tearsMonday, June 11, 2007
It has been crazy busy around here with all of the end of year school functions. Last Thursday night Charlie had his recognition night for the end of his elementary years. Next year he will be headed to the middle school. How did this happen? Didn't I just bring him home from the hospital? Wasn't it just yesterday that I was smelling his sweet breast fed breath? Didn't I just send him to pre-school? I know he just started kindergarten. How could he possibly be going to middle school? It is amazing how many tears your kids bring you. I am such a town cryner, and cry at every little milestone. And to tell you the truth all of his years at the elementary school are all one big blur. I just hate that. I also hate how stinkin' fast time is going.
I made a few tissue cozy's for a few of my friends who also cry as much as me. We needed them last Thursday night. The kids all sang a dinosaur songs that they sang when they were in kindergarten. Their voices all seem as sweet. Ahhhh! Tearing up again. I have to get a tissue.
I used the tutorial from tutti fruiti. And they do only take 5 minutes! This fabric is from fabric shack, summer in the city. They must be out of the paisley. I made a small change, and made two 6x4 rectangles and two 6x4 1/2 rectangles for the top pieces. I kind of like them to overlap a bit.
