Tonight I was officially hired to finish out the school year in a maternity leave position - in the subject matter (social studies) and grade level I have hoped/trained for! It means the WORLD to me. When I told my sister, she said, "Well, you'd better get sewing - I can totally see a mug rug on every desk." Challenge. Accepted.

But not really. Maybe another year ;). I do have some ideas for classroom sewing... but I'll have to share that in another post. Just wanted to share the good news! Thank you to those of you who have been so supportive of me in finding a job - you know who you are!

I know... more Honey Honey... I'm a huge tease. I can't show it yet but I'm going to quilt it this week :)
