Perseverance and Resilience - A Quilt Series
It's been a very, very busy three days. It's been a year since our last 3 day ep (blame the Rugby World Cup for that) and I had forgotten how full on they are. Great, but super-full on. Kids don't leave at breaks - they want to keep working. That doesn't happen ever during regular classes!
Anyway, by the end of the three days 8 quilts are finished and 6 are nearly finished. Most of the children hadn't done any sewing since Intermediate School four or five years ago. They found handsewing the binding on the most challenging part and it took them half a day to do it. Huge perseverance and resilience.
If you want to see more pix or read what some of the children wrote, here's the blog.
