A Quickie

I know what you're thinking, but don't get any crazy ideas... this is just a quick little post.

First, to say thank you to all who left comments about my last night/early this morning post. I truly appreciate your concern and advice regarding my daughter's bullying situation. To keep you updated: I decided to step out of my comfort zone and take matters into my own hands, so I spoke to the three main players about their behaviour (with a colleague present at the time). I don't know if it will change the way they treat others in the future, but at least I got the message across that the school, and I personally, will not tolerate bullying in any form. All three apologized in person to my daughter and the nasty comments on Facebook were deleted, at my request, by the owner of the page. I will follow up by advising the administration and the school constable, mainly to cover my butt and to have it on record just in case it ever happens again. Again, thank you for being so caring and supportive!

Second, Codi at Death by Denim was a late joiner to the Whirl into Winter Giveaway. There are still a few days for you to enter her draw. She is giving away the cutest little apron patterns, as well as some fat quarters, a couple of quilting magazines, and some surprises. It's definitely worth checking out!
Take care. xoxo

I didn't have any words of wisdom about the bullying but I'm so glad you took action. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your DD that it won't happen again.
So what is your next project going to be??

I'm glad your initial step seems to have worked and I hope those bullies don't act up again. GOOD thing to have had a colleague present when you confronted them so you have a witness to exactly what you said, too. I saw Codi's giveaway and entered. She is also one of my PIF people! I'm now trying to decide what I'll make for each of you....difficult decisions here. :)
