The Hand and the Glove... ramblings about making.

04.01.08 - Christmas Vacation

I was home for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year and it was lovely to have the time to settle back into life in Cumbria with family and friends. Walking the dog across the fields, gathering firewood, cutting back brambles and that sort of thing mean a lot to me.
Some weekends during term it’s difficult to switch off from College, so the longer break allowed me to change gear a little and see the project in perspective. I think it’s essential to be able to step away from time to time.
Having said all that I spent a substantial part of the break writing up the Context section of the thesis. I feel quite happy with it so far, knowing that it is a useful starting point. I’m sure some revision will be necessary, but it’s one of the more demanding parts of the thesis so I’m pleased to have got it to this stage.
