Did you miss me?
I know, I know… I have been MIA for many months now. To be honest. my mind has been elsewhere and I have been incubating some new (non-sewing) creations. I haven’t really sewn much at all, but I have been very busy making things. Here’s a pictorial rundown of what I have made since November.
I’ve taken up knitting again. It started up with a rush job to knit Jack a hat on our way to Aspen for a ski trip. I ended up making four hats from the same pattern I found on Ravelry. Here are a couple pics…
The hats got my knitting mojo fired up, so I thought I’d try my hand at knitting socks. I’ve a lot to learn about stripe matching though. :/ Here are Jack’s “weekend” socks (he won’t wear them to school).
And I have already started another pair for a friend. Here’s the first sock. I’m already 3.5 inches into the second sock now.
I took a Mosaics class and made a few different projects for it.
Right now I’m working on a large scale project, a 3×6 ft mosaic patio table for my parents’ house. Here is a picture of the center medallion in progress. I hope to finish the table in the next couple of weeks.
I’ve even turned Jack on to mosaics. We made a sun catcher glass on glass mosaic for his nanny back in NYC. It’s her birthday this week.
So my big news is that I will be teaching at my local community center starting in April. I will teach a nine week sewing class to 1st – 5th graders and in June I will be teaching a sewing camp for a week. I’m very excited about teaching and am so happy that our community center is such a great place for the kids to go to after school and that they have so many great programs for the kids. I’ve already planned our projects/syllabus and can’t wait to teach!
My little sewing student that I have been teaching privately will be joining me for the class. Here are some of her latest projects:
Last night I made some bibs for one of the teachers at Jack’s school who is expecting his first child this week. Since he’s a science teacher and runs our Lego Robotics program, I thought space themed fabrics were a propos! 🙂
I have been so busy with my class and life that I have not been reading many sewing blogs lately. I miss you guys! I hope you are all well.
