School Days...

The last & final
 in the Word Play Series...
this month is honoring the teacher.

While stitching this back-to-school themed Word Play,
it brought back those school memories...
getting new sneakers,
the smell of a new box of crayons,
new pencils & notebooks,
watching for the school bus
missing the school bus...
favorite teachers,
favorite teacher quotes,
"take out a quarter sheet of notebook paper & number 1 through 10",
a daily quote from my favorite teacher,
Mr. Wetzler.
My high school biology & anatomy teacher...
1/4 sheet of notebook paper
for our daily quizzes...
he was not only teaching us about his subjects,
but also,
to conserve and not be wasteful...
a life time lesson.

Which leads me to a favorite quote,
"to teach is to touch a life forever"...
So hats off to all the teachers,
this months
 Word Play
 is for you!

I am coming off an operating software failure with my computer,
no data was lost
thanks to my external backup.
I'm back up and running,
sort of...

 I am having issues downloading CS5,
my graphics program,
 and hopefully
will have this ironed out by today's end,
with tech support.
With this said,
there may be a slight delay (by a day or 2)
 in the release of Septembers Word Play,
as this is the program that houses my pattern cover template...

Have a good day,

I will finish up August today and I was wondering as I was stitching what you would choose for September. You are so smart!! I never thought about teachers and school starting. It is so fitting too. I can't wait. I can't wait to take a picture of all 12 of them together. It has been fun. Thank you. I hope you get your computer fixed. Nothing worse than computer problems.

I like this latest design. Our Deputy Head is retiring at Christmas, this might make a rather fitting present for her.

Thank you!
