It's finally finished


(Click image for close up view)

My final piece for my NCFE Level 3 Creative Textiles course is now finished and submitted. I have to admit, the last few weeks I've done little else and I've actually grown to really dislike the end product. And if I don't stitch another bead in the next six months I won't be unhappy.

All that, together with all the paperwork that has to go alongside the piece, has meant I've decided not to take my tutor's advice and embark on the two year C & G Level 4 course come September. I may reconsider in a year's time but for now I'm fed up to the back teeth with form filling, client briefs, 'evidence', aims and outcomes and want to work in my usual spontaneous, fairly unplanned way for a while!

I was lucky enough to get a place on the Jan Beaney/Jean Littlejohn five day course in October at www.masseriadellazingara.com which I'm looking forward to immensely and have already got my name down for a course at the same place (doesn't it look divine) with Maggie Grey in May 2010. Those, some online courses, Festival of Quilts in August and Ally Pally in October will suit me fine for a while.

So - now I'm free to do as I please! Watch this space .....
