Fond Farewell

Well , both of my kids will have new teachers when they go back to school and nursery after the Easter holidays . My Daughters' teacher has started her maternity leave , and she's having twins , so Good Luck to her lol. One of the other mums got everyone organised into bringing bits and bobs , wipes , cotton wool etc. and made up two very nice baskets for her. My Sons' nursery teacher (she also taught me Daughter through nursery) has gone to new pastures , and as she was very much loved by both of my kids , I wanted to make her something to remember them by. I love Lizzie Kate designs , so one of their teacher charts had to fit the bill. I was undecided between two , but my Husband said this was more appropriate As she has touched all of our lives over the last three years. ( I have changed a couple of the colours around from what is charted).

I wanted to make it into a hanging pillow , so she could display it if she wanted to.Close up of the front , and the hanging bits She seemed to like it , but I'm not sure she could see it properly through all the tears. I don't think she stopped crying all day , but she wasn't on her own. She will be very much missed by a lot of people.

Anyway , on a happier note, My name was picked out of the ice cream tub of destiny to be Gaynors' RAK giveaway winner. I'm really excited , as she does some lovely stuff , and it sounds very intriguing from the questions I've been asked , lol. Time will tell !

Catch you soon , I hope to have a couple more posts over the next few days.

Thanks for dropping by,

Cath

Hi Cath
The hanging pillow is beautiful. I am sure she will treasure it forever. My husband is a teacher and I know he appreciates the little homemade gifts and cards he receives from time to time.
Congratulations on winning the giveaway.
Have a lovely Easter and don't eat too many eggs!

Hi Cath,
I am a bit late picking up the threads in your blog lol, but better late than never !

The pillow you made is beautiful,no wonder the teacher was crying. A lovely thought.
She will have her work cut out with twins lol, as I know from experience. But they will be great fun.

Congratulations on your recent awards!
