April and Spring is here

Posted by Sunny Chandonais under: Life .

It has been a year since Ron’s shoulder surgery, and he is almost all the way back to normal.  So that means we will have lots of projects:  re-siding the workshop; putting sheet rock inside, building a shed for the boat, cutting up trees that fell during the winter.  Not to mention all the mowing and cleaning of streams.  But almost all the snow has melted, save a patch or two in the meadow.  The birds are out in force, and this morning I heard an osprey bawling me out.

Ron has been away for two weeks and I have been “hibernating” in my sewing room doing lots of projects.  I am also taking two online classes:  one in drawing using a drawing program and then turning the output into an embroidery design, and another on embellishment, using a needle punch machine.  The latter is being taught by an instructor in City & Guilds (a very well-known school in Great Britain) and I am excited about it.  I am also learning how to make lingerie – starting out at first with a camisole and panties for Raven, our little granddaughter. Here is a link to some of my sewing work:  http://tinyurl.com/d2snlm
