Pumpkin Farm and more....

This week has been over the top at work....If you think the end of the year in a first grade classroom is crazy,...it is! We are "x-ing" the days off at this point~~

I did put a few finishing stitches in my ongoing BBD AotH project...

I went ahead and personalized this block with my MIL's maiden name to honor all of my DH's aunts and uncles that we have such fond memories of....All but 1 aunt has passed away but we still have memories of fall afternoons raking pecans in the yard and canning pumpkin for Thanksgiving pies...



I had the biggest surprise today....Myra had tucked a handmade goodie in my envelope when she returned a chart I had let her borrow.... This darling coin purse is just too cute!!




You are a genius Myra~~~

Well, I will leave you with a couple parting shots of some of "the group" from our reunion last weekend...We all had a blast and it was hard to believe we still act and look pretty much the same as we did back in college...We shared stories and tears and laughs..It truly was an amazing weekend!!!

Hope everyone has a great relaxing weekend~~

What a lovely block on your AotH! Your coin purse from Myra can be put to some other uses too; I could see you tucking some floss in there for a "portable" project. And how nice that you were able to enjoy your reunion with old friends - good for you!

My sister is a third grade teacher. She is always "underground" this time of year. It's school, school, school. It'll take a week or so after her last day to come back to life. I'm thankful for all of the dedicated teachers out there!

Pumpkin Farm is one of my favorite blocks in AotH. Your beautiful photography really shows how gorgeous it is!

Jennifer
