|a quick blurry pic during the first day of school|
i met an amazing family this year, that has changed me. truly. i have so much to say about them, that i will have to post again soon just to touch on them and the affect they have all had on me and my family just know that you have brought me JOY, Young family.
i started teaching sewing classes once and awhile at this amazing shop. i'm grateful for the friends and my man who encouraged me to step out and do something i love. it's been so fun... but i'm not sure it's for me yet. i guess it's easy to get down on myself, thinking i'm never prepared enough, i forget things my students remind me of, and i'm not sure i can compete on a emotional level with the caliber of woman from up on the 'north side'... nor do i think i want to. there are a few that are passionate like me, then there are some that i believe are learning to sew, to add another 'notch' in their thin designers womans' belt. anyways....
speaking of that fabulous love of mine, here are a three of my all time FAVE projects i have worked on since my last post...
a birthday gift i made for my sister... wrapping is fabric and mod-podge on cute little box
|this is a small piece of birch bark. the holes were made by a rascaly woodpecker. i found it in a special place i love in wisconsin. i found two, so my sister and i have matching necklaces. one of the most meaningful pieces i've made.|
|my all time favorite 'kellie' bag.... 'cause it's actually mine.|
