About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

I haven't really sewn much this week, so nothing new to mention here. Just some items to note:

Went and spoke with the local school superintendant about teaching. I have to apply for alternative certification and the agency handling that won't have another class until September. So I don't know if it will happen for the upcoming school year.

We are exploring alternative sources of income as we cannot survive on one job. Today's cost of living is not allowing it for us, and we are not extravagant people. I just have to make do the best I can for now until a position opens up and I am certified. I need to finish some of the dresses I made up for sale, but have little motivation at the moment. I don't know why, the mojo is stalling... I think this could be a good part-time income, too.

It is so hot here, too...

At least we have had bits of rain lately...

It's been raining down there? Here in S.A. the sun is blazing!!! I'm staying indoors, lol. :):):)

I hope everything works out for you. :)

Many hugs, and best wishes,
