Remember the class I did in Ballan with the kids. During the week one of the assistants (mother’s) sent me an email:
“I know we gushed and gooed on the day, but L and I just can't stop talking about your Sally class - we've both been thoroughly inspired! (And we've become great pals with V and E too...bonus!) L has done a little bit more machine sewing but she's just pulled one out of the bag with some hand stitching. She designed and stitched this little number between 3pm yesterday and 10am this morning (taking out eating and sleeping time etc...) and she was dying for me to email it to you!”
How is that ? Miss L is a total darling and was one of the least experienced kids in the class, and look at her now. She is a rock star.
Every time I think about this, I get a big goofy grin on my face. This teaching kids gig has to be one of the most rewarding things I have done in ages. I just want to lean into that photo and give her a big squeeze ! Miss L is coming to my next Ballan class in July and I can’t wait for a bit of show and tell so I can see her work in the flesh. She is a delight !
Would you believe I have two new patterns ready and finished….they are just waiting for cover photos. I need the weather gods, the time management gods and the photography gods to all smile at the same time and they will be finished….
Be well my internet friends, I have been missing you.
