Yep this is the end…..Last Friday was my last day at work; I am no longer a teacher but officially a stay-at-home-Dad or House-Husband if you prefer! Lu, my wife, is returning to work after her 9 months maternity leave and we have decided that I will take over duties at home and look after our son Harry.
Harry was born with bilateral, moderate, Deafness and has been wearing Hearing Aids since he was 6 weeks old! Luckily I used to teach Deaf children and mum is a Sign Language Interpreter, so what better opportunity than to use my skills and spend time teaching him before he starts primary school.
OK I know I have to learn how to use the washing machine and do the cleaning but I am really excited and can’t wait to start my new task. I am hoping that it will give me a little more time in the sewing room too: Evenings won’t be filled with lesson planning but rather a few more minutes behind the machine. (Well I hope so).
So on to sewing….
Lu’s Hacking Jacket is finished. I am really happy and I think Lu is too. I went for a classical shape to the jacket with twin vents in the back, rolled lapels, pink lining and some lovely wooden buttons. Here’s a few photos.
