After meeting with my thesis supervisor on Thursday, I did my oral presentation on Friday and met with the academic committee, I have been confirmed to continue in my Masters programme. All students at my institution must meet milestones periodically during the course of their studies. I get to do all this again in 6 months.
After meeting with my supervisor I came away with dozens of books (my luggage increased by 11 kilos (20 pounds) coming back to Papua New Guinea (good thing I only had 7 kilos in my checked luggage when I went to Australia) and articles to read. I see my free time for the next 12 months rapidly disappearing.
There was hexagon sewing on the plane, and in a few free moments while in Australia. The top itself is getting to big to drag around now, but the individual hexagons make a good travel project.
I added a few more hexagons to the quilt last night.
17 more to add to this round and then I’ll start squaring up. I’m making reasonable progress considering this is a queen-sized bed. For comparison, this is the last photo I took of the quilt.
Well, I’d better go and cook some dinner and tackle the mountain of dishes in the sink. I need to finish reading an article on Memory Theory after Gorgeous Girl has gone to bed. Then, if I’m not too tired I’m going to throw some fibre onto the spinning wheel and see what happens 😀 I have permission from Gorgeous Girl to remove her project (all 5 yards of it) from my favourite spinning wheel, so I should be good to go.
