Excuse the absence of crafty activity over the past few weeks. The laborious business of preparing to defend my thesis took priority over the more pleasant activity of felt making. I'm happy to report that the oral examination was a success and after making a few minor corrections to the text, the bound copies can at last be deposited with the University library and that looooooooong chapter of my life will officially be over. Yippppeeeee. The pretty flowers came from my Mum.
