Trying to catch up!!!

Oh dear, life is just so busy. I am embarking on a new adventure in my life and am totally consumed. I have decided it's time to leave the Primary classroom and create my own classes for adults.......what will you teach you ask???????.......well sewing of course!!!!!!! It is all very exciting and all a bit daunting too. I have been in the school education system all my life and now am entering the business world.....yeeks, so much to get your head around.......ABNs, insurance, business registration, a name for myself......etc, etc.......well I seem to identify with Shiralee Stitches now (Shiralee is the name of our beef cattle property here at the Clarence River), so I am now Shiralee Stitches in business name too. As well as lessons I hope to sell some specialist tools, and also some fabrics. I may even try my hand at putting a few designs down on paper....more on that later.......But. needless to say whilst my head has been in a spin, there have been deadlines to meet and I need to catch up.

My dear friend here has just emailed a friendly reminder about the nine patch swap......oops.......she will be surprised when I post the belated March ones AND the April ones too..........hehe.......

I picked up these fabrics from Kerry in Nundle recently, she has beautiful reproduction fabrics....




So March and April ticked off the list............

I hope you are enjoying great health and finding time to sew......
