Oh, dear! I just realized that it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted anything. So here I am. I’ve been busy, though. I went and visited my parents for a couple of days
and then went to an Association for a Healing Education (they teach about educational support in Waldorf schools) conference on Movement in Early Childhood. It was fun! And I came away with lots of new ideas for my classroom–but more about that later.
I’ve been starting to gear up for the new school year. I retrieved my things from my old classroom and brought them home to spruce them up.
I forgot to take a before picture, but I needle-felted this tree a few years ago. It was looking kind of drab after sitting in the display window for a few years, so I added some of my recently dyed wool locks (thank you Natalie Redding!) to brighten it up and this is how it looks now.
I made this Mother Earth doll 15 years ago, when I started teaching Parent-Child classes. She has received much love over the years and has held up well. She got a new summer apron and wreath, again, needle-felted with some of the wool I dyed.
Oh, and I finished a quilt I made for my daughter, Rachel. I haven’t sent it off yet, and I am not a very good quilter, but it came out better than the first one I made for Gabi. I used some beautiful fabrics from Anna Maria Horner and made them into squares–it doesn’t get much simpler than that. And my mom helped me make the binding (well, actually, she made it and I watched–thanks, Mom!)
Probably because I had some help from Midnight.
I cut out new placemats for my classroom–that’s my next project.
Boy, do I love projects!
Anyhow, that’s all for now.
Thanks for stopping by!
