Project for the Hubby!

 Things seem to stay hectic around here for two old retired folks!

 Did I say retired? Well, it seems my husband is going back to work in August as a counselor in a private school in our parish. 

 He is definitely tired of teaching, but this seemed to spark his interest so he accepted. 
 I think I am sort of glad as he will be gone 4 days a week which will free up my time to sew more! 
 However, it does put a kink into a few things that I depend on him to do, or rather, things that we like to do together. 

 So he will be in an older school, and his office is the old book storage room. He has been picking up a few things here and there to decorate with, and also bought some drapes - all by himself!

 He asked me to help with a sign for his outside door. The hall is dark, and the wood is dark, he remembered we had an old mirror we'd bought a while back. We had already painted it to hang on the back fence - lime green! His school colors are blue and gold, so he sprayed the outside gold, and I embroidered what he wanted on some blue fabric.
 It was easy to do, and all I did was hot glue the fabric to the back of the mirror. 

  I think the students will be able to find his office! What do you think? LOL

The door sign will work out perfect. I hope this will be a good change for both of you. It is always good when there is more sewing time in your day.
