Design Wall – September 12, 2016

It isn’t on my design wall but I did a little sewing. That’s better than no sewing at all, right?

I’ll do a blog post tomorrow about this little bag.

First Day of School

Addie missed the cutoff for the 4 year old pre-school by just a few days so she’s in the same class she was in last year. She was one of the youngest in last year’s class so this year, she’ll think she’s top dog with the same teachers, same programs . . and she may try to take over and tell the teachers how to run the show but I’m sure they’ve encountered that before.

First Day

First Day

She only goes a couple of hours two days a week so it’s fun for Addie and gives Nicole a break. But . . how on earth did she grow up so quickly? Wasn’t it just yesterday that she was a baby?

Just when I think I’m ok staying in Texas for a while longer, Nicole sends me a picture like this and I want to be there for her first days of school (and the second and third and 100th days!)

By the way, Nicole and I once made pompoms for some hats and Addie fell in love with pompoms and the pompom makers. I think her backpack has lots of pompoms. You can see a couple of them sticking out in the picture.
