My last two weeks have been completely taken up by essay writing...no fun at all! Except that it was...sort of fun haha! I was working on original artifact research and got to work with the curator of the museum...we looked at accession files, did a couple of oral history interviews, etc. So it was really cool to see how the museum does things and handles artifact research for new exhibits, while also fulfilling a huge requirement for my last unfinished course of the semester: a 4000 word essay on an unresearched artifact. Done and done!!!!! All that's left to do is my footnoting...so I'm feelin pretty good today :-)
Onto some stitchy-ness.....well....there hasn't been any. I haven't started working on any of my December goals yet....but that changes today! I'm so excited to be done with my school stuff so that I can relax and only worry about work, running and STITCHING!
Holly and I are taking a trip to Oshawa later in the week to do some Christmas shopping there and I hear there's a pretty decent cross stitch shop there...so it's on our list of things to check out. I'm hoping they'll have some nice kits and patterns for me to add to my Crazy January Challenge. The Michaels there also has a whole aisle devoted to cross stitch, so that's on our list too. Unfortunately the Michaels here in Peterborough fails epicly at this- all they have is floss. So hopefully by the end of the week I'll be a little more organized with that! And I'm heading over to Rose's next week and she's going to help me with my quilt binding, so that'll be another check off the old list :-)
