Moving swiftly along...



Thanks to everyone for their kind messages of support after my bad day yesterday. The difficulty arose, I can now see, as the children finished their project for the day with 10 mins in hand. The devil makes work....and all that. I've seen teach allowing them to choose a board game when spare class time arises. I'll have to prime substitute teach to the same. Substitute teach is obviously a bit like the men in ones life. Needs careful management.

The pictures shows some jewellery made from junk, another of my passions. I've been trying for months to persuade the Embroiderers' Guild to let me loose on them and the first branch recently agreed. It's a posh and prestigious branch and I'm looking forard to seeing their collection of high class junk.

I've just had another eight week booking from a primary school working with the babies this time. My brief is is texture, developing colour, pattern and shape whilst celebrating the school's 10th anniversary. With six year olds? It's enough to make you long for a five foot six, insolent, gum chewing, teacher ignoring primary seven!

Yes I do need the hassle of teaching Sara. Even when I'm really cheesed off with it I always think well, the one thing I'm not is bored.

Glad you like the jewellery girls. Must confess it's not of my making. I Swedish lady who came to workshop conconted it. It's coloured plastic squares and melted plastic bag, stitched into with the sewing machine.
