Tax Refund Purchase

With our tax refund this year, we paid off our truck and a credit card and I had enough to get my sweetie a camera that he's been wanting. Fortunately, it has already arrived, so I told him that I'm going to call it a Father's Day gift and have him wait until Sunday to open it. He's so excited! After almost a year off of work, I'm glad that we have an opportunity to splurge. :o)

Crayon Drawing quilt is done

We started this quilt back in October, but it got finished yesterday (at about 12:30 a.m.). I'm so happy that I made my deadline. This quilt was made for the teacher in our classroom. It's his first year of teaching and it's been a doozy of a year. Our class is a high school special education classroom and I wanted to commemorate his first year of teaching.
The students (with help from some of the assistants) made blocks by using color crayons and I made it into a quilt. It was presented yesterday at lunch, and today was the last day of school. And you know what? He liked it!

I have been quilting

I can only show you some of what I've been doing, though, because I gave away 2 quilts without remembering to take photos. I made 2 bags (but I'm showing you the front & back) and a quilt for one of the seniors at my school. I love my bags and he loves his quilt. :o)

And the rest of the art show...

Would you like to see my daughter's art show?

Here are her pieces of art. Next, I will show you some of her show partner's artwork. It was their senior show. Not all pieces were her favorites. The teachers chose what was to be shown. If nothing else, they are interesting. :o)
