Home, Home on the Range…….

Hello A-Team:

You are about to enter your final week of the Fall 2014 semester. Remember: Jeanne is calculating the CAV attendance. She is now the instructor. I am still doing the grading. I have some final pictures of your projects. BUT….not all. Without the pictures, your grade won’t be spectacular. Go to class. Send your pictures to me via email. Thursday, January 22, 2015, is the last night I can accept them because the semester ends……………

The attached picture show acknowledges my gratefulness for things I never expected. Becoming ill is not an ending. It is a new beginning. Here is a quote from someone “unknown” that says it all: Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain. Trust me, I will be teaching the first day of the Spring semester. I do not know the prognosis or the course of action. I will find that out later this week. Rest assured, I will be on the blog letting you know. I already bought my ‘Save the TaTas’ tank and tee shirt in support of this movement.

It is from the National Sewing Circle which I joined because Tiffany did. I thought it was a great way to learn technique.
