To list the major changes in no particular order:
- I'm engaged to Nick Austin, a pretty awesome guy who did my laundry for me the other day and even folded it! Wedding is set for August 18 and there's even a website for the occasion: http://www.SonjaAndNick.Weddings.com
- I have a new job working for Carter Smith, a shibori artist who specializes in artwear. It's mostly administrative, but there's fun stuff involved. His website is http://www.shibori.com
- Friends Fabric Art, ( http://www.FriendsFabricArt.com ) the cool fabric art store that my mom (Ann) and I started 4 years ago is moving from its storefront location in Lowell to the Western Avenue Studios building also in Lowell ( http://www.westernavenuestudios.com/ ). It is less than a mile away, but it's still a big deal. Thank goodness for the new dolly, because I really would not be excited about moving our book selection in particular. I love books, but they sure are heavy when you have to move a lot of them around.
In addition to all that I got to go to London with some college friends a few weeks ago. We had a wonderful time. My friends Sarah and Molly did most of the planning which worked out great for me. I'm still working on editing all the digital photos I took. The photo above is from Molly's collection.
