My Dear Students
Those of you who know me well, know how much I have been enjoying the teaching since last Autumn, and how much I love my students. On Thursday it was the last lesson before a little Easter break and my birthday. They had each made me a stunning card, all very different but beautiful, and Chris had made me a green corsage (which I am wearing at the moment with a green cardi). They gave me a gift token for our new local craft shop and took me out for lunch at a wonderful carvery! I felt overwhelmed with their kindness and generosity. Even if they had forgotten my birthday completely, they would still be very dear to my heart. We all look forward to our Thursdays together, and I love their enthusiasm for crafting. If I analyse it, as well as enjoying their company, the most rewarding aspect for me is seeing them come to enjoy crafting as much as I do, and seeing how much it has brought to their lives. It helps us to forget our problems, and gives us somewhere to go to in our heads, involving colour, and sparkle, and pretty things, instead of worries. I promised when I started my blog I wasn't going to be slushy and sentimental - so I will just say a Big thank you to Kay, Jude, and Chris!
