Nostalgia

I just finished sewing on the buttons.

My best friend Alison is a 3rd grade teacher but last night I got to be the teacher and made her my student.  She came over with the intent of creating craft project but we ended with me teaching her how to knit!  I think she might have caught a little bit of the knitting […]
