Hello friends, it has been a truly amazing week around here! Sometimes your life gets shaken up in such a way that you just have to sit down and hold on… I found out on Tuesday last week that I had been accepted into a Diploma of Costume for Performance – on the day that the course started! I applied for the course after the due date, so I thought I wouldn’t get in, but someone must have dropped out at the last minute because now I am a full-time student, sewing and pattern drafting and thinking about costumes from 9am to 4pm every day.
What do I do about my job? How to pay my rent? Will I still feel like sewing at home after a long day at school? It’s been such a culture shock going from a part-time, easy job to full-time study again. I am constantly tired and hungry from thinking so much. But all of a sudden I am doing something I truly love, and it’s fantastic! So I’m sorry for the lull in blogging, but Real Life has taken over for just a little bit. I did finish a bit of knitting that I have been excited about, the picture frame from Yarn Bombing that I have been coveting. I love the whole Victoriana/curlicue design thing that is going around at the moment and this is going to hang over my bed in pride of place.
Isn’t it great? Cables, mitred corners and a whole lot of awesome. Not sure about what picture to fill it with yet, though…
Soon we will be back to the sewing and the pretty clothes – I have a lovely mustard 30’s style dress I finished recently just waiting to be photographed. In the meantime – a whole new adventure! I can’t wait to dive in!
