I have been lucky enough for the last year to co- lead a knitting early bird club at my school. Another teacher and I knit for about 45 minutes three times a week with a group of our students who are in grades 3 to 5. We have a great time. I can't think of a more relaxing way to start the day.
We work in my office around a long table and when the girls( so far no boys) don't need our help we knit along with the students. This is our last week with some of the girls, some will return for the second semester and some are going to try a new club. We are having a little breakfast on Thursday to celebrate and the girls are displaying some of their hand knit products. I brought my camera into work today and although I really wanted to take a picture of the girls' work and you will see Robyn's bunny next, this is the most recent quilt that I made. It is called Wheels of Mystery. I brought it into work to show, hung it up then realized that I spend more time at work then home and just kept it here. I just love Robyn's bunny. The girls have made so many of these and they all look different and everyone loves them. It's hard to believe that they really are just a rectangle or sometimes a trapazoid with extra knitted ears!

Frances, that quilting is wonderful. I could gaze at it for hours. My eyes immediately start looking for the "pattern"...this one took me awhile! I'm getting a quilting lesson from my friend Clare...I want to make a few pot holders like she gifted me with at Christmas. I can do the sewing (piecing), binding and such...just not the lay-out and cutting out.
