First beach glass score of the season!  Found at the beach at the end of Seaward Avenue, Ventura, California.  The day is clear and beautiful and it feels like summer is in full swing.

Close up of part of the Contemporary Boro jacket from Jude Hill's online class....Should I call it "Retirement"?   I have used scrap from long ago projects, sale remnants, woad dyed fabric, antique boro squares, linens, woven cloth and 1920's quilt blocks.

Text Addition to Last Post

The pictures on previous post are of my jacket made in Jude Hill's online class (Contemporary Boro). I spent  this last week putting it all together and it is wearable...but needs much added decorative stitching.   That will be done over time.   I am very pleased with the almost final result but am not pleased that I couldn't figure out how to add this text to the pictures in last post!

Retired at last!   After 35 years of report cards, meetings, yard duty, discipline, testing, grading, listening for bells, tying shoes, suiting up and showing up I am DONE.  Now on to Grammiehood, sewing, crafts, painting, beach glass, reading, travel, tea shops, thrift stores and relaxing.   Hard to believe it's really my turn.   Let the good times roll........
