cant wait to start sketching with my needle

These are some images I took whilst in Paris in February. Hopefully if time allows I may have some sketches next week  either with a pencil/ pen or if I'm lucky with a needle and thread. I just love the detail within them, I am truly inspired. I hadnt fortgotten about them just never had the time to look at them. But now with college finished and what looks like time on my hands I can start sketching and designing and do what I do best embroidery.

new project 39-45

Here are some of my primary and secondary reserch for my next project 39-45.
I chose this because I began my degree when I was 39 complketing it age 45, but as I love concepts and stories I hope to include inspiration from the years 1939-45. However I am aware this will need to be done with the utmost sincerity.
The type of things I want to take from that time are personal stories and testomonies such as remebering their homes or objects they loved, their wallpaper or painted walls, their furniture, clothes and accessories, even uniforms. Rather than focusing on the painful memories of war and detrimental loss.

As a student 39-45 I had a specific birthday, I remeber certain clothes I wore and even completed my dissertation on objects within my home and their meaning to me. As a result of contextual studies I now look at architecture and design with fresh eyes. I look forward to any comments you feel willing to give me.

Student of the Year for BA (hons) Textiles and Surface Design

Thought I would add this since I have uploaded a photograph of myself on the very night I received my award. I am not photogenic but this photo will always hold such happy memories for me.

what a weekend

well this weekend has been rather strange. I found out it is extremely important to ask people if you can mention them if ever you are featured in a newpaper article. Life is a learning curve and this is something I had not thought about, but will never forget if it happens again.
The second thing I found out was I am featured in mewspaper articles in Australia, America and London. This was a complete shock. Although it is the same story nonetheless its bizarre to see my name come up on google. Something else I have found interesting is many people have viewed my blog over the last month but have not left any comments. I value any feedback I can get
My final finding is no surprise that nothing comes easy in life, we all have to work through the bad times but that family, friends, collegues and evaluations are essential for discussing things through to get to the bottom of them.
Ymay also have noticed I HAVE FINALLY TAKEN THE PLUNGE and posted a photo of myself. I am not photogenic as this images proves but yes this is me. Look out for me at New Designers. After six long years of hoping and wishing I could one day get there, I did. I set off tomorrow with nine fellow students. Good luck to all of us.

where have I been?

First of all apologies to anyone who has looked on my blog since march and found it has not been updated. As student of the year for BA (Hons) textiles and surface design  2012, I have spent most of my time completing my final major project, going for an interview with Fitriani and setting up my degree show, which I now have images of. Let me know what you think.
