This weekend we had our annual Jumble sale in the Kindergarten as a kind of fundraising for the social activities we organize throughout the year. We sold cakes and waffels and people had the opportunity to sell their 'jumble'. (God only knows why I didn't bring my camera). I was partly responsible for the organisation.
And being honest with myself I know the world cup hasn't boosted my productivity. Why oh Why do they all have to wait till the very last minute to score?? And why oh why do those games have to be on at such ungodly hour? (the Netherlands have been starting their games at 22:00 CET). I really thought I was trained in sleep deprivation, how wrong I was. But thank god next week it will all be done with, I am not sure my nerves can take it any more.
That being said, it in no way meant that there was no sewing. I had to get the teachers end of year gifts done. I had already decided to use Aylins Tutorial and they only really take 20 min to make, especially when you use an continueous zipp.
For my test model, blogged here, I used a normal zipper, but then I found this local shop called Staghorn on Dawanda and ordered a few contiueous zipps. So in between things I finished one after the other bag:
The Kindergarden/nursery has an 'open' group concept. In principle there are 2 groups, the green group (aged 4-6) and the red group (aged 2-3), but the children are allowed and very much encouraged to mingle. Only very few activities are done by each group individually. My girl loves hanging out with the big kids and so I kind of felt obliged to thank all the teachers involved since they all deal with her and she loves them all, hence 7 bags were needed.
Luckily I managed to keep up with Tula too:
