This Week in Craft
This week has been a major week for me and many others across the country - it was my first week back at school since March. At first, I was really nervous to go back because of Coronavirus but, actually, the experience was better than I had expected.
At my school, not a lot has changed; we are still able to sit next to our friends and have different teachers for different subjects, but we now also have to sanitise our hands as we come into school, keep our distance from teachers and stay in a set area of the school, away from other year groups. We also have the option to wear face coverings and have time at the beginning of the lesson to clean our desks if we wish. Whilst I wouldn't describe it as perfect, I do feel safe, and when I have asked people to keep a bit of an extra distance to make me feel more comfortable, people have respected that. Overall, I'm happy to be back.
However, this isn't the only thing that has made going back to school a little different for me. This year, I have started the GCSE curriculum. Again, I was prepared for it to be a hugely stressful thing but it really isn't - in fact, I'm actually enjoying it. At the moment, we are mostly just revising and building on what we did a few years back. Of course, I am having to do more revision and homework than before, but because I don't have to do any subjects that I particularly dislike, I do want to put the effort in. At the same time, downtime is very important too, and I have still had plenty of time for that.
Remember last week, when I mentioned that I was having a bit of a clear-out of my craft stuff? Well, through this, I have found so many amazing art supplies and balls of wool that I completely forgot I had! I'm not sure what I'll use it all for, but I'm starting to get a few ideas. Here are some photos of the things I have found:
Also, I am continuing to work on the Creative Smile cardigan that I mentioned a while ago. Attached is a photo of how it knits up - isn't it pretty?! I'm a bit obsessed...
That's all from me today! I hope you have all been getting on well back at school or work too.
