OMG!! Apparently it really is the 1st of October today! Where is this year going?? I think it is passing so quickly... but hey I would think that as remember I have no actual concept of time! ha aha
I have been doing some thinking.... about me and things I would like to do... do you want to hear what I have decided to do? Its really quite exciting.
At my 'ripe' old age .... I have decided to go to university! Seriously....
After thinking about what I want out of life and what I want to do with my time, I decided I would like to do something that I love and am passionate about. So the course I am going to do is called BA (Hons) Textile Design.. and its a 3 year degree course.
I have looked into it lots and know I will really enjoy it... I have to apply through UCAS, a central place where I put my application together and then it goes to the university. My application has to be in by January 2015... as I am planning to start September 2015. As I have hinted that I am no spring chicken I can apply under the grounds of a mature student :) There is also help with my SpLd's, a lot of help actually. And as my short term and working memory is really awful I am thrilled, no over the moon that there are no exams! Its all based on work done and constantly assessed.
The college where I live is having an open day for the course I am really interested in on the 24th and 25th October and I am really excited about that! I can ask a heap of questions and see previous students work.
I guess your all wondering what I want out of this? Well as you all know I really do love experimenting and trying new things. I really love the idea that I can design and make my own fabrics... then create things. Just really exciting... and I love to learn. I dont think I have finished with learning as I missed out on so much of is as I was not understood as a child with my SpLd's. Time to make up for it now! I will keep you all posted as and what happens.
So on the stitching side of things what have I been up to?
I have been plodding on with my Country Cottage Needleworks design called "Be Thankful"... its almost finished. I only have the top section to do now.
Here is where I am now.
The lighting is all wrong.... I took it not so long ago..so that means after midnight! ha ha ah a
Yes :( Looking at the clock on my PC I see that it is 1.01 am! ha h ah a I dont plan these things, it just happens. And well Jon does not help as he is an insomniac!
More stitching tomorrow... I hope to finish it... that will be nice :)
Then ooooohhhh.... wonder what will be next?
I have a new Round Robin partner, but as yes unsure what to stitch.... all I know is that it is to be on white evenweave and the stitch to be garden/flowers. Interesting..... I cannot wait to see what I come up with. I think I have a lovely design picked out... but not going to start it as I dont know what my partner likes.. you know regarding colors and designs. All is well as I have communicated with my next partner... just waiting to hear what they like now :) I love taking part in the Round Robin, its been a lot of fun and I cannot wait to 'make' something with all those wonderful sheep everyone has sent me :)
Ok... I am going now!
Happy stitching and smiles to you all....
It just occurred to me.. I am going to bed now but some of you are just getting up or been up a while! How cool is that! Totally awesome and really hard to get my head around!
Till later xx
