A to Z(ed) - here I come!



In April I am going to participate in the A to Z blogging challenge. I am Canadian so let's all practise pronouncing it A to Zed, shall we?

Today is the day we announce our theme if we are going to use one.

I am.



When I graduated my Grade Eight class in June of 2012 the class presented me with a quilt. I had taught this same group of children since Grade One.

Throughout the Grade Eight year the students and their mums met and made quilt squares depicting different events in our eight years together.

There are thirty-six squares.

I will tell you a story about each one connecting them with the A to Zed theme.

I have wanted to blog about this quilt (which I sleep under every night) since I received it.

This challenge has given me the perfect opportunity.

Please join me on April 1, for post one, A = Advent Apple.

I will be linking to other blogs in the challenge so I am certain it is going to be an awesome month.

And a special shout-out to my blogging buddies, Wendy of the Rock and Edwima's Episodes who are joining me in this madness!

  7. A quilt is a truly special gift. I can't wait to hear about the squares and the memories that go with it. How nice to be able to have a group of students for that amount of time!
