Ahhhh....Soggy Saturday in South Carolina

What a wonderful relief from the heat! It is raining big beautiful drops of rain from the sky.
Ahhhh....Soggy Saturday in South Carolina

Our precious middlers arrived Wednesday and it was wonderful. I love meeting the 6th graders. They are always so excited and anxious about leaving their former elementary schools and entering the middle school. They are so confused as to where to go and what to do next. There is a little Hispanic fellow (Marvin) in the 6th grade who tickles me so much. He speaks very little English. I guess I was the closest adult when he first encounter his dilemma so now he will walk right past other adults and come straight to me everytime he isn't sure he is at the correct classroom. It has been a very smooth opening for our school but, boy, have I been tired at the end of the day. When I am that tired, the best thing I can do to relax is knit. Having said that, let me show you what I have worked on this week....
Birthing of A Kimono
I also have had a request from a colleague for a patchwork quilted bag. This will be my first bag I have sold. All others I have either kept or given away. Several teachers are asking if I would make some bags in our school colors. That just might be a possiblity! :)

That's terrific news about your bags!!! And isn't the rain wonderful? We had some in Atlanta, too.

It's rained here in Charleston most of the day, but it's been such a relief from the blazing heat!

The sweater is darling.

Everything looks so green! I was loving that cool, rainy weather we had this weekend. It felt so good! Thanks for being such a great teacher - grandson #1 started school for the first time last week, and I was so grateful for all the dedicated and kind individuals there. You ARE appreciated!!
