Life is getting busy in the next couple of weeks.  I homeschool my children, but we are trying an online charter school.  That means that we kind of need to follow the school schedule.  I'll understand more details at a required orientation meeting next week.  And then the first day of school is September 6.  I do see that many of my friends across the country have already started sending their kids to school 2 and 3 weeks ago.  I just couldn't bring myself to do that.  August is still summer break!

This week I interviewed with JoAnn's Fabrics to be an instructor for their classes.  They were very pleased with samples of my work and pretty excited that I could cover nearly all the fiber arts - sewing, quilting, crochet, and knitting.  My background check went through pretty quickly and I'm going in tomorrow to talk to them about upcoming knitting classes they'd like me to teach.  Time to remind myself of the different cast on techniques!

I am finishing up my 6th bookcase quilt of the year and have one more on tap after this.  I have had a couple people contact me about making one, but sometimes that doesn't turn into work.

MOPS (Mothers Of PreSchoolers) begins in 2 weeks.  Thankfully, I have a great team that will keep me on track during the year.  Even so, there is a lot going on and I am going to really need to keep on top of it all.  I'm working on creating a personal and family schedule to help keep us all working on the necessary things so nothing is overlooked.

Things my be getting busy, but life is good and I am blessed!

I am going to be creating a YouTube channel and would love your help to get it going. What I need from you is input. Do you have questions about sewing or quilting? Are there frustrations you have, tips you'd like to learn, things you'd like to know in general? Or maybe you'd like share a challenge or a general comment with me. Send me a message or even comment here. Thank you!!
 ps.  I know I haven't been very active here on the blog.  I'm in the process of figuring out the best way to do work, family life, and extra activities.  But I hope to be more active here, soon!
