Time for the monthly Monday Made - It with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics.
Each Tuesday my quilt guild has a "sit and sew," and I try to go after school whenever possible. I don't have a lot of free time during the school year, so this helps me get a little bit of quilting done each week. I put together this wall hanging one week and quilted it this past week.
I used to make these little mice every year for my students but have not made any the last few years. When I was getting out Christmas decorations this year I came across my pattern and decided that I should bring back the tradition. I have 18 ready to go into gift bags.
My teaching partner and I celebrate Polar Express day on the last day of school before Christmas (this year it's the 20th). Cookie decorating is one of our activities -- our students have a blast each year frosting and using all sorts of sprinkles! During the movie they enjoy their cookies with hot chocolate. Last year I was blessed to have a parent volunteer to make all the cookies; this year my granddaughter is helping me. We baked 4 dozen this weekend and froze them.
I completed, printed, and laminated activities for my three days out of the classroom this week. I spent a long time on this project and I'm hoping they work great for my subs!
Can't wait to see what everyone has been working on over the last month!
