This year for my soon to be family I decided to make them each a little something. What I ended up making was pears. Now the funny thing was, when I went to Michael's they had the perfect cards. So, I made my pears to match.
The pear ornaments are consist of felt, embroidery floss and ribbon.
Below is the template for the pieces. Feel free to save them or print them out. When you do print them out be sure to choose full page option so they will be the correct size.
To make the ornament, I chose 2 contrasting colors of felt and white felt. One color would be for the main part of the pear, and the other for the small circle. The white was for the medium size circle, and the leaf.
Once I cut all the pieces out of the felt, I sewed the small circle to the larger circle. I used a modified blanket stitch.

Sccchoooollll's out for SUMMER!!! And you thought student's where the only ones counting down the days till summer. I have to say I am soooo happy that it's finally here. It has been an interesting year! Most definitely a learning experience. I only have one more day of closing up shop and the summer will officially begin!
I am not teaching summer school this year so I have some big plans! My summer is going to start off with a trip to Mississippi. I know exciting right? Well, it is all about how you look at it.
A friend of mine and I are going because she is doing research for writing project she's working on. It is also and excuse to explore an area I haven't really had a chance to delve into. We're going to be doing a scavenger hunt there as well. I will try and post pics when I can. So if you have any suggestions please feel free to share! I will add them to our list and give you a shout out if we come across it. The suggestions can be silly…
Hello All! I am back. Life has been crazy recently. I finished both my teaching credential and my master's. So for now I am free. I am back to posting.
It is winter break for my district, which means loads of down time for me. It may sound crazy, but I really don't do well with too much time off. I get bored and the cabin fever sets in.
To help quell my boredom, I am collecting spring clothing patterns and projects. I have found a few so far on Merrick's Art. If you haven't checked out the blog before, take a gander. There are some great tutorials.
Here are a few that I found and am planning on trying.
