Pillows galore

My principal wanted some pillows made for her office.  She told me a general idea and than I ran with it.  She liked them so much she didn’t leave them in her chairs like she planned.  She didn’t want anyone messing them up.

Recycle and Redesign

I made a bag from a dog food bag for a friend.  The first one I made was a sample.

This week my students are working on recycle and redesign projects.  I saw these at the fair.  The blue and yellow dress was made from fair ribbons turned backwards.  The dress with the orange skirt used men’s ties for the top.  I can’t wait to see what my students come up with.

We haven’t been to the state fair in a couple of years, but we thought we should take Hannah.

Bill and Justin tried pulled pork parfaits and brisket parfaits.  It is layered meat, barbeque sauce, and mashed potatoes.  They liked them.  These are new items at the fair this year.

I tried fried banana pudding.  The pudding was on the bottom.  The banana was rolled in a thin layer of pastry, then deep fried.  It was pretty good.
