I'm getting ready to retire from 23 fabulous years of teaching. My friend Mandy made this wonderful collage for me titled "Dulcy's Freedom." Mandy is artistic on many levels, but when it comes to baking no one can touch her! A great day at school is cupcake day. That's when Mandy brings in gorgeous little cupcakes that look more like tiny treasures than food! I've got her rug hooking now, and she's already designing her own patterns. I'll post her current hooked piece when it's done (well, that's if she'll let me....ok Mandy?).
