I have been slaving away for the last two weeks trying to get the paper work done for the liturgical embroidery course I'm taking through the Julia Caprara School of Textile Art in the UK.Seriously, I have been truly slogging it. One of the things I was asked to do was to make a technical handbook. This has been such a hurdle that I've procrastinated until the very end. I just had no idea how to go about it (and why) but I'm pleased enough by my invention of sewing four sheets of loose leaf together and using a binder to hold it all. Half the difficulty of studying by distance is figuring out what to do just from phone conversations and written directions. There are no visual clues (I mean seeing what others are doing and such). I'm still not done this part of the assessment and had better get back to it because the plan is to put everything into the mail tomorrow on our way to Alaska.
