GoodBye to a Great Teacher

It is James' teacher last day tomorrow. She is off to find her feet has a principal. I know she will do a great job. James thinks so tooo, but he is sooo sad she is leaving.

So he asked me if I would make a special apple for the teacher for when she left. So here it is.

Fabric Apple
It is really hard when someone leaves especially for a kid. I remember a favorite teacher leaving when I was at school. I was never going there again until she came back.... HaHa.... James is hoping she keeps it on her new desk at her new school and we wish her all the best at her new school.
We have no idea who the new teacher will be. Who ever it is they will have great big boots to fill.

I know the class was planning some sort of party for her and putting on a play and some items for her today. James is not really into acting so he took his violin with him instead and is going to play a piece for her. Good luck James.

Do you remember a special teacher leaving? .....

Baby Quilt - Vintage Modern

Last week I finished off this little baby quilt using Moda - Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille fabric. I just love it. The colour combination is just beautiful.

Disappearing Nine Patch Baby Quilt

I made this for my new little niece born last week. Hopefully she will love it and keep it forever.

This was the first disappearing nine patch quilt I have made and I am very happy with the final result. The blue border just finishes it off beautifully.

I love the red spot border

Have a go at the dissapearing nine patch it's lots of fun and you can experiment with the design. I have started another one and should be finished soon.

Happy Quilting

Rainy Day in the mountains

Well its raining here today and the kids are playing games and are happy doing their own thing. Its a public holiday and they think it is great they don't need to go to school. Me I am going to get into some sewing. The perfect thing to do on a rainy day.
