Dear Mrs. Westing (and blog readers)….
Way back about 39 years ago, I was in your first grade class. Remember me? I was the girl that you gave a “U’ to for not using my time wisely. Even though I was only in first grade, my mom explained to what a “U” on my report card was. She said that the “U” meant I was not working as hard as I could and that sometimes I must be goofing off. I felt horrible Mrs. Westing. I thought you wouldn’t like me. I decided then and there that I was going to change my ways….Just to show you what I do with my time now, I am enclosing a few pictures.
On my Wednesday my husband and I traveled to LaCrosse so he could go to a doctor appointment. I brought with three work baskets.
First I ripped off the newspaper from my triangle string blocks.
Then I pinned #4 strips to #5 strips for my Perkiomen Daydreams quilt.
Then I pinned #3 strips….
While I was waiting in the doctor’s office I cleaned my purse and tallied my receipts.
When hubby was shopping at a “guy” store, I walked one mile. See Mrs. Westing….I have changed my ways. I now use my time wisely.
Thanks for reading my letter and thanks for setting out good work habits for me to follow the rest of my life…
This is the truth. My first grade teacher did give me a bad grade for not using my time wisely. That has haunted me for years….now I make the most of time. Before you go, make sure to check out the Quilt Square Quilt Along…I hope you join us!
