Today marked the end of an era in our family. My youngest, Joaquin, had his very last speech therapy lesson with his teacher, Miss Lisa. She's not really a 'Miss', but that's what everyone calls her:) We have been with her for over 2 years now, and it was a very bittersweet last lesson. We are happy that Joaquin has progressed enough to be released from speech, but we will definitely miss our Miss Lisa. So of course the occasion needed a quilt.
If you look closely you can see some words I quilted in the background.
They are words that Joaquin had to practice over and over again for homework...C-C-Cloud, L-L-Lion, and the one that was hardest to shake, and he has only just fixed, "Miss Wisa"!!!
Miss Lisa loved her quilt, and I am really digging the resemblance!
OK so I got the eye color wrong, but the rest is from memory. When I showed it to Joaquin this morning and asked him who he thought it was, and he said, "Miss Lisa!!!", that's when I knew I had done something right!
Miss Lisa, thank you for all you did for Joaquin - we will miss you!
