My Creative Space

quilt 001 quilt 003 With all the drama trying to find a school that worked for Caleb his current teacher is such a lovely lady that I really wanted to make something a bit special for her Christmas / Thank you present. I don’t really enjoy making bags so a lap quilt it is. The majority is scraps with my new found love of solids (quite a bit of Kona solid has been purchased thanks to the AUD) in her requested colour palette of blue and green and tufted tweets for the backing. To be honest, it took forever to decide on a pattern and there was going to be much more detail in the blocks but time isn’t my friend so hope it is still interesting enough.

More creative wonders over at Kirsty’s.

What a beautiful and generous gift! I'd love to get back into some quilting, but with a very active almost two year old and a house on the market, it seems a bit challenging at the moment. Will have to stick to crochet for a bit longer I suppose. Portable and easy clean up!

I am so very glad you found a great school for your son to be. I am just starting out my career as a teacher. While it is challenging at times, (even on the great days!) it is also very rewarding. It's that spark of fire that kids get in their eyes when they are learning something they are truly interested in that I love. I sincerely wish for you, that your teacher sparks little fires in your sons eyes everyday.
