You could all be forgiven for thinking that my New Years Resolution was....'to stop blogging altogether'....far from it.
A little while before Christmas I was presented with a teaching opportunity which I couldn't resist. Some of you may or may not know I am/was a primary school teacher. And those of you that are/were teachers will either know exactly what I'm talking about or will think I'm utterly bonkers.
Suffice it to say it's mornings only, until July, so I thought I would give it a go and see if I could maintain a burgeoning little sewing business and a teaching career at the same time. The lack of posts will tell you that the answer to that question may be a resounding NO! However I have had a lot of setting up to do and I'm hoping that sewing time which at the moment is at a premium will happily fit into a weekly routine at some stage. I do miss it so!
Happily though, on Saturday morning I was able to sit down and sew. I'm currently working on a slipcover for an armchair and a few more kindle covers - can the world ever have enough?
I was thrilled with the way the covers sold at Christmas and some of the feedback was just lovely. It's what we need occasionally isn't it.... bit of a boost to make us think we're on the right track.
So forgive me if my posts may be a little spasmodic for a while and I know I've got a lot of catching up to do with your lovely blogs. It's fantastic that I have a couple of new followers too, welcome! Of course that takes me up to the big 100 so I shall be organising a little giveaway some time soon.
As it's Handmade Monday time those wonderful Handmaidens of the Monday variety will have been strutting their stuff again so I shall be keeping a keen eye on Wendy's blog for more gorgeous makes and useful hints and tips this week. Her business continues to go from strength to strength.
So all that remains to be said is a very belated very 'Happy New Year' to you. Let's hope it's a good one for us all.
