Over the last two weeks I have met up with some of my C&G friends, both from Ashington and Durham. I now have to decide whether I will carry on with my studies next academic year. For those reading who don't know I have completed my C&Gs Certificates in Design (Embroidery) and (Patchwork & Quilting) - 4 years study part time, with one year out to rest. Last year I started the Diploma course but for lots of reasons decided to take a year out this year. I've really enjoyed the freedom of doing my own thing during that time. However I only have three years to complete the course so would have to complete next year. Can I do it - yes - if I restart my studies NOW. If I don't then all the work I did last year will be wasted. I do enjoy parts of the course and have learned an awful lot from doing it. I must talk to tutors about this as I am torn.
Sorry for the unburdening (? is there such a word?) I just find writing my thoughts down helps.
