The school year has ended and is it me, or does it feel like the excitement of starting the new school year was only yesterday?
So many activities, end of year shows, commitments, shopping, parties, planning and food.
My little lady has had THE most amazing teacher this year. She has helped my shy little girl come out of her shell and become much more confident - to the point of being the host of her class assembly, in front of the whole school.
Mrs Barker was very special and so we gave her a quilt. It's one which appeared in an issue of 'Love Sewing Australia' magazine, and which I loved making.
The season is building to a crescendo and I for one, am looking forward to a long lazy January.
I haven't had much sewing time lately, but have managed to squeeze in a few pre-Christmas personalized cushion orders.
Oh, and some baking ofcourse. We weren't sure what to do with all of the candy canes so we decided to crush them and make some minty powder to top butter cookies.
