We also had a challenge to decorate a round tin lid. I used a lid from a can of potato sticks :)
I finished my first pair of socks about 10 days ago and started a second pair. Here's the completed socks. This is a picture after I had worn and washed them.
This is the pair I'm working on now.
Tonight I had two crockpots going with meals for the week.
If only I had another few days off I could get so much more done! :)

I meant to post this last week but never got around to it. I have been in a knitting mood lately and my friend Ingrid shared this Booga Bag pattern with me. I think everyone and their sister has been knitting these.
Here is my bag before felting.
and after felting....
I'm not sure what I'll use it for. I think I'd like to make a couple of others for friends :)
I have spent HOURS today cleaning and organizing my scrapbook room. I hope to be done with it tomorrow.

One of the little girls in my class drew this picture for me. It's me, and quite frankly, a pretty good likeness. I told her I wanted to take it home to hang on my refrigerator. Then I decided I would share it with you.
Last week I went out to Wendy's with my friend Ingrid before our knitting class and I ran into a little girl that I had in kindergarten a few years back. She's in 4th grade now. As I was walking my class to art the other day I passed her and she hopped out of line to give me a hug!
A year ago I ran into another former student at the grocery store. She was a sophomore in high school and told me she had to write an essay on her favorite teacher and chose me! I have goosebumps just writing that.
I hope I make an impact on all my students. It touches my heart when I see them years (or even months) later and I get these kinds of reactions!
I remember my 6th grade English teacher, Miss FitzGerald. I still see her at the grocery store and 33 years after 6th grade I still smile when I see her and remember that class with her!
