Time is running out!!!

I go on holidays on Sunday and I haven't even bought any supplies to take with us yet.  I have sewing to finish, embroidery to complete, things to sort before the builders move in, Xmas presents to get in the mail that I haven't even bought yet.  HELP.

One thing I did do was week 1 of my on-line course from The University of Leicester, "England in the time of King Richard 111".  It isn't very taxing  and is only at what I consider a Junior High School level but it does give a good overview of the period and what was going on in society at that time.  Why am I doing it?  Well I am going to stitch a historical sampler and I want to have a feel for the period when this work was done.  This is a free course that is spread over six weeks and it seemed a good way to research the period without having to dig for all the information.  Plus I love this kind of thing. Learning is my addiction.

This course is offered through Future Learn.

Here you can find the courses that are on offer from a range of Universities.  I've signed up for another two after this.

It will be interesting to hear whether you feel the course has enhanced your enjoyment of the stitching...

Well I am enjoying the course.
