We were quite disappointed when we were broken the news because his teacher is adorable and I just can't imagine the new teacher being able to fill her shoes. I've been told nice things about the new/old teacher, so I'm hoping it'll work out OK.

I have personalised this with a little raw edge applique and free-motion embroidery on the cover and the inside cover with her name "Ms Fritz". I love that she'll have something cute and personal to show off in the staffroom.

It was purely a co-incidence that the journal had a flower on the front, and I didn't even come up with the idea for personalisation until I was already underway with the making. I just wish I had spaced it all out better, I tried to account for seam allowance but obviously, not well enough!
I showed my niece today, who is also a Kindergarten teacher and she thought it was a fantastic gift (she gets some pretty awesome stuff - perfume, gift vouchers etc). This journal cover fits a standard A4 notebook which means once you fill up this one you can take it out and put in a new one.

I hosted Lewis' 4th birthday party this morning (his birthday is later in the week) . There were about 10 boys from preschool (plus parents and a few siblings) at a local park, the weather was glorious and we almost had the park and playground to ourselves.
I feel kinda wiped out now but I'm trying to find some energy for some more sewing. You see I have an incentive: Rachel promised a handmade present for all the people who complete one project from each week of Curves Camp. I've got one more project to go - the Wheel Quilt but have I got the stamina to make a quilt top by the deadline in 20hrs? I really just want to flake out...
