I thought I’d have another go at the Anna Dress, using a cute poplin that is so soft and floaty. I liked it so much I bought 6 meters, which turned out to be lucky since it took a lot of it! The reason for this is (I discover as I nearly finish the dress)… Read More Anna Dress, take two
So this came as a pack, which was a nice thought but ultimately doesn’t take into account the size I am. Shame but nice idea! Nice fabric, very pretty. I somehow got the measurements completely wrong though and ended up slicing and dicing the final piece to the point where it looks just a little… Read More Cherry Dress
This week is the last week, and talking about putting blended learning into our own context. I was struck by the ways in which we can gather data for Osted, since that is always an issue. I like to hear student opinions, but I did notice that many of the students were technology, and young,… Read More Week Three: Blended Learning
We made face masks for our friends, family and the volunteers I work with. I used this pattern using spare fabric, and fat quarters. But they have been popular and I really think it should become the social norm to wear them.
So this is a pattern from ChrisWDesigns called Coco – it was free when I signed up to their page. I really liked it but had to adapt it a little to my tastes. I tend to prefer a longer strap instead of a short one, and I learnt a lot about interfacing in this… Read More Handbag

Transformation suggests taking something and making it different but innovation might be… Read More Week two: Transforming Digital Learning
I do like this song 🙂
So this is a course I found via a paper on “panic-gogy” – the rapid transformation of teaching to an online format. I love that term! I was struck by the three Cs that the Deakin lecturer spoke about: curious, constructive and compassionate. Those are really things that spring to the front when we look… Read More Week one: Transforming Digital Learning
Useful resources from this week: Good things foundation – this does seem to have a lot to it but I am doubtful that it is useful to me at this point. CILIP – library and information association – again, not directly useful at this point! Education and training foundation – this does have some really… Read More Week two: Blended Learning Essentials: embedding practice.
One of the conversations that has been recurring for me is the “but why am I so tired” one. I’ve had it with students, and other staff, with family and with friends. The thing everyone forgets is that we’re six weeks into having a new job – we’ve had six weeks of doing everything differently.… Read More Covid-19
