One of my goals for this year is to complete my City & Guilds course Creative Computing in Stitched Textiles - I am on target to do that. I also plan on making good progress with my Quilt Judging course. Although I made a start on that before the turn of the year I am focusing on it in earnest from now. I was spurned on this morning after receiving an article on Copper from my closest friend Marion. We spent an afternoon chatting last week and I was telling her about my Research Project - Copper. Coming from South Africa she looked out information from me on copper mining. The kick start I needed.
Another goal is to participate in the final year of the Journal Quilt project. Details of the challenge should be posted soon. The small format is ideal for me when I am busy with my teaching etc.
Together with personal goals that should be enough to keep me busy.
The Fast Friday Fabric Challenge quilt it finished. I layered and quilted it this morning. Having a deadline is good as it stops me from procrastinating. Not that I do that very much. However, I can work away getting a quilt top finished but when it comes to deciding on how to quilt it - that's when I stop. Having a deadline means I just get on with it - good or bad at least it's done and I always learn something even if it's what NOT to do!
Anyway I am off to do more research on copper and find places to visit - a few distilleries are already on my list!
