I am one of the room mothers
For Chace's class at school.
I am also the co-chair of
This years fundraising auction for the school.
Each class creates a project to auction off.
The room mothers are in charge of organizing this task.
Since I am a room mom and can sew.
Guess what that means?
Yep. You guessed it.
Chace's class project is a quilt!
My thought was to give each child
A white square of fabric, have them draw a letter of the alphabet
And then have them draw items that start with that letter.
I will then sew the blocks together
And appliqué fabric letters in each block.
I think it will work.
Or at least I hope it will work.
Yesterday was the day
That we created the drawing on the blocks.
We heard some awesome things from the children.
" I play a angry birds so I am going to draw a red bird"
" my brother is going to be so surprised to see me"
" my mom is really good at drawing penguins"
" I don't know how to draw"
And my personal favorite:
" when my mom gets nervouse she chews her hair"
I am sure the parents of these children
Would be thrilled to know what their kids
Were sharing with the room moms while drawing.
Note to self: maybe I should always be the room mom!
