things to do

today is my second last day of work… which is just as well, things are pretty slow here and they really don’t need to be employing me. I don’t go back to uni in the actually having classes sense until the 19th (all being well if I passed the exam). So I should have some nice crafting time on my hands over the next couple of weeks. Some of which will inevitably be taken up by things lik...

the corset pullover…

is nearly done :)It would be done if I hadn’t made the responsible decision that if I stayed up half the night seaming it I wouldn’t get up and go to work in the morning.

re-design
