As a teacher, sometimes you just have to break it to a kid that it isn’t always all about you. Accept it…get over it…move on.
For Quilt Around the World II, one of the participants wanted each of us to make a block that is representative of us. An avid hiker/climber had a pair of hiking boots surrounded by a mountain scene…a beach fan had a hilarious one of a woman at the beach. Here is mine…not a clever, but it definitely represents me. Can you pick out the parts?
I am a passionate environmentalist and am always trying to get my students to understand that it takes just a little thought and effort to do the right thing with respect to the environment. I am a tree hugger and love to go trooping around outside. I started knitting ages ago and still usually have 2 or 3 projects going at once. The crab fabric is because I am the “Bay Lady” at school, teaching about the Chesapeake Bay. The last two fabrics are Kaffe Fassett – and I am a huge fan of his prints, plus the pencils do double duty for the school side of my life. So..as I said…this time it really IS all about me 🙂
