Reading time

I’ll looking forward to catching up with some reading – I’ve so many websites bookmarked that I’ve not had chance to view properly. Then I’ll delete a lot of unnecessary clutter from my computer – images I’ve had on since Access in 2006. Once I’ve sorted all of that out I think I’ll be ready to move forward.

My next little project is another postcard swap organised by Shannon Ganshorn I’ve been sent the 10 names and addresses so I’ll be thinking what to do over the next few days.

BUT first – a reminder about the Degree show – private view on Friday 8th then open everyday 10-4 until 14th June at University Of Glamorgan.

In the afternoon went to a street party to celebrate the Jubilee – it was lovely seeing young children taking delight in simple party games.

My stitch is a reminder of the incredible fireworks, fireworks stitch.


Checking what I have to do

I think I’m nearly there, almost ready for my degree show at the University of Glamorgan.┬áMy portfolio is as finished as it can be. Until my work is installed I can’t take the last two images to insert. My business cards are ready in their box. The 152 knitting needles have been made. The rest of the students have done a great job with the poster – thanks ladies & gents!

All my strips consisting of 7 daily pieces are sewn up although I’ll have 2 and a bit to make before the deadline on the 31st May.

I’ve yet to put the last touches to my workbooks; remove the flaking emulsion paint from my hose and use spray paint instead and lastly work out how to suspend my work. This problem has taken over on my wittering stakes from my essay. I fretted over that for weeks and now my thoughts are constantly on the problem of the ceiling I have to use. I’m frustrated that my space won’t be ready until the 24th May whilst I see others who have all but finished installing their work as they are in different rooms.

I have no idea why ‘barred knit’ jumped out at me, maybe for its simplicity as I needed to knit a mindless stitch this evening.
