August is always my favorite time of the year. I enjoy new pens and pencils, shiny new pencil holders, backpacks with no crumbs. I guess it just makes sense that I am restarting AGAIN in August.
I started at Quilts Bayou in August of last year. Long story, but we are forced to close our doors at the end of this August, I will mourn the end of my job, but I will rejoice at the new friends I made. Angela: coffee swilling, creative, super quiet but amazingly sweet. Daisy: loud as me, equally creative with the best laugh EVER. I can’t imagine not seeing them 2x a week. These girls gave me some sanity last year, and allowed me to sew without it being a chore, despite it being a “job”. Thank you, girls.
So what do I do now? Well I hope to finally get those patterns made. I hope to diminish my UFO pile. I hope to continue substitute teaching at the local schools. I hope to watch my Freshman cheer at games, my Middle Schooler sing in her choir, and my boys trying not to kill each other. I hope to spend more time with My Husband. Lord knows I ADORE that man.
I hope to gain a few customers and make them happy with T-shirt quilts or custom orders.
I hope to enjoy our goats, train the dumb mutts, and hopefully not loose any more animals to old age.
I hope to get this house back in shape, and more importantly, KEEP it that way. There are a lot more to this list, but this is a good start. LOL.
I also hope to get back to a blogging schedule. Even if it IS only about the goats, or the kids. I have plans for the one milk goat, and this is a good platform on which to talk about her! LOL. Want a hint?? BATHBOMBS!
Thank you for you patience over the years. I really hope I can stick to it this time…..
