Week #12...

My Zakka project for this week is MUCH smaller than the project in the book!  The envelope/pencil wall hanging caught my eye the first time I looked through the book, but I simply did not have the time or energy this week to complete it. stick with at least a little bit of the project, and to recognize the start-up of the new school year -- I settled on making a pencil mug rug using the pencil blocks from the bottom left corner of the project.
The pencil blocks were fun to make...and I feel certain I'll eventually give those envelopes a try as well.

Fun polka-dots!

Pencils are sharpened for school.  Ready, set, go!  Looking forward to the joys and challenges of teaching in the year ahead.


  1. So cute! You know, as many times as I've paged through my book, I never noticed that cute pencil block. Have a great year at school, and enjoy your mug rug every day!

  2. So clever! Nice use of the pattern for another project!
