I love the postie
I love it when the postie brings me parcels at work. My students were so excited about the mystery package. I let a couple of the boys take off the outer plastic bag (man those things are hard to open!). They were having so much fun, that I let a couple more open the cardboard envelope...ripped apart like you wouldn't believe...and inside what beauties! My students were nowhere near as excited as me - go figure!
We did then use some of the fabrics for an impromptu maths lesson on measurement (which is really funny when we use metric and the U.S.A. uses imperial, so I was doing this weird kind of quick conversion between the 2 and I think my students all know what a fat quarter is) and decided that the nice folks at Hawthorne Threads cut their fabrics generously.
Now if I could only find enough time to put these treasures to good use...
