For the second part of the post I thought I would share our end of year quilts. Every year for the past several years Kelly (BFF) and I pick students that we feel are special to us and who we think deserve something to take with them from us as they leave our school to go to high school. We love these students and want only the best for them. We hope these quilts will inspire them and help them remember they are someone special. Kelly always does super duper labels for the back with great sayings. Of course I neglected to get pictures of those. Hopefully she didn't. We did four quilts this year. We try to pick colors we know they like and try to match the quilt to the student. Most of these students have never had someone make them something. One student thought we had bought them and then was astounded when we told her we made it just for her. They're basic quilts because we usually wait until the last minute and we try to make as many as we can. Here they are. Everyone have a great weekend.

Nationals Again and End of Year Quilts
This is one of the winning entries for nationals in Las Vegas next month. Seth and Steven are going again. Some of you who have been visitors for a long time know that Seth and Steven went to nationals (national woodworking that is) 2 years ago with a hutch. This time they did a table and it's pretty amazing. We'll cross our fingers and hope to take top spot this time. Even if we don't it's a good time for Seth and the wood shop gang to have fun.
