Off to The University!

Yep… I’ve decided to take the plunge and work on a degree!

I know… everyone is sitting there wondering just where will I get the time to go off to school?

Well – worry not… I’ll be an online student!  I do not even have to leave my house much less get out of my jammies.

The most exciting part is that I’ve been personally invited to enroll by the Professor who is in charge of this particular program. 

Although I was quite excited that she thought I was worthy… I’m really not as smart or talented as she may think.  I’m just really good at bluffing my way through – but shhhh don’t tell OK?!

Now I have so many decisions to make… what degree do I work on?  An MD or PHD?  And what field of study?  I’ve dabbled in a variety of things over time… I hate to brag but I’ve done some work in History, Finance and Fashion (to name a few) so I could finish up those.  But there is also the lure of Agriculture and the Culinary Arts.

OK - so you want details?  I’ll be attending the University of Southampton… cool huh?

No - not The University of Southampton in the UK… I’ll be attending the Quilt College at The University of Southampton (aka Southampton Quilts). 

Their PHD (Projects Half Done) and the MD (Mostly Done) programs are quite appealing… I really could work towards both degrees with little more effort than unpacking a box and pulling out a few projects!

I have to ‘declare my major’ and submit my project list to ‘Professor Beth’ by September 15th as school starts in October!  Although I’ll be an online student… I hope to make it up to the campus to attend a class from time to time.

I know many of my fellow students and am quite honored to be working along with them towards our degrees.  (Hi Ladies!)

I’ll keep you posted as I go along… but for now - I need to go poke around in some boxes.

Charlotte says to tell you that a certain 4 Patch Stacked Posey will be among the PHD credits she is seeking this semester!! Hmnnn....maybe the professor needs to dig out her own Posey blccks and finish those quirky borders once and for all.

I earnestly read thru your post--thinking about homework etc--and got to the end!! ROFL--yes, you had me!! I think I need to go to school.......inc

Cheryl...I am so glad you are joining us this fall. Charlotte talked about 4 Patch Posie. Do you remember Homeward Bound? That one isn't finished either. It's going to be a busy year.

Oh Ladies you just don't know how much I have that I could put on this list!

The only posie that is quilted is the first one I did... I have several tops done... several others that only got thru the block stage... more fabric than I care to admit that would be perfect for posies... LOL

Oh and Judy... my Homeward Bound... I have to confess isn't complete either. I know when it was hanging in the shop it was quilted and the binding was on... but I only glued basted it around to the back so it 'looks finished'.
