Whew. It’s snowing here today. I’ve been gone for 3 weeks and now I am home, slowly recovering from a complete change in my environment, my solitary personal style and occupations.
My being away completed the break in the jobs I was training others to do. I am finally freed from all the administrative duties that have occupied me for so many years of working for my HusPartner. I am free falling. I’m not sure if I’ll look for a job. Maybe.
I have no routine to fall back into. It will be some time before I have the structure of daily “have to’s” built back up around me. Ah so, what will those routines be? I am not sure but I hope they are completely devoted to my own life with colored thread, fabric and yarn.
First I and HusPartner flew into Palm Springs to spend New Years Eve with a few of my family members I had never met or hadn’t seen in many years. So many things to talk about and to share. So many tough things, so many easy things, so many things to process.
Then family all left me alone for a day and my new roommate, Georgene, moved in. Here’s proof she really did work in the evenings after class…
I had never had a sewing teacher other than my mother. The workshops were extremely intense and we worked hard.
Vionnet Draping Class with Sandy Erickson January 3-8, 2009
Couture Tailoring with Claire Shaeffer January 9-14, 2009
Very interesting, very intense sewing and design time. Very intense time with new and old friends.
It provided a great break from my old life, and evolution into my new life.
