This is the first year since Sweetheart G began Kindergarten that I did not make a quilt for school.
Last year, between the two classrooms, I made 4 quilted wallhangings for the auction. With the end of year quilt I made, the count goes up to 5.
This year, we did a book for Little e's classroom,
and Sweetheart G's class made magnets with a local artist.
(I'll blog about this later.)
I was still involved in both auction projects,
and I still did a lot of art instruction in both classrooms
through our Parent Led Art program.
It's important to me to spend time in their classrooms
teaching art. My own memories of the rare times we
had art instruction when I was in 4th grade are some
of my strongest memories of time in the classroom.
But here's the thing, I miss the fabric work.
I miss the artistic challenge to assembling those quilts.
At the beginning of the year, I felt so burnt out, and I
think not doing them was a good choice, but I miss
all that color and design play.
So, I've been pulling out my fabrics and playing with colors
and thinking about what kind of a project I want to start.
It's time for a quilt or two of my own.
Time to stretch the old brain a bit.
