August 15, 2010

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?

Saturday August 7, 2010

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.
