What a wonderful week this turned out to be! We had all our festivities at school, both in assembly and in the classroom....The children were just giddy with excitement knowing yesterday was their last day!! And, I got an early Christmas present from the principal..... No teacher workday today as orginally assigned!!! So, I am done, done, done until Jan 3................YES!!!
I took a little class at Linderella's Quilt Shop the other night..... Many of you know how to sew up these cute project pouches, however, I did not....So... This is what I learned to sew and finish in the 3 hour class........
I made a small, medium and large zipper pouch....all lined.... I was really quite thrilled to finally know to sew these......might see more of these in the future!!
And, my friend Linda P has received her gift....so, I can post about it....Me and my stain along with briwax have been at it again.....Remember those card boxes that were used in Blackbird Designs earlier this year???? Well, I made Linda this box....with a slight French flair!!!
French design from GOS
Threadworx verigated red
40ct white Newcastle linen
Faded red Victorian Motto Chenille
Inside the box....lined with fabrics and her initial....
I had to hone in on my over 1 on 40ct skills....The white cotton lace and red chenille were good accents I thought..... Linda can now add this to her ever growing "red" collection.....
exchange... This was a box exchange....I stitched the Primrose Needleworks design from the Christmas issue of Just Cross Stitch 2011.....
Lastly, I would like to show you one of the absolutely best Teacher gifts I have ever received! One of the parents whose daughter is in my classroom crocheted this darling apple huggie....I had not seen one before and it is made to protect your fruit from bruising....It is genius and so darling!!! We both about fell out when we learned we both had blogs and shared the love of crafting~~Who knew??
On the side it has a small loop to wrap around the crocheted flower button....
Machine washable and suitable for apples, pears, whatever~~~
Thanks again Crissy! It is so cool to learn we are both crafters and share the passion for things handmade~~~

Okay...that's it t for me!! Got a list a mile long....So, I'm hittin' it~~~
