It's Been Way Too Long

I'm not really sure why it has been almost a month since I last posted. Yikes! Fortunately, report cards went out last week, so I'm done with them for a couple of months. The other good news is that my student teacher is now with me every day. By the second week of February, she'll be in charge and I will be there as support. I'm excited about it because it will mean that my work weeks will be down to 40 hours. What a novel idea!

I have taken some time to do some sewing lately, which has been really fun. Our friends who are also our neighbors are having a baby in a week or two, so I've been making some things for them. She had a baby shower last week, so I made a tag blanket and bath apron, both of which I failed to take a picture of before I gave them away. This weekend I also made a pair of fleece mittens and a hat. The tag blanket was so fun and easy to make that I made another two this weekend.

This one is made out of two shirts Kirk was giving away, with fleece on the back. It's about 13" x 13".

This is monkey flannel with fleece. It's 9.5" x 9.5".
