Saturday September 25, 2010

What a beautiful day in Santa Cruz. The sun is out and it will be a warm day. Trying to decide what to do today. I should get busy and do a clean up of the sewing area, but I have a hard time getting motivated to do so when the sun is out. Maybe I'll wait for a day when it is a bit gloomy.

There is a 6th anniversary party at one of the shops that I like to go to in Marina, about 35 miles from me. I may decide to take a ride and get in on the bargains that are being offered. Thant's all for now.

I finished several small shoulder purses. I'm working on doing some projects using original art and transfering onto fabric, then making into small shoulder purses. I have pictures at the bottom of my blog. Make comments if you like.

Today I will be getting back to my real love, making clothes. I started out doing this back in the sixty and seventies. I made all my work skirts and loved evey minute doing so. I made ties and shirts for my husband, clothes for my little girls, costumes, and an array of things for the home.

When my girls were in elementary school and in the scouts I started a group of girls wanting to earn their sewing badges. It was so fun. Several of the parents asked if I would continue to teach their girls to sew. Why not? I was a stay at home mom and thought I could earn a litlle extra money. I had so much fun. I continued these classes (2 to 3 days a week) for six years.

What's next for me? Who knows?

Today is a new chapter in my life. I am currently in a position to pursue my creative projects full time. No longer am I workiing two days a week, so I need to find a way to connect with all the fun and creative women that I met in my years of working in the shop.

What a different feeling not to have a schedule- no where to be at any certain time. Life in continues to change as I continue to grow. I am certain I can find what I am looking for if I continue to search.

My new finished projects. A couple of totes and an eyeglass zippered pouch. A little fun stuff. I really like to combine sewing and embroidery along with a little quilted look. More fun today.

I've been working on a couple of projects. I spent most of the day yesterday working on quilts. I have promised myself to make a quilt for each grandchild.
