Changes on the horizon...

Sewing has been a little slow around here!  There has been a lot going on and sewing has been put on the back burner.

The reason for this is that a few months ago we were advised that our roles were being made redundant so they could be sent offshore to India.  This left me with mixed feelings as I have worked and worked hard for the company for over 17 years.  Human Resources will continue to try and source another role for me until my finish date however I have been advised that my location, Brisbane, has no opportunities.

I believe that all things happen for a reason so I have decided to look on the bright side! I have wanted to go to University for quite a few years now but it just never seemed like the right time and I was always concerned about how to fit in studying full time with working full time.  So this has provided me the perfect opportunity to follow my dreams and do a Bachelor in Education focusing on Primary School teaching.

It has been quite some time since I finished Secondary School, actually 20 years, so I am completing a Tertiary Preparation Program so that I am prepared to start my undergraduate in 2014.  I have now started this course full time and there is no time for anything other than study and work.  Hopefully once I've finished work that will give me a little to sew again.

Now for a few picks of what I have done.

I need to sew these into blocks which will become the joining blocks of my Marti Michell BOM class.
I have 60 of the four patch squares and I got the middle squares cut.  I've sewn the flying geese, 60 of each combo and now I've just got to get the 2 flying geese sew together and then I can start sewing the block together.
