light in sight

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

tunnel

On my thesis. That's chapter seven (of nine) pretty much done. Two more to polish (they are basically done), then I'm editing the thing as one (giant) narrative, which I hope shouldn't be much of a job, as I've been treating it as a whole thesis for a while. Then, maybe (just maybe) I can hand it in.

thesis WIP (chap 7)

On the bleeding Muir I seem to have been working on for YEARS (well, since March). It seems like forever, as I had to frog a good four inches. I'm at the boarder though, and it's just garter stitch (with the odd picot) from then on in.

Muir nearly done

And, annoyingly, on my favourite jacket. I've had it for about nine years now, and have been darning and patching up holes for the last five. However, I fear it may finally be gone. I'm all about the re-use and re-cycle though, so I'll think of something to do with the fabric. Reconstructed denim is a tad too 80s-tastic though, don't you think? Idea ideas?

Whilst I get going with finishing all this off, I'll leave you with some pictures of pretty Yorkshire Sheep.

Great for your thesis! Again a little effort and you will be defenitively done!!

I had one jeans jacket like this too, it was my dad jacket in fact but i liked to wear but now i'm too fat to wear it again! *shame*

The yorkshire sheep are so beautiful! I really need to come in england to see your lovely grenn countryside!

hurrah for the end of the thesis. How about a sun hat for the denim?

Oh, you must feel so relieved to have written up most of your dissertation! Keep up the good work :)

Maybe you could use the denim to line a bag.

I bet you could make a pretty cute bag or a casual clutch with the denim jacket.

Why reconstruct? Think Sashiko and maybe have a look at one or two quilt blogs concerning that stuff (like Spirit Cloth e.g.)

And congrats to your thesis *s* I hope all goes well

You certainly look like a lot of things going in your life. I think one milestone you can consider was nearly finishing the thesis, except for the 9 year jacket. Well, I think the bleeding Muir can really be a big thesis help as it help you take away you mind of the thesis. Anyway, what happened to the thesis?
