After lots of discussions between Jim and I, we’ve decided that I would be quilting full time after this school year is over. I’m so excited and a little scared at the same time. I’m currently an Educational Asst. in Special Education for grades K-4. It’s a very challenging job, but the rewards from the kids makes me go in and do it everyday. This change is something that I’ve been working towards for the past couple of years. I’m very excited and ready for the new challenges. I will be substituting to offset my quilting until I get busy enough to rely on it all by itself. I’m looking forward to being able to get to some of the quilt shows outside of my area. Jim’s looking forward to being able to get away for mini vacations. I would love to be able to go to the Huston show. I’ll finally feel like I have time to work on some of the projects that are swimming around in my head.
I’m on spring break now, and I’m planning on getting some of my quilts done. I think I may even make a spring purse. I bought this fabric at my local quilt shop yesterday. It’s some Amy Butler fabric that I’ve had my eye on, but I didn’t know what I would do with it. Yep, definitely a purse.
