I can hardly believe it, a month or more has passed by and I haven't posted a single thing. But this time I really do have a good excuse, as my family and I have re-located to Jersey. Permanently. And we LOVE it. Here are a few pictures of some of the fun we have been having so far:
|Freya being buried in the sand|
|St Ouen's Bay - and yes it's as beautiful as it looks|
|Back home for a BBQ|
|Pete and Freya getting stuck in!|
So as you can see, there are a lot of distractions, (so many beautiful places to visit and explore) but I am pleased to report that I have resumed working on my coursework and have put in a fair few hours this week. I am currently working on a little file all about the techniques of applique, as part of module 3, and I thought it would be fun and slightly different to do the whole file by hand. I have really enjoyed doing the research, and I am even a member of St Helier Library, and they have a wonderful selection of books on all different crafts, which is very exciting. Anyway, here are a few pictures, in no particular order, of some of my work:
And even Freya has found time to tear herself away from the beach and get creative;
So the next few days are going to be carrying on with my applique techniques file and making the most of the bank holiday!
