More Baskets and a reminder

Hello everyone!  I'm sorry I have been so quiet on here, but I started a new job.  Last week I got hired as a part time reading teacher at a local Christian school here.  I am super excited!  That means I am super busy trying to get ready for school to start next week!
Don't forget to vote today over at Lily Pad Quilting.  I have entered the cats on quilts category (#6) which you can see here, and the cat themed quilt category (#54) which you can see here.  If you like my entries, please vote for me!  You can vote here:

A week ago I got several more basket blocks from the Sew Sweet Bee.
These two pink ones came from Pam Kitty Morning.  She said that she did not like the first one, so she made a second one.  I think both look great and will use both of them.
 This pink one came from Amy at a Quilting Sheep and she also sent me a sweet charm pack!

 This last yellow one came from Heather at Vintage Grey and she sent me a sweet fat quarter!

I love how all of the blocks I have been sent have had practically the same fabric on the baskets!  I am loving them!

School starts next week so I am going to be super busy getting my classroom ready.
I hope ya'll have a great day!

Oh I am so excited for you! My mom was a teacher that specialized in reading. When I was a kid up until I was in the 20's we ran a special reading program during the summer for kids who were behind.

I love those basket blocks. Reading teachers are the base of learning. Good for you.
