The image is of some of my embroidery done for the fashion project. It was based on peonies and took me ages to sew as I did it all by hand.

Hand in done so time to chill out and relax, well for a little while at least. Feels a bit weird not having any college work to do, but I do have plenty of other jobs to catch up on now I'm not so busy. Maybe I'll just take a leaf out of my cats book first and just take it easy for a few days, before tackling things such as the enormous ironing pile!!
Constable Burton Hall is the setting for these beautiful tulips. On a recent visit to the garden we were amazed by the amount of tulips and the varieties. I liked the delicate colour of this one called beloved I think (?) and the deeper shading on the centre of the petal, wonder if I could do a design based on these simple but beautiful flowers.

Hand in on Monday, so I'm busy putting all my work together today. Starting to feel a little weird that it's the last one of the year and that in a few weeks I'll be a 3rd year!
I have really enjoyed this year, there have been ups and downs, but on the whole its been a fab 2nd year of my degree. I wonder what exciting things are in store for us as 3rd years.
This is my design for this project, it's based on buildings around Newcastle and a mixture of old and new. I've had a great time taking photos of all the architecture and even sneaked some in from summer holidays.
