home wasn't affected as severely.)
From the classroom perspective, the worst of it was no background instrumental music that really helps the day to flow, and, there is no windows in our classroom bathrooms. It just meant being a bit creative, as the flashlight batteries were not working either :-}
At 2:30 or so, we were told we wouldn't have school today -boo-hoo- I had 2 boys literally get up and start dancing! I can remember as a child having snow days, but I do not think I've ever missed as a teacher for any reason like weather. I feel like it's a gift day for sewing!
This is Ginny's beautiful hydrangea quilt for her oldest granddaughter Ashley. It was quilted last Saturday, I'm hoping to put the binding on this weekend. The quilt was a kit, we tackled it together. Ginny wanted it to not finish square like the pattern called for, so she found some more fabric from the same line and we added length in the white butterfly print. This was the last quilt to be finished in her goal of a quilt for each grandchild.
Her next one is an I Spy, and she has started this one all by herself! I can't wait to share those, since we both are making one.
This was a square for a special someone, just wanted to share it. It was a neat block and I liked the way the prints worked together. It's in the mail, finding its way to a secret quilt gift.
Happy first year to our kids! Time flies ~
Jesse's girls. We asked for some of Jesse's shirts to make quilts for his 2 daughters and for his wife. It's still a goal to complete them before Christmas. Larry and Jerry helped to cut the shirts apart during a couple evenings in front of the tv, and I was trying to come up with a plan that would fit a special little girl.
This one is for his youngest daughter, who just turned 7. She liked Daddy's blue shirts because they are so soft. I put a gold one with them, and a couple of white shirts and fabric to extend the quilt to a good snuggle size.
The finish will have a couple of pockets from Daddy's shirts. Daddy's heart was right there under those pockets once, and it's a place she can put her hand to remember that his heart is still with her here.
