Who said it could be August already? Where did the summer go?
I have good news regarding this fall - I have a new teaching position! I will be teaching Pre K - 8th grade music and it is a FULL TIME position. It is a 45 min. - 1 hr. drive one way, but with the economy the way it is, I am leery to pick up and move......especially if I do not have a job, or it is reduced for next fall. I may change my mind come winter, but for now that is the plan.
I did not want to have to leave my old position, but after being reduced to 3/4 time last year and looking at 1/2 time this fall, (and being treated like crap by the administration and school board) financially it just wasn't feasible. Oh, and get this - even though I was offered 1/2 time for this fall I have since been replaced by someone for FULL TIME!... i'm not bitter at all - grrrrrrrr.
Anywho, I am excited about my new position, and am looking forward to working with the younger grades. Unlike most H.S. students, the little ones still aim to please. Ahhh - what a nice change that will be :)
Now we move on to sewing pictures.
Here's another table mat. Same pattern and colors of the other one (diff. fabrics) that I had originally made for a gift. Now, I like them both - so I guess I can go "eeny-meeny-miney-moe" and give one away!
And, here's another purse. I love this pattern...I've made 3 already! It is easy, cute, and everything I need fits in it! Would you believe that it is made entirely out of corduroy? Yup, it is - working at JoAnn Fabrics over the summer has had it's perks :)
Well, I suppose this post is long enough so, take care and thanks for stopping by - Elizabeth
