We set off and made it almost to the halfway point when we lost the serpentine belt. For those of my friends back east it is hard to picture just how empty our roads can be so I will post photos. It was noon and the temperature was approximately 105 F (40.6 C). the towing company told us it would be 3 hours before they would arrive for us. Not one to waste a minute I got out my knitting!
We are back home and not anxious to head out of town anytime soon! By the way the photos are looking east, west, north and south.

It is still HOT here in Yuma, in fact it is hot enough that we are hosing down our old horse every hour so that she will stay cool however I have to get busy making samples for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas for upcoming classes. It is hard to think of brown, orange, red and green when the weather outside is yellow, blue and other summer colours! keep on watching for the first samples.

I hope to have photos pretty soon of a project that one of my students has been working on. It is a pencil skirt with a twist. it is an ambitious project for her and so we are both anxious for her to finish it up. In the meantime, I am getting my fall classes set and making up some class samples.
I just finished this bag- A duffle bag the perfect size to pack for a long weekend away. It will also stow quite nicely in the overhead racks of a plane.

I will be offering sessions in blocks of four two hour weekly classes for $120.00. The first session will be available either 6/11, 6/18/, 6/25, 7/2/ or 6/13/, 6/20, 6/27, 7/11 from 6:30-8:30pm. They consist of "Getting To Know Your Machine" with all its options and feet as well as completing a project of a simple skirt, drawstring pants, a non-tailored shirt or possibly a simple dress. Future classes will move on from there and may also cover beginning quilting and home decor projects as well.
One thing about offering classes from my home studio is that is will force me to be neat and organized!

Beginning this month I will be teaching some classes at our local JoAnns. That will be a new adventure for me. I am looking forward to it and have a couple of people that I know waiting to sign up for one of my March classes already.
2012 was a year of change for us- Brad retired after 34 years with USDA, we cut back on some of our volunteer hours with several local organizations for various reasons and I left my part time work for the Humane Society. So here's to 2013- may it be happy and healthy.
