Back to Normal Life!

Finally my exam is over! I had a 3 hour calculus and algebra exam which went actually pretty well, so hopefully I pass but I don't find out until early January.

Which also means on the stitching front that I haven't don't done hardly any stitching for about 6 weeks while I was studying, though I have done a bit this week, but here are the updates anyway...

So overall not very much progress at all!

I also had the honour of modelling a dress in a fashion show for a designer friend of mine, her collection was Parisian inspired and my dress was called "Parisian Springtime" It was so much fun to be a model and Lucy (the designer) also does everyone's hair and makeup! She is one very talented lady. Here are a few photos of my dress, but I can't show any others as she is entering them in competitions so they cannot be publicly photographed otherwise they get disqualified.

In 2 weeks time I am heading to Sydney to watch the V8 supercar race which will be a lot of fun as I have a pit pass and I also get a tour of one of the teams pit area, and I also get to stay with my very good friends Erika and John who happen to be getting a new standard poodle puppy at the weekend as well! So I am looking really forward to my little weekend away.

Happy stitching everyone!
