Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.(Philippians 4:8)

Teacher Gifts & AMB Week 4

Yet another school year ends for my girls this week... and I ponder the idea of teacher gifts ...

How do you show your children's teacher how much you appreciate them without adding to a pile of things they don't need or want?

Well, I don't know the answer to that question, but I did decide on this Saturday Market bag pattern by Heather Bailey



Since I figured teachers usually have a pile of paperwork or lots of books to carry, what better way to help them with their loads than a bag to carry it all? 

If you haven't tried this pattern by Heather, it is worth your time... I made both of these bags in one day ... 
Saturday to be exact ... 
how appropriate right?
{{silly grin}}

And since I spent the rest of my weekend to this point starting and finishing the book Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins ... good read by the way if you've seen the first two movies ... I do believe I hear my bicycle calling me to hit the road and stretch some muscles before I get back to my sewing room to finish work on my American Made Brand block which I am scheduled to share with everyone on Monday, June 16th.  So please be sure to come back for a visit as there will be a giveaway of fantastic fabrics!
