Along with the blossom blooming on the trees, I have been sweeping away all the cobwebs that have formed over the past year.
The studio is almost back to its former glory. It feels as though its been asleep for a whole year. At last I have removed the mess created by having taken on a bad job, which if I could write about how to sack a bad client I would. But I put that down to a really good lesson learnt. And take heed never start a Job without a down payment.
As a bonus I found my Oyster card which I thought had been lost a year ago. Lets hope it still has money on it to take me on my planned travels around London next week.
Time passes pretty quickly when you have a full time job, especially when you are trying to squeeze too many things into the small snatches of time that are left in-between.
My webpage seems to have been having a facelift for a very long time. However the same could quite easily be said for me. After what has been a year full of upheavel and heart ache, things are moving in a new tragectory, a good and positive one.
I have passed my QTS tests and will be embarking on my PGCE this September. Becoming a teacher is both a daunting and exciting prospect.
It is a decision I have definitely not taken lightly, and was once swayed away from it by someone who probably ment the best for me at the time, but now is not that time and as all callings in life teaching carried on calling me.
So the big question is what do I do with this blog now? I think the best way forward is not to end up boring the pants off people with how hard the process of becoming a teacher is going to be etc..... And to my prospective students now reading this well hello congratulations for finding my website.
What I do know is there will be a stronger focus on fabric, sewing, making, hints, tips and instructions.
Possibly in time pride in exhibiting the work of my pupils.
