Teachers...tick

The teacher Christmas gifts are complete.  It didn't take long to attach the buttons and pins, so I can show my face at school without a guilty conscience.

These are the best pictures I could muster under the dreary circumstances today...


I spent the rest of the morning making a couple of blocks for Bee Blessed, pictures to come, and piecing the backing and binding for my Retro Flowers quilt.  I am on a roll with this one, it is my 'want to' make rather than my 'have to' make right now.  I am hoping to get it basted and quilted before the end of the week so that I have some nice binding to finish off over the weekend.

This weekend is our only 'unfilled' weekend until the New Year, so in my head I am already planning a lazy Sunday afternoon on the sofa, stitching and snoozing, let's see what happens eh!

  1. You do Christmas gifts for teachers? Ours have to earn it and only get something if they survive the whole school year!
