The Laurel Dress

I woke up today thinking about the Laurel Dress by Colette Patterns. Earlier in the year, I made this dress and found the pattern to be simple and easy to follow. There are a ton ways to customize this pattern and even a free Digital Ebook with instructions for different variations.

A few things...

Let's see how many times I can write "few" in this blog.

It's been such a hectic few months and I haven't written a blog since May. I guess a few months isn't too bad. If you are curious about what I've been sewing or doing on my vacation from work, follow me on Instagram @bettinadanger! Leave a few comments!

Baby Quinn's Quilt

A few months ago my mom requested a quilt for a baby boy. The quilt is done, the baby is born, and I am finally getting around to posting a few photos! I'll share the best photo first...

Power of Ten Quilt

I am convinced that right now is the BEST time to be a math educator!

I don't know if you have noticed, but the subject of teaching mathematics is certainly in the spotlight as our state and national standards have changed. This makes me incredibly happy because it is the perfect opportunity for everyone to learn more about quality math instruction. Teaching math is different than what we might remember from our experiences learning it. Teaching math is also different from being "good" at the subject. And, if you think you are "bad" at it...I have life changing news for you: There is no such thing as a "math gene" and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
