It's the last day of uni for the year tomorrow! I've been really surprised at how much I've learnt and changed because of uni this year, our lecturer held a trivia quiz last week in class and I actually knew most of the answers, not surprisingly I got the pop art question wrong! Fortunately, James and I are heading to Sydney next week and the Art Gallery of NSW's Pop to Popism exhibition starts next week so I can pick up the bits I've missed and check out some of the pieces we've been discussing in class first hand. http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/exhibitions/pop-to-popism/ The last time we went away without the kids was for a friends wedding in Tassie at the start of 2011. I found out I was pregnant with Linc about a week before we left, and the combination of (a) morning sickness and (b) a trip to Tassies best wine and soft cheese country, meant that I spent a lot of the trip feeling quite sorry for myself. We're not in Sydney for long, and I'll have a hard time prying myself away from my new little niece so I'm not sure how much else we'll get to do/see, but I'm looking forward to lots of uninterrupted time with James before he heads away again!
I've also found out this week that Yellow Box, the big moth/bark quilt, has been accepted into One Step Further this year. It's a great exhibition, I'm devastated that once again I will get into town a few days after it's closed, but I know I'll get there one day! Soldier On was Runner Up (large Quilts) last year, so here's hoping I can do one better this year ;)
