Fallen leaves, falling behind - WIP Wednesday

The last day of school is tomorrow, and I have just gotten started on my teacher's gift!  I know I will not be able to finish it, but luckily our teacher is going to be teaching summer school to some of the older kids, so as long as I get it done soon I should be forgiven.

I got this idea from Samelia's Mum month's ago.  Since she is down under, her school year ends during our winter, and she made a wonderful tree wall hanging for a special teacher. I thought it was a brilliant concept.

I thought this would go quickly by machine applique, but one test piece on Big Brother told me it was not the best idea.  He does have a zigzag stitch, but it was a little unpredictable and I want this to look nice!  Without Ms. Kitty back, I am appliqueing by hand.   I am going to write each student's name on a leaf (the 3 "fallen" leaves are kids that left during the year).  I hope it will turn out alright.

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
