Ahem, hadn't really planned to stop blogging for 6 months, but somehow it happened!
So what's happened since my last blog post?
We moved house - while the move itself was urgh, I love the house. Especially having an open fire <3
I'm still designing - mostly for a magazine on a no name basis, so they don't need to credit me. I did submit to Knit Now in the last call though, and so you'll be seeing a couple of designs in the spring.
I'm still teaching - my regular Mon & Tues night sewing classes at Kingshill House in Dursley started this week. Due to a computer glitch, the classes were listed as full before they actually were, which has meant that the class numbers are smaller than normal. So if you want to sign up, there's still time!
I don't have many knitting & crochet workshops signed up yet, but I expect there will be plenty of them this year too!
And to keep things interesting, I've signed up with a temp agency that specialise in providing teaching assistants for Special Educational Needs. I don't like to feel too comfortable with what I'm doing, and so this should spice things up :)
In September, I went to Chicago to see my Uncle inaugurated as the President of Illinois Institute of Technology - impressive, huh? The ceremony was inspiriational & it was lovely to have a family meet up that wasn't a wedding or funeral. I also fell in love with Chicago, and would love to go back and spend longer there. It's a really exciting city.
There are interesting things coming up - I'll be able to tell you more soon, but my first sewing pattern is going to be on sale soon - and if you are going to Unravel, you'll be able to see it :)
So I'll try to avoid another long break - see you soon! xx
