Current Wip and Mr. Aiden

I have a few pics of my current wip, which is "joyful and caring" from Little Women of Virtue from LHN. I am going to label this one with my daughter, Brianna's name. I hope to have it finished by this weekend. I am going to the framers to pick up two finished pieces and I would like to be able to give her this piece to frame. Then I will order the next one to work for my stepdaughter, Jessica. I also have some pics of mr. cool with his shades on. He is such a ham! Thanks for reading and I really appreciate your comments!

First Day of School Year no. 14.

Today was the first day of school for the students. It was hectic and chaotic but exciting. This is my 14th year of teaching and each year is still exciting. I see teaching not as a job or even a career, it is my vocation. I feel that some people are called to teach the same way that some people are called to preach. Being a teacher is just who and what I am. I took a couple pic of my class before the madness began!

End of summer and back to work.

I had a wonderful trip to Ky visiting with my family. Sometimes being so far away from them can be tough but of course, they are only a phone call away.

Tomorrow I go back to school and I am very excited about the new school year. I truly love being a teacher.

I have managed to get some stitching in while traveling. I finished my "red house in winter" ornie and my bookmark for the ILCS exchange. I won't publish a pic of my bookmark until my partner receives it. The "red house in winter" was my first time stitching on linen. I did make a few mistakes but I am pleased with it. I left off the border on the bottom of the ornament because I just felt like it didn't go with the ornie.

I started my next "little women of virtue" piece. It is the joyful and caring pic. I am going to label this one with my daughter, Brianna's name. My stitching time will be curtailed with my back to work routine but I will try to continue stitching in the evenings after Aiden is asleep. Thanks for reading my blog and all comments are appreciated. Happy Stitching!
