A Little Bit of Happy!

I've been sewing a bit. I love all the little bits of color from the quilt fabrics I have collected. Isn't this house and border just soooooo cute!

Both of these pillows were made from patterns designed by Lori Holt. I just love this big chicken!

And, we had Science Fair last week. Kindergarten celebrated the Emperor Penguin!

The 8th grade class came over and helped us make this paper chain. One of our 8th grade boys is 6ft.4". he put it up without a ladder! Zoey's mom came in and helped put the lap books together. She made penguin cookies too. What a great mommy! See, Happy Feet is playing on the screen! So fun!

Have a wonderful week! Thank you for stopping by!



  1. Very sweet pillows, Patti! I admire gals like you who sew!
    Your class room looks like a very Happy place for your students!
    Thinking about you...

  2. I always thought that teaching kindergarten would be the easiest job in the world until I worked for a drug treatment program and used to go into the schools to talk to kids. IN the kindergarten classes I would talk to them about what was safe for them to put in their mouths and what wasnt.. and their were puppets. lol! I found a new respect and appreciation for a job that I thought would be easy.. oh my goodness! NOT true at all. the kids are sweet.. but the keeping 22 5 years old on task???? I bow down to you!!! the stamina and patience you must have! I would come home from a couple hours of that with scrambled eggs for a brain! lol!
    anyways.,. you rock! thats about that !
    and..... then theres those pillows! sooooo cute! I LOVE the chicken!! Ive been thinking that I need to make a couple easter throw pillows. quilted ones would be cute!
    Have a great day my friend!

  3. I love the Lori Holt projects. I bought Farm Girl Vintage for myself for Christmas and have not started yet. Your fabric choices are terrific! So fun. And your classroom is adorable.

  4. Oh love your pillows, so cute! Your classroom is adorable, look the penguin displays. :)

  5. Love your pillows those are so pretty and cute!! Such a cute penguin display in your classroom too, so fun! :) ""Giving you some chicken love your way!"" ;) We haven't made a coop for them yet, of course there are so many cute ones and ideas on pinterest to look at though! Wishing you a lovely day! xo Holly

  6. I just love seeing sneak peeks of your classroom and all your kiddos special artwork. Your pillow is wonderful. You are so talented. PS. I pulled out my Easter bunting from you this evening and am decorating my plantation dollhouse for Easter. It makes me smile to see your special bunting out with my house. Hugs!!

  7. I love cute pillows and need to change mine out soon! Enjoy the week ahead! Hugs, Diane

  8. Love, love the pillows! The fabrics are so bright and fun! The penguins are adorable. We have been learning about insects and are moving into life cycles next and then plants. I have never made lap books with my kinders but they are so neat. Do you do them often? It seems so time consuming to make and I don't have a volunteer. Maybe in May after testing season is over! I love your classroom! Have a great week. I'm on spring break...:)

    Hugs, Vicky

    How cute that the 8th graders came to help the kindergarten.

  10. Hi Patti! Oh, your pillows are so sweet and I love the chicken one. What a fun time at school. My little granddaughter who just turned 6 and is in kindergarten, is entering her project in the science fair at her school! I'm just amazed. Thanks for popping in to see me and your kind comments.
    Be a sweetie,
