What I have been up to

This is card weaving. Something I learned back in high school 
These are just test pieces to get back in the hang of things. 

I was telling my girls about it and about all the different things we learned how to make. I still have many of the things I made those years. I had a great art teacher. Mrs. Levine. She taught art through all my elementary year and high school. I only had a different art teacher in middle school. I started wondering about her and Googled her. :( sadly she passed away a few years after I graduated high school. Amazing woman she was. My junior year she left for part of the year to fight breast cancer. She asked me - me out of all her students- to help the sub art teacher to teach her students. Mostly it was basket weaving and bead making. I was honored then but of course looking back I realize how much of an honor it was. 

My thoughts are with you my dear art teacher. Your memory lives in me with all I learned and still make and in my children who I have passed your teachings in to. Where ever you may be - Thank you

I love the card weaving, Q.

What a nice tribute to your beloved teacher to pass on the skills you learned with her to your children.

If there's a funeral home guest book online, why don't you leave a message like the one you wrote here to let her family know what a influence she had on you and that you're passing it on? They would love to know that, I bet.

smoochies to all
