Well, today I finally finished my Drawing class that I took a single credit in (that’s why I’m getting out early). This is what I created. It’s a 60″ x 30″ wall scroll made of canvas. I hand stitched all the sides with 1/4″ double stitches. It took me almost 6 hours to finish the sewing. There was no way I could have used a machine since the canvas was thick and then it had 5-8 layers of paint on it as well. This is all spray paint and acrylic paint, I made stencils for the biohazard and the guy. It took me roughly 2 hours to plan out the stencils and cut them out. Overall, this was probably a 12 hour project, maybe more if you count all the “drying” time I had to wait through.
Anyway, that means my Tuesday and Thursday classes are gone. I will only have to stop in one more time to pick up all my work and take it home. I’m glad I’m done, I was really enjoying the class and I actually met a couple people I didn’t mind conversing with, but I have been run ragged lately. Between the house, 2 graduate courses and trying to plan everything, I’m tired. It will be nice to have one less class to worry about and no more deadlines lining up on the same day.
This week I’m off school for “mid-winter break”. Whatever that is. We get two week-long breaks in the spring semester, which is odd, but it’s fine with me! I’ll be spending the week catching up on sleep and probably getting our home inspection done. I haven’t set it up yet because I’m waiting for the final signatures from the sellers. We were supposed to have it done by this afternoon, but of course, they are running at their usual glacial pace.
Have a good night and hopefully I’ll be able to give the final word on the house tomorrow.
