So im trying to figure out how to modify the collar on this little lady. Hope i can get the help i need. Pictures should explain the issue better. Click to enlarge.
You know how you find yourself short on time and you wonder why, when you don't feel you do or achieve much? Well that's what im feeling right now.

Finding work has been my main priority  with Landscape Architecture jobs being a scarce item, ive been forced to apply for any run-of-the-mill admin positions. Anything! Just so i can get some money of my own and move out with the BF again. Also being able to fund my hobbies.

My dream of owning and living in a unit then, marriage, 4 kids and a house designed by myself  situated on acreage is a long way off.

On to more interesting things, i broke in my new Burda Vintage Modern sewing book and almost completed (could have finished 2 weeks ago but im a bum) a simple 1960s dress of purple and Asian print. Want to get done and finish the same style in bright orange and kaleidoscopic print before Friday 8th. In time for the Burdastyle Vintage Modern contests. Woot! Its always good entering online comps, keeps one active.

Im just beaten down by work and heat. Im inspired but motivation lacks.

But i must kick start myself soon as im going to be commencing study in Environmental Management. Yay! Have alredy started teaching myself Spanish (another delayed dream) and perhaps learning Piano. Anything to make my life worth while. Also to help my grey cells stay fresh and sprightly, despite another year older next month. Oh gawds i feel older already. 

Anyways, enjoy what little i have for you and till next time. Or as the ysay in Spain, hasta la vista!
I have the post holiday laze.

Started and finished my skull cross stitch, which I have thrown into the concept basket. This is on account of the size of the image and the threads being too crowded, making the fabrics I use too stiff for the intended aesthetics.

Will have to try again. But the Waste Canvas is awesome in its simplicity to use.
Mailman has been tardy on my deliveries but before departure to my holiday I got my cameos and spider fabric. Eagerly waiting to post up the pictures of my finished product. But here is a tease.
Short but i am attempting to catch up on my to dos so expect more to come.

Soon to come;

2012 has been something of a self learning-life experience the virtue of hindsight kind of year. But more importantly its been about finding my artistic roots again after the turmoil of University. Kudos to me for achieving this objective and boy how far i have fallen from my previous self confidence in my natural artistic gift. I bit the bullet and took a six month course in portraiture and something i wont regret. I learnt and found myself again.
