My clothes sewing has taken a serious dive but I have bought a couple of courses on Craftsy & hope to do those within the next 6 months! I gave up the teaching as the paperwork & frankly the attitude of my last teaching observer made me despair. I don't see how a class of mainly beginner sewists should be expected to help one another with a new task (ie putting in a zip) while I do paperwork. Surely as the teacher it is my job to teach. So a difference of opinion was the final straw. My students backed me all the way. They were a lovely group of ladies & I hope I have inspired them to continue sewing.
I do knit although that too is on the back burner until the lighter nights as the current pair of socks is a darker yarn that my eyes do not like in artificial light.
My other half is recovering from an operation on his foot & pardon the pun but he is under my feet while I am in the house. Not much longer hopefully before he is back at work. I work full time & getting up earlier to walk the dog combined with taking him out last thing at night is beginning to tell.
I love the photo below of my beloved Dad who died nearly 14 years ago. That's my daughter with him - she's now coming up 27!
Dear son has left school & started a college course, but has managed to fail his English GCSE a second time & he really needs a C not the D he managed again or next year will be a difficult one for him & therefore us by default!
