Monday Made It

Another Monday...

At least it's a Monday Made It Monday! :)

Since our class has been going through some tough times, we came together to make a pillow for our classmate who's currently in the hospital with leukemia.

I had each student decorate a square, and then I sewed it all together quilt style.
I added some fleece in the back-to make it nice and soft!
My student LOVED the pillow-it went into immediate use!

I also made up an afghan-rainbow style, since rainbows bring cheer.

This is the quickest I've ever made one (and will probably the last time it will be the quickest-there were some late nights!)

I love how it turned out-I'll definitely be doing something similar!

New month, new door decor!

I made the rainbow after I found out about my definitely helped me process it a little, and I think it helps to cheer up my door!

I finally finished my co-worker's baby blanket! (It had been put on hold while I worked on the blanket above)

Now back to other WIPs and small projects (works in progress :)
We've been working with fractions in Math, and I put together some notebooks entries on working with fractions to help them remember!

Last few weeks were rough and tough for more than one reason-here's hoping this week goes A LOT better!

 Smiles and Sunshine,


  1. I am so sorry to hear about your ill student. What a great idea to make a class pillow! I bet he really enjoys it. I hope you're getting to skype with him while he's out. I did that with a classmate some years ago. Thanks for sharing. Kathleen
