Boy, do I feel like…

…I’m revisiting my college days. Finishing papers in the wee, dark hours of the morning.  But I did finish  the next step of my ANG Master Needle Artist program, which required me to do an open book test, covering different areas of art, stitching and color theory, some charting and submission of my needlework samples.

And the good news is I made it. I sent in the whole thing just before my deadline. Could I have done more? Yes. The topic was so big and there were so many areas that could have been related better to needlework.   But I am pretty happy with what went out…my only major regret was not adding more photos, but I was trying to keep the size of the file manageable.

One thing I will share, in case anyone out there is thinking of pursuing this designation:  The woman who chairs this program is terrific.  I have had to put submissions off several times because of things like heart surgery, deaths in the family…all the parts of life that seem to interfere with avocational activities.  However, she has been supportive, has truly tried to keep my application open and I really appreciate her encouragement.

So…now I wait and hope that I will be invited to continue!  Hope with me, won’t you?

I think I need to go to bed now.
