This is the new pattern I'm teaching to the kids to make at the Wisdom Arts Club. At first, they were intimidated, but after thirty minutes or so, they were all getting it. It's interesting how anxious students get when faced with a new challenge. I'm seeing myself in their reactions. Teaching is such a learning process for me.

The combination of red and aqua is making me so happy.

Edited to add that on this day, in 2006, I wrote my first post. It has a photo of Felix running with the wind.

it's good to learn new things. otherwise the class is just babysitting. learning new things builds confidence. and who wouldn't feel happy about being able to make such gorgeous flowers even if it was a struggle to get there.

the smiles on their faces are priceless, the joy and accomplishment. i love how different each hat is, an expression of the individual. go, teach, you really have given these kids an invaluable way to express themselves.
