Today I had my last tutorial before my final hand in next friday. I found it really helpful as we went through my portfolio, covering both Creative Cut and Design For Market, I now have clear tasks that will help me to improve what I already have. I am feeling quite happy about the deadline next week because I feel that I am on track for finishing and with work that I am very proud of. I still have a lot of work to do but this tutorial has helped me feel a bit more focused as I know exactly what I have left to do.
Today I was working with my third year, I had to do a lot of cutting out of embroidery, I quite enjoyed this as it was something different to working on all of my projects, it was a nice 'distraction' which has focused me as I have had to be very careful with my time plan to allow myself time to finish everything. I also had to do some topstitching, at the start of this mentorship programme I would have been terrified to topstitch onto the final garments but I have gained a lot of confidence in my technical ability and now I just get on with it.
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday
Over the past three days I have been working on all of my portfolio, design and sketchbook work, getting ready for the deadline that is only 1 week away, I have made a lot of progress over the last few days so I am feeling okay about the deadline, I just need to knuckle down and push towards the finish.
