Borealis Friends Baby Afghan - The Bidding is Open!!

Stop in at Borealis Yarns in Saint Paul
and place a bid on this darling baby afghan
made by Borealis Friends to support the
Maxfield Learning Center where I teach!
(Opening bid : cost of outfitting one student
with a new uniform and miscellaneous school supplies.)

Abby and her friends are also creating a
large afghan for the December Show!
Make sure you get there in time to see it
(and maybe buy it - it is going to be spectacular!)

Get in to Borealis Yarns (corner of Thomas Avenue
and Hamline Avenue - St. Paul, MN) and
consider raising the bid on the afghan by
the price of daily snack ($1.85 - $2.25.)

Thank you Borealis Friends!!

Friends of Borealis Baby Afghan - Yummy!

Wow! Items have started to arrive for the
2009 Nettie and Friends show and Sale...
Abby, owner and knitter extraordinaire,
called me Wednesday night to tell me the
"Nettie and Friends Baby Afghan" was ready.
I got myself right down there to see this
yummy, delightful, sweet blanket.

Here's the deal... soon, very soon, there will
be a 'early bird opportunity' for you to bid on
this blanket to benefit the Maxfield Learning Center...
We'll have the details worked out soon, and I'll
let you know all of the particulars by Sunday or Monday!

Stay tuned!!

This Week at Work...

Those of you who know me, know I'm not a good 'sitter.'
Last week was the opening week for teachers in St. Paul.
That means a lot of meetings where people talk to you.
I'm not a good 'sitter'. I squirm. I fidget. I look through
my bag. I doodle. I make lists of things I need to do, both
in my head and on paper. I think about songs that won't
stop going around in my brain... they worm into my brain and
even if I 'sing them like Dylan' I can't make them stop...
Sooooo, I decided to knit during the meetings and here's
what I completed. I have the scarf to finish, but everything
else is DONE. (No, these were not on my 'unfinished list'!)

Tuesday, the students arrive... the best part of my job!
Have a great Labor Day, everyone. Be well. I'm looking
forward to my week. Nettie

Harry Potter / Snape and a Catchy Little Video

If you are a fan of Harry Potter and Severus Snape,
there can be no doubt that this video will get stuck in your brain.
Let me apologize in advance.

I've got to learn how to embed these things!!!

Have fun. I'm off to work now.
