In 2012 I made this self portrait quilt:
The blocks were part of a Saturday Sampler created using alot of Mary Engelbreight fabric. The girl was just a Sunday inspiration in the sewing room. I LOVE that she now hangs in my classroom and kicks off each new year with us creating our "self portrait school family wall".
|Yes, I have a class size of 28.|
Well, lately the kids have inspired me once again with their drawings of me!
This one was the cover of a get well card back in February.
So many of their details were "me"...well, except for those hands....hmmmm????
And then there was this one created from the number one-hundred as we celebrated the 100th day of school with a creative project: (Note it was also "hat day"....yes, things are never dull in an elementary school!) Isn't she adorable!
Not that I need to add more to my Quilty To Do List....but a story quilt is always of my mind...
one that would document my life as a teacher. I think it would be sooo fun to make!
Do you do that? Have a special project fermenting in the back of your mind?
Speaking of teaching, I just finished a marathon week of parent-teacher conferences and now get to enjoy a three day weekend. Of which will find hubby and I off to the city for dinner and a comedy club this afternoon, then I'm looking forward to a weekend of sewing!!!! YAH!!!
