Ah, study! I am now coming to the end of first semester of my Textile Design and Development qualification. And - wow - what an amazing journey it has been! In many ways it feels just perfect - exactly what I am passionate about and interested in, and also it challenges me, stretches me, and is helping my skills to grow!

It is so good to look back over the past 14 weeks and to see all the new skills I have obtained, the projects I have embarked on, and the new things I have tried. I really do love learning - though I also find it a challenge at times, which I think is why I appreciate and value it so much.
