I am linking to Lee at Freshly Pieced this week!
Hold on to your crafting hats ladies because I am going to blow you away with lots of fun kid-created art treasures. My works in progress have been many and I am tired---really tired of piecing and stuffing pillows. In the last two weeks I have made 25 pillows, 5 bags and 100 magnets :)
THANK GOD the school fundraising auction is on Friday and I can return to life as normal on Saturday!
Here's the truth: I am not a team player when it comes to crafts. Gossip amongst yourselves about that.
So, when I commited to helping with the student made art projects for the fundraising auction I knew what I was getting myself into--a ton of work because I like it done a certain way and that usually involves a lot of time and effort. And I love it--up until the last 48 hours and then I am ready to be done!
First up, I scanned these art pieces that grade 4/5 had painted--downloaded them to spoonflower.com and a yard of each (that got me 6 of each of the prints). I made pillows and bags and also notecards, magnets and a calendar (used Staples to print the paper stuff).
Some of the stuff is pictured below.

Grade 6 hand stitched 'Words to Live By' and I made them into pillows--I had the most fun with these. I did have to correct a few stitches here and there--but tried to keep them as 'real' as possible :)
I used a TON of scraps on these-yeah!
And I also made these two quilts--one for Kinder and one for Grade 1/2.
And so now, I get to resume my regular life as director of MHC--I am looking forward to organizing Bee Blocks into a birthday quilt for Joshua--finishing up a few tops that have been on the back burner for far too long and getting ready to move out of my house in 7 weeks!
Have a wonderful rest of the week everyone!
