and then it snowed some more...

it snowed. and then it snowed some more. it was awesome! i totally love snow. except when im actually trying get somewhere. i went home on Friday night for the weekend, an 80min drive north. it snowed Saturday night. and it kept on snowing! the local schools had a snow day on the Monday and no buses were going, same with Tuesday  but i needed to get to Dunedin for class! i managed to get a ticket for Thursday! and there was still snow on the way down! i managed to get to Dunedin nearly a week after id left! whoops. missed a whole lot of class... and had lots a catching up to do! ah well. it was fun to make snow angels!

I'm not heaps keen on group work, i like to do thing at my own pace, but i cant since there is a whole group and we have to work together. however its pretty awesome since its only a group of 4. actually i take that back... group work is pretty good. everyone does a bit of everything. and I've really liked working with other people from the rest of our design course. its great to get a bit of knowledge on how other people work. this is our exhibition... its sounding really great at presentations last Wednesday. cant wait for opening night! and I'm part of the publicity team, its been a fun ride... not long till its over

 check it out!!

am starting my final collection for showcase at the end of the year. very scary. however i do have a few ideas... am starting to pattern-make and toile now... getting exciting! :) my starter was a photo of my Mums grandparents at the beach in England in 1945. and i started looking into the Land Army Girls. really very interesting learning about them.
a few ideas that got me started and a bit of inspiration...

This is my Mums grandparents in 1945 in England
