Throughout the year there were times when I did not know whether I was coming or going. I did not reach all of my goals, but I don’t care! Through out the year, some of my goals changed. And I am comfortable with that.
In 2011, I attended Grampians Texture for the second time, and am excited about returning in 2012. Once again, I went to Quilt Camp with Mrs Martin’s. I regularly attended both my Embroiderer’s Guild Guidance group and my sit and sew.
At school I took my middle school boys out to the inter campus and then inter school cricket. Unfortunately, we came a cropper at our first inter school match. But there is always 2012. These boys are good cricketers, and I am proud of them. I assisted at my second Debutante Ball, having a fantastic time at the 2 different balls at the end of September. I had an interesting first semester, teaching textiles for the first time, sharing two classes – again for the first time, and teaching Year 12 Further Maths for the first time. I had hoped to get a couple of 40+’s from these students – two students really deserved them, one in particular. But they got 39 and 38. But I was able to successfully pick the order of my top 5 students. And I am so proud of everyone in that class. Well done to each of you for persevering when the times got rough.
On the needlework front, I often found myself in front of my school books with a pen in my hand, when I would have preferred to have a needle in my hand in front of my hoop. But I am still so pleased with the finishes I had this year...
Finally, blogging – I am so happy that I went to Nuffnang Blogopolis this year, an am really hoping they will do a repeat in 2012. I will be there. For, if nothing else, Blogopolis spurred me on to blog regularly, and ultimately, to take the chance and do the Decor8 Blogging Your Way e-course.
Yes, it has been a great year, and I am excited about the year to come…
