Food Full

Hello Friends,It is a quiet Sunday here in still hot South Carolina. Isn't this fabric the best? OOh I love it. Not sure how to use it. Currently, I have it hanging up over my desk to admire.
This is the bracelet I made for Lisa as the winning prize for the blog give away. I like how it came out and hope she likes it too.Not much here. Still the 30 first graders. We are doing self portraits(except the first graders) which is my favorite- then we will start moving into the open studio program.Trying to get some more sewing done but often distracted(especially with reading). Read a good book, with wonderful sounding recipes. Will try to make some this week, but the desserts are the most enticing. The book is called A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg. Now I am readingBrooklyn. So far so good. And to add to meaningless information, last night I made myself the best dinner of a seared tuna steak on a bun with wasabi mayo and steamed spinach with a glob of goat milk brie oozing all over it. Ah delish. Okay enough about me. What about you?

Full of First Graders

Here I am back after the first week of school. Still breathing so that is a good sign. 30 first graders at one time is not such a good sign, but they said they might be able to cut it down to 26. Kindness. (not sure what happened here with formatting)
Here is the project I need to work on.
I made these faces and what not with paper clay.

Next I painted them, but now I have to do something with them. I tried making a doll out of one in France but I didn't like the look. Any ideas?

Let's see what else... little Miss is taking a fashion class and will actually have to sew stuff. Ah can't wait to see that. Their first project is pajamas. Maybe I can get a picture of them for you guys.
No internet high school this semester. Not enough student interest. It is a nice hiatus for me. May go to Round Top flea market thing with Lorraine outside of Austin. Could be fun.
Still working on the flowers. Hope you are all well and doing fun things. Tra la la.

Full of this and that

Hey all,
I think I am off to Columbia, SC for a few days of online school computer training if they could please tell me when and where. ( I am suppose to be there tomorrow but haven't a clue as to the 5 Ws). Anyway I thought I would leave you with some images. The first is a photo of things I forgot I bought in France and a better glimpse at Help.
Here's the stuff I couldn't resist at anthropologie
and finally who could this lovely walking box person be? I bet you haven't the foggiest. I'll give you a hint- she got a bureau at IKEA and put all the drawers together by herself. Guess what she is unhappily getting for her birthday? An electric screwdriver. More in awhile, maybe I'll even get some journal pages done at the hotel in Columbia if they give me more info.
