WOW! It is mid-February already? Heavens. I did have EVERY intention of being back in January. But some things have come up and my computer time has been totally sapped. I have started teaching sewing lessons to a group of fun and eager ladies. The group consists of 8 ladies (2 from America, 1 from England, 1 from Shanghai, 1 from Russia, 1 from China, 1 from Germany and 1 from Belgium). They are all my friends..we all have kids in 1st grade together. We are having so much fun. I can't tell you all how energizing it has been for me to teach something that I have loved since I was 12! We have had 2 lessons and everyone has already made a handbag/tote. I'll tell you all more soon, and show pics of their projects. I'll be starting a second course for some of the teachers at the school--we'll be starting after Spring Break. Since the lessons are here at my house, I have been spending lots of time de-cluttering and organizing and getting rid of things we just don't need anymore. I need to purchase a bit more shelving for my sewing room and then will be able to finally show some pics. These weekly lessons will keep my on my toes with the organization, I hope.
Then I also got in a ridiculously large order of incredible fabrics that I need to photograph and add to the website. I may put some up on the Etsy shop as well. We'll see. I need to figure out what I'll need for sewing up clothes for the shop. Then I'll get going on stocking the fabric shop(s). I really wanted to share some pictures, but no time right now. My better half is at a conference in Venice, Italy. So I am single mamma for the weekend. We have a school play to attend this weekend and some play dates set up. So we'll keep busy without him around, but we really hate missing out on our family weekend time.
I have also been planning our Spring Break trip! We'll be heading to Greece. I am so excited--never been. We are at the midway point of our stay here in Germany, so I am trying to make a list of all the places I want to be sure and fit in before we leave! We had Portugal on our list, but could not get any good flights. We also looked into Egypt, Canary Islands and Italy. Everything is so close here. And many of these places would be too far for us to travel to for a short vacation once we are back in the US. So I have to start planning. Any suggestions?
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day. We'll catch up sooner than later I hope! :) And with PICTURES!! :)
