Well, for a woman who spent a lot of the morning thinking about all the times she screwed up over her career, and deeply missing her Belle-puppie, the day turned itself around really well!
This weekend, Garth and Pierre helped me get the last of the warp on the back beam...kermit flail! Yesterday I started threading heddles, a job I truly love. I should be weaving by the end of the week. This morning we had mid summer crits, which went really well. I am inspired by the other residents! Holy Bovine! You guys have to come out for our show, there are some impressive artists working with me. This afternoon, I continued threading heddles, I am now at the half way point...
a little film, by Pierre, of me threading. Yes, they will be that tightly packed when I weave, the thread is that fine. Tomorrow I will continue to thread.
Tomorrow I also meet with Dr Randi, getting started on the thesis, or at least back on track with it. My brain has been wandering, so I need to get focused again before I lose momentum and wander off completely and do something else. Though the work of one of the jewellery residents had me thinking Punk jewellery this morning, safety pins and such...
I got home about 330 to a phone call from Gary at NSCAD. He was now allowed to call and offer me the job teaching Fashion Construction this Fall. So exciting! I need to be in that studio this winter, getting inspired and working on all the fashion ideas that I am going to have whilst studying Punk. I already have ideas...a new collection of clothes in in the air, I can feel it! I wonder if I can do that as part of the thesis paper???
So I am not a hack. I have what it takes to get a job in my field, a good job! Whoot!!!
