Teacher Exhausted…

This is a craft blog, but I need to rant, please! Maybe it’s that winter never seems to end, maybe my students are getting restless, maybe it’s end of the semester, or maybe it’s the end of a school year,  but I am exhausted…drained…tired and need a reboot.

I have a strong pull and passion for teaching mathematics…I don’t care what type of mathematics, all mathematics…



Math and Pillows!

While taking a trip to the local fabric store in Valley City, I found this adorable math fabric by Moda!  I was thrilled to say the least!!!  Not sure what I wanted to do with it, I decided on the black and white design and purchased one yard.  I sat on the fabric for at least 3 months before I decided to make some pillows I’d use in my office.  I made 2- 14″ square throw pillows that I will use in my office on the chairs my students sit in.

Basic pillow formation here.  It’s an envelope style in the back.  Took about an hour from start to finish.  I have just a little leftover fabric so I may spruce up a couple hand towels for use at home with the leftover fabric. 

Just look at this fabric!!!  Completely “needing” out right now!
