Today I moved all of my sewing equipment, fabric, and everything sewing related into the upstairs storage area at Blackbird. It feels like a land of opportunity up there. It's great.
I think I have found my calling. And I only had to go 38 years, backed by a $20,000 student loan that resulted in a useless history degree, to figure it out. Had I not believed that I needed to go to college to get a good job, I could have taken the fast track to realizing what I really wanted to do. Oh well, I'm sure that history degree factors in somewhere along the line. Although I am no better at trivia because of it.
I like to sew, cook, and garden. I would like to get paid for that. I like to make stuff for myself and my family, because it feels good, and we need it. I would like to make stuff for others and get paid for it. Hmmmmm.....
I'm going to go ahead and make that dream come true. So, there you have it.
Andy is frequently asked by both boys to "cut little guys out of black paper". He has probably cut out 500 or more little guys. Some of them stick around for awhile, some end up in pieces, some get filed away. But they usually look something like the above figures. Knights, skeletons, wizards, and soldiers are in high rotation around here. I'll have to ask about the big furry guy. Maybe Big Foot? Oh, and it looks like a spaceman made his way in there too.
I got some carrots in the ground on Easter. We didn't plant enough last year. We ate them up quickly. I hope to see some little sprouts making their way soon. What are you planting more of this year?
