I wonder if she would grade me?

Brown Nose? Me? Noooo!
As you must all know, it is the end of term and the end of the school year. Bella bee has had the most fantastic teacher. It's not much for all her hard work, but I wanted to get something to say thankyou and show my appreciation. I wanted to get her something original, rather than the normal chocolates and flowers, but it's tricky to get a gift for someone who you don't know personally and don't know their taste. I've made a couple of cushions lately, as gifts, so thought that would be ideal. The cushion cover itself is made from a fleece blanket. The motif is taken from this book. The lettering is Times New Roman. All appliques are ironed on with bonda-web, then hand stitched around the edge with very small slip stitches. It takes much longer than machine stitching, but I much prefer the result.
