Doesn't time fly! In my last blog I was bemoaning struggling my way through my last assignment and now it is almost complete- just in time for Christmas thank goodness. My daughter has almost finished her mocks and even the puppy seems house trained at last!I intend to give myself a complete 'textile' break over the festive season and then launch into my work for the next Material Girls exhibition (October 13th -24th 2008) before I have to start into my last level 1 degree module in February. I think it is going to prove a busy year 2008 so I think a rest before the storm is exactly what is required now. So to all my fellow bloggers I wish you a Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year.

I have been working on my last assignment for this degree module and its been a bit of an uphill struggle but I think I may be reaching the brow of the hill now as I go onto creating samples for the final piece. We have been looking at own domestic environment - not my favourite topic as my inspiration tends to come from the natural world into which I escape given every opportunity- and it has resulted in an awful lot of soul searching about my roles within the household and the resentment I sometimes feel when my artistic interests have to come last. Does everyone expect me to become subservient to their needs or do I expect myself to carry it all to prove I can cope?

Finally I've managed to get internet access again but it may be short lived as it has been down all week! An engineer is coming out tomorrow - if he can't fix it I don't quite know what we'll do.
Just to say that the Material Girls website is finally back in action www.thematerialgirls.co.uk .
