Back to school
Today is the first day back to school for the teachers in my district and I am not joining them. I was a Special Education Teacher last year and decided that after three years and countless numbers of children (overloaded) that I need to take a break and try a new field. I know that this is not the best time to change careers, but I really had no choice. I needed to leave. I still have the ability to substitute teach (no pressure)and I will until I get myself another job. I am sad because I miss my co-workers, but I will move on. The children do not return until Sept 8th so my three are still at home to keep me company. I hope that I can get a job soon after they leave because I will be bored. I cleaned up my fabric from boxes and in storage bags and I have found that I cannot buy another piece of fabric until I sew something in my stash. My stash is beautiful and I need to use it. I have organized everything. I am going to make a list of my patterns and organize them. I will try to sort out my next project. I think that I am going to try to make a suit. A 2-hour jacket from a MacPhee pattern or Simplicity pattern. Then I will make a funnel neck top to go underneath and find a good pattern for a skirt. I will post information as I go. The material is a polyester material for the jacket and the skirt(gray). The top is a lavender-purple color. If all goes well it should be very pretty.
