All finished

I have completely finished all my study and have left tech, a week early. Everyone else is still there till the class officially ends on the 27th November. That night we are all going out for a class dinner. And then the week after is Graduation night.
A year has gone so quick. Now I'm in the market for a job :) Got a couple of interviews coming up. If nothing eventuates, I'm not too concerned, I will just go back to tech for another couple of years to get diplomas in management and business.

So now I can knuckle down and stitch (finish my Christmas ornies, start something different too) and get in the garden - my plants are fighting the weeds. And lose some weight, which I have put on sitting on my backside all year in the classroom.

A quick note

Only 2 more weeks of tech left for the year. Over the past month I have been full on with study and now I am in the midst of assessments. The stress levels are high. It will be a good feeling to finish up and be able to do some of the things I enjoy - the garden is looking like a forest and there hasnt been any stitching for quite some time.

To celebrate my impending end of study I have ordered Bent Creek Snappers Branch. I have admired this from when it first came out. I loved it more and more when each new part came out. I see there is a Christmas one available now too.

My DH brought me a new camera the other week. A much bigger one that what I ahve been using, so thats another thing I am looking forward to doing when I have more time. I am just in the process of sorting out my photos that have got places in competitions throughout the year, for the big end of year championship next month. I enjoy entering the competitions and I learn so much from the comments made by judges.
