IF everything goes as planned - and this is still in the works but is looking good at this point - I will be spending four months in France later this year. When I decided to go back to college well into middle age, I figured why not go for the whole experience just like any other coed (wait, do they still say "coed"? I didn't think so!) So I am going to do Study Abroad to complete my minor in French.
I will likely spend the summer raising money for the trip by selling everything I possibly can. One connection I can make to sewing, I guess, is the fact that I sold my beautiful Centennial Featherweight.
Yes, this gorgeous machine has gone to a new home and raised just enough money for my application fee for Study Abroad (!)
So I'm not sure how much time I will have for sewing and/or playing with sewing machines for a while after I finish the Easter dresses. Final exams are coming up in about three weeks, then I have a visitor from France coming in June who will hopefully spend the summer getting me up to speed with my French.
I am no longer on Facebook so I am toying with the idea of another blog which will chronicle my adventures as a middle-aged student attending a French university... we'll see...
