    This just about made me cry...very special, thanks for sharing these. I know it is going to be a real treasure when you finish quilting them together to make an amazing keepsake.

    Well here are the rest of the fabric pieces I got from my kids in one of the classes I work with. They are all special to me. But some break my heart. :( I hated leaving them but I had no choice.

    Okay so I didn't get teary eyed until I was loading these onto here. I am going to miss my kids. I did pass out a few of my business cards to some of the kids who wanted them and told them to let their parents see them and know that if they approved it was a way for them to keep in touch with me.

    When I make this quilt I will put the child's picture next to their block. Because in sewing these blocks together into a quilt some of their names will disappear because they put them so close to the edge of the fabric.

    So this is what I will be working on all week next week.

    OT . . . I just hate it when we lose beloved and inspirational teachers! Why can't schools be well-funded? Politics! :evil: [Thanks for listening!]

    Henry ~ Again, those are a lovely tribute! Looking forward to seeing the quilt!

    Hi Henry- here is a positive outcome to this situation- maybe these kiddos will all be attending college as they will want to see you again and so will go to the university where you'll be at :):):)

    Those blocks are just so special. I can't wait to see your quilt. They are really going to miss you Henry!! You have given them some good memories to store of their childhood.

    Henry this is so sweet, wipe your eyes and remember all the good things you have achieved with these kids....the message is loud and clear - They love you!!

    Be proud of yourself....you can take advantage of this move to go forward now and touch many more hearts on your new journey.

    Your quilt is gonna be a beautiful keepsake, which you will treasure for the rest of your life :D :D

    all those wonderful messages the kids wrote must make teaching so rewarding and you can look back at the quilt with very fond memories. Now you can go and make more memories at your new school...

    Yes that is what makes teaching rewarding. Knowing that you are touching their lives

    Good for you Henry. It sounds like you have found your calling and are meant to be with these kids for life.

    Hope your next job finds you with as much excitement and love as this one did.
