New year new course

ex 2 Filling in with straight stitch

I have undertaken to do a Creative Machine Embroidery course for 2011. Once again this course is through SWTAFE Warrnambool with Karen Richards being our teacher. The course is available on campus and off campus and I have the opportunity to do a bit of both, so I don’t have to freak out if I don’t get to classes. Just hope the self discipline part of off campus studies doesn’t do me in. The above image is a sampler that was required – FILLING IN WITH STRAIGHT STITCH.

Our weaving group was hoping to continue this year but due to TAFE restructuring their fee schedules, this became way too expensive for some. I am still hoping to weave in some way or other this year.

Life’s little surprises.

I was all over the place for most of January. Discovering something lumpy in my breast and then getting the diagnosis of cancer.

February was the month of tests, scans and surgery.

March has been quiet, getting ready for April and chemotherapy. I have no idea what that will entail.

However, I do want to get back into blogging so we will see how that goes…
