Time to Come Clean

It is Friday! I'm so happy about this because all of a sudden my life has turned into a busy, working, exhausting, get up at 6am every morning, life. It has been a bit of a shock as I last worked in June last year. A good shock - I'm so very happy and pleased to be doing the things I'm doing at the moment, but there is a bit of adjustment going on too.

One of the things that I feel happening is this blog turning into a more day-to-day blog, rather than a cafty one. I guess that's okay, but I do want to get back to posting a bit more about my crafty work.

So, in the interests of full disclosure, and perhaps so you can forgive me when I stray away from fabric-y goodness (and believe me, it pains me too!), I thought I should just come clean about all the other hats I wear just now.

Not in any order; I'm teaching at a university, assisting a visually impaired student, completing *another* graduate diploma (in heritage studies) which involves *another* thesis plus more, working on getting my consulting business off the ground, completing a Certificate in Small Business Management (a requirement for the funding I'm getting) and around all that trying to find time to sew for upcoming market deadlines. Phew!

It is exciting times and I'm glad to be doing it all. When I left full time high school teaching last year I really was looking for more variety in my work and while it has been stressful finding things that work with each other and keeping a lid on doing too much, I'm really happy with how things have worked out.

As you can see, I have managed to do some more sewing here and there, but today, after I've done the reading for my class, I'm going to spend it sewing. Then I'll go and teach and after that, throw myself into the ocean. Can't wait.


  1. Wow you are busy! do you take a special vitamin you care to share with me that helps you get through the day? lol. Lovely cushions by the way :)

  2. Ha! No vitamins but no kids either, which I think is the only reason I can do all this stuff!

    And, having said all that, I'm still stuck at this computer doing things and haven't got to the sewing yet!!

    Thanks :)
