I prefer online classes. It allows me the flexibility to study during my breaks and lunch at work. The big bonus is being able to study at home. I live in a quiet rural setting where there are few distractions.
I managed to get a priority registration for the spring 2016 classes. Added to my cart are (1) Intro to Computer Information Science, (2) Legal Writing and (3) Women in History. I would love to take all three but only one is manageable. Legal Writing hinges on whether I get an interview for a legal position where this class is a requirement.
My family shakes their heads when I tell them I am continuing on with my education. By the time I finish my bachelor's degree, I will be retiring (or so they say). I figure I will be seven or eight years older anyway. With continual learning, my mind is being challenged and I don't get bored. I am Learning Addicted.
My fashion analysis assignment this week is to act in the role of a designer, to visit the fabric store of my choosing and select a fabric. Then create a design around the fabric and take a picture to post. I visited Shop de Fabrique of Tami.

Next, select a pattern that is compatible with the fabric and sketch a design (I'm telling ya, I love this class!). It must be a new design, not one from your portfolio. Take a picture to post.
My design is loosely based on the Vogue Pattern of the Day. I wish Vogue dated their patterns, especially this retro one. She is the latest in my batch of thrift shop acquisitions.
I wrangled up these fabric remnants for a thrift shop $5. The polka dot print alone is six yards in length. It will be perfect as a backing to my daughter's log cabin quilt I hope to finish before Christmas.
My Countdown to Christmas begins in 20 days. I am working on a low pressure linkup - at the very least a parade of Ugly Christmas Sweaters!
