Pi's super fabulous principal recently announced she will be retiring this year. The announcement spread like wildfire through the entire town and the reaction was incredible. I've never seen so many people show thanks and appreciation to an educator as much as she is receiving. She totally deserves it, as she's really great with the kiddos and the parents.
Everyone has been brainstorming on special ways to say goodbye at the end of the year and somehow, someway, I agreed to help make a simple quilt from Piper's class. Lost.My.Mind!
Being too late to turn back now, I've jumped in and don't plan to think of how crazy I am to agree to this, until it's all over.
I brought fabric squares and crayons to school and let the kids doodle away. I've not got a stack of 28 hand colored squares to sew together.
I'm thinking of doing a simple checkerboard quilt like this. Whaddya think?
Some kids needed "do-overs" like this kid. Her original square screamed stalker (!!), so I'm glad she made another one that didn't mention going to the principal's house at all. Whew!
The quilt has to be finished by the end of June. Wish my crazy butt some luck! ;)
