Each scarf was given to the teacher with this note:
Dear Ms. Rita and Ms. Becky:
These scarves are your Christmas present gift from me. My mommy made these scarves for you for Christmas but finished them later than expected. Nonetheless, I want you to explain to you the meaning behind the patches used for this patchwork scarf in hopes that you can see how much you mean to me.
The red patch is for your energy and ability to keep up with me all day long (especially since I only take one nap a day).
The yellow patch is for your sunny temperament which really makes learning a pleasure.
The green is because I am little sprout and your nurturing helps me to grow each day.
Blue is for the way you shower me with encouragement and love.
Most importantly, your scarf has a patch of hearts on each end to remind you that I love you, not only as a teacher but also as my friend.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Pictures of Bri modeling the scarf were enclosed.
It's just a small, small, small way to say thanks.
