Oh what fun – not!

I’ve just had a letter from the hospital informing me that my long awaited operation will be on the 6th of December! I will be really glad to get it done but now I have loads to organize before I go in,  mainly Christmas!

I will also be unable to lift anything for the few weeks and don’t think I will be able to machine stitch for a while either, so I will have to get as far forward with samples etc. as I can beforehand. On a brighter note I will have plenty of time to put some effort into catching up on the research side of the course which I must admit I’m a bit behind with still!

Why does life always get in the way of what you want to do?

I just hope I can stay focused among the turmoil!


About Julie Hooker

Having recently returned to my roots in Surrey, I am currently studying a BA Hons degree with the OCA. My work is often inspired by the local countryside in the beautiful Surrey Hills area and the wild rugged nature of the North Cornish coast. Steam engines and abandoned industrial history are also recent themes. A free machine embroiderer and felt maker; I like to explore the use of natural, found materials to create my art, whether that be as raw materials to stitch or weave with or as a material with which to produce dye or print with. Previously, I completed City and Guilds parts 1 & 2 Creative Embroidery at the East Berkshire College in Windsor in 2007. I was also awarded first place in the wearable art section of the National Quilt Championships 2008 and 2009 held annually at Sandown Park.
