The Beginning

Well, today I find myself home from work with a sick child. So, on this momentous day, I decided to start my own blog.  I am inspired by joining the Philly Modern Quilt Guild and reading, as well as hearing about Blogging at the meeting. 

I am 2 weeks away from taking my PhD exam, so I do not have a lot of time to post right now and in the same regard have not sewn anything in about 6 pretty pcitures to post.

I have chosen the name, A Small Oasis, for many reasons.  The primary reasons are as follows: I work full-time as a high school Autistic Support teacher, I have 2 children (Emily 6, and Jack, almost 4), I am getting my PhD, I teach for a local college 1-2 nights per week, I am the Leader for my daughter's Daisy Girl Scout Troop and I have been married for almost 12 do you see why I need a small oasis in my hectic life?! I am planning on starting to schedule in some time for me.  How pitiful is it that I just wrote, I am going to schedule time for me?!

So, in a nutshell, I am ready to begin my sewing journey once again!
