Table Tubs


My teaching partner made a comment that she wanted to have some Table Tubs this year, so the children could have thier pencils and red pens "at the ready" rather than wasting time finding them in pencil cases.

So I got busy on my sewing machine and whipped up these little beauties.  Needless to say, she was "thrilled" and the children love them too.  Our room looks fabulous with a little touch of . . . sewing!

I had a parcel arrive this week.

~Beautiful hand weaving and a special little present for me~

. . . and these are our Matisse Inspired Portraits, that were done in Week 1.
Yes, it's back to School, and my head is spinning already.

Your tubs are wonderful! You sure are a whiz with your sewing machine Annie. I'm amazed at how quickly you can whip something up.

Your little pincushion is very nice.

I love those portraits. They are so colorful and happy and great.

Happy Teaching, Gardening and Sewing.

The tubs look great for the classroom and the little woven pincushion is lovely. Back to school certainly sets a cracking pace.

You have been so busy!!
I love your tubs. Are we taking up weaving next? Did you know I have a loom?
And can you teach me to draw like that. Those portraits are so clever.

The tubs are perfect, the pincushion a delight, but the Matisse portraits are truly inspired! What a talented lot of kiddos you have there.
