Where have I been?

Yes, it has been a long time since I last posted...August 10th! So much has happened and it has been crazy! 
Sometime in the beginning of August, I got a call from the principal at the school I often teach at to do another long term assignment starting in October. I knew I would have a few more weeks of summer so in mid August, a couple of my girlfriends and I took a road trip downstate to visit another of our girlfriends. 
During our visit, I got another call from the principal, asking me to switch long term assignments to one that would start off the year. At that point my summer seemed to abruptly end as the very next week I needed to get to school to start setting up the classroom. 
(The school was closed all summer for maintenance.)  
With less than 2 weeks notice, I started school as a First Grade teacher of 21 students! In the beginning of the year, we work a lot on establishing routines and learning classroom rules. It is hard work for 1st graders as they are not use to being in school all day and there are higher expectations to work for longer periods of time. I'm hoping that this week will be a little bit easier as we have been in school 4 days. Hope they didn't forget over the long weekend!
I will probably not be spending much time in my sewing room so I won't be posting very often. I already miss it but I will be back to check in when I can.
Before all this happened, I made these cute little fabric envelopes for a good friend of mine. They are super easy to make and are so cute.

I made 20 with 3 different lining fabrics.
I also worked on some pincushions that I will show you during the Pin It Blog Hop coming September 10th through the 17th. I will be posting on the 11th so come back a visit! 
In the meantime...


  1. Good luck with your sweet students. Cute fabric envelopes!

  2. See you in the hop! Enjoy your students, they are just so cute at that age.... Love your envelopes.
