Yesterday was Pumpkin's graduation from Preschool.
She seems so BIG.
I'll be sad to send her to school next year.
My only solace is that one of my bestest friends will be her teacher.
Otherwise, I think I'd have to enroll myself into kindergarten.
I wanted to give Pumpkin's teacher something special.
I mean, handmade.
I'm sure she gets mugs and chocolate.
But who needs more mugs?
unless of course they're vintage or totally cute...
okay so I could have gotten her a set of mugs with red polka dots
and it would have totally rocked....
and look you can get a matching cake or pastry pedestal...
Miss H is young and has no children.
She is looking to buy a house
but I didn't want to give her something she would just have to move.
Or maybe not even like.
So I settled on ordering her a PED EGG
(which I know she wants)
and making her a bookmark.
Any excuse to use Amy Butler is a good one!
but really wanted to try piecing fabrics together for a scrappy look
and then saw one on Etsy made by
And a lightbulb went off.
I loved my Amy fabric sooo much that I did
a scrappy patchwork on the front and
then backed it with my fave print.
I really enjoyed making it!
Now I think I need to make more.
Even Hubby wants one.
(not in Amy Butler though)
I think I might make them as gifts for our favourite librarians.
Oh the joy of living small town life!
I had Pumpkin do a tracing paper card
with the words "thank you" on it.
Thank you Miss H.
We had a great year!
