Tucker still loves to sew, and for along time now, he’s been working on making a quilt, out of the scraps from my fabric pile.
Well, at his school, they have an art’s program called Reflections, where the children are encouraged to create a project then submit it for a contest.
This was enough of an incentive for Tucker to work hard and finish the quilt he’s been working on for awhile now.
Of course it’s full of more robots, and space stuff. That he carefully crafted. He loved this long one.
My favorite was this black square and
this arrow robot.
Here he is with the quilt on awards night.
(Wishing I would have gotten a better shot of the whole quilt. Live and learn.)
Everyone who participated got a ribbon and prize bag. Tucker was thrilled with this.
The children returned to their seats, and then they announced the winners of each group. We had been talking with Tucker before this event, about how lots of kids had entered, and he might not win. We wanted to prepare him, just in case. He was nervous.
We just couldn’t have felt prouder of this Talented amazing boy.
We love you Tuck!
In the next month or so, his quilt will be entered in the State contest. It will be fun to go and see what other children have created, and what is on display. Obviously, more pictures to follow!
