If you look, you can see that there is a large mirror suspended from the ceiling in the classroom. It's a Home Ec room, so this is used for food prep demonstrations, allowing the students to be able to see the counter top from their desks.
You know me... Photo op!! : )

That's so neat! There you can see the cool fabric colours on the left and the warm fabric colours on the right. the middle boxes are full of embellishment odds and ends (yarn, ric rac, tulle, dryer sheets, buttons, sequins).
With the Hot & Cold theme, I also had some templates available. They are all still 4x6" postcards, but with pieces chopped out.

Everyone finished, but this next photo was a bit premature. The participants were asked to add more in the way of embellishments with the afternoon theme. Here are some of the results...
Here is a great example of the use of yarns, both in the composition and for the border as well!
|Hot Cocoa on a Cold Day|
Notice that she used hot & cold for the subject as well as for the choice of fabrics. : )
Oh, and check these out!
|His & Her Mittens|
Aren't they adorable!? These were made by Audrey, the woman I billeted with. Good gosh, she is creative. Coincidentally, she happens to sell dried flower pendants & jewelry at Handmade House! She is also a seamstress and a great photographer. You rock Audrey.
And here is the last one I'll show you. Pretty cute!
The funny thing is that I was assuming it would be winter by now, but it just hasn't happened.
Thank you so much to the whole class in Foam Lake! I had such a fun day with you all. One participant won the draw for a postcard to be mailed to her from me! : ) I mailed it off this week.
