Celebrations...for loss.

this weekend a wonderful woman passed away. the only person who never got my sister and i muddled (we pretty much look like twins) i shall miss her interesting describing skills conststing of "wotsits" and "do-das" and "thingames" among others. its a shame i lived the other side of the world. i wanted her to be at my wedding, to meet my children, and show them all her world, where she bought up my mum and her sister, her tiny house in Bristol, her smaller than our front lawn garden. i shall remember the fun memories I've had in that house with my own sister with fondness.
 I'll miss you Nan. xxx

well hello there stranger...

Its been a long time... too long in fact. now I'm going to try write here once a week. at least!
This week is my first proper week back at Polytech...  an so far it has been pretty good. (in saying that Ive just realised its still Monday. still day number 1!) last week was a group week, where the brief was to "reinvent" denim. by using the pairs of old denim jeans given by an op-shop! in teams with fashion students of all years, 5 of us came up with this design "A Day at the Races" 
it was a great 3 days working with some unexpectedly wonderful people!
