I honestly haven’t picked up my hoop and needle in a week at least! I’ve been inundated with capes, so the power scissors and sewing machine have been my best friends this week.
It is time to start thinking about end of the year teaching gifts and this is what I’m working on for the Rooster’s teacher. She is retiring this year after 40+ years of teaching and I felt like I needed to send her off with something a bit more nontraditional and hopefully special.
The embroidery pattern is from wee wonderful’s shop. I love her stuff! She was one of the first blogs I ever stumbled across six or so years ago when I entered the sewing/blogging world and she has just gotten more and more amazing.
The idea is to use the kid’s names to create a “frame” around the embroidery. I’m still deciding if I’m going to wrap it onto a canvas, make it into a tote bag for her.
