Running to keep up

This blog is a very good indicator of the state of my mind. I've been absent from my blog for a long while, but here in spirit. Similarly I have felt all year that I am absent from my own life: full of intention, meeting all my obligations, but not actually there in person to experience or enjoy it. Making any sense?!

I take random photos of things I'm doing, such as making date flapjacks 

with the full intention of blogging about them.

Here is lemon posset, this weekend's offering. So easy to make:

And here is Janet Crowther next to her fabulous work at the Ramster exhibition:

What a dark horse, not telling us she'd entered it!!

I have so many projects on the go I can't keep up with them. Here is the beginning of a secret project, deadline for June, when I'll show you more (admittedly not very exciting here!)

The classes finish this week, so I'll be able to share their fantastic work soon. And we have a mini class exhibition/open day in June (still to be arranged, no. 492 on the to-do list) so more photos then.

 Exam season is also upon us, and as I am now one of the senior exam bods, I am a bit preoccupied with that. I do get to boss other invigilators about, but the pressure is on me to make sure all is proper and correct. As I am usually given the smaller exam rooms but the naughtier students, this all feels a bit precarious at times! Sometimes the time drags, but sometimes it is lovely to have the headspace. The only problem is, I can think about all the other things I need to do, but not be able to do any of them!

I promise to be back at the end of this week with more pics of student stitchery. If not, know that I am here in spirit!
