Who can tell me which fantasy saga I've been listening to on Audible from the title to my post? If you know, comment below.
There's been so much going on since I last posted way back in September. I'm back in college for the City & Guilds Level 2 in Creative Textile Techniques, and it's already half way through the first term. I've been putting together my portfolio of samples for the Line module, and I've just got to write my conclusion and evaluation. I chose to use Zentangle patters as my design inspiration. The possibilities for developing designs from Zentangle are endless. The only restriction is having enought time to create everything I have the ideas for. It doesn't help that I also signed up to do a level 1 NCFE in Patchwork and Quilting. Although the class is only two and a half hours there's lots of samples to complete. The way adult education is funded makes it virtually impossible to run leisure courses, as the cost to students would be prohibitive. As a result the classes have to have a qualification, which means completing portfolios. All I really want to do is go along and sew a quilt, but that doesn't fit the regime. At least I'm learning lots of new skills.
My shed is really making it much easier to complete all my coursework, and I can do some of the hand sewing when I'm sitting with my feet up.
