I've been very busy....


For the last few weeks I've been making up pencil rolls,33 to be exact!

These pencil rolls are going to be given out tomorrow at the grauation ceremony for the ones graduating from kindergarten to school next year.I can't wait to see the looks on their faces when they open them up :)
I'd also like to thank my sister Anne for helping out with the final 1/8th" seam around all 33 of the pencil rolls.Thanks Anne,the help and motivation was very much appreciated XX

What a great idea - I was trying to think of something I could make for the kids for Chrismtas, I might have to follow your lead! ;) Although I don't know if I could pull off 33, you are an ambitious woman there. LOL* ;)
