Never Let Me Go

i went to go see this last sunday as part of the leeds film festival. it was one of the best films ive seen in a long time it was so beautifully shot and i loved the contrasting sci fi aspect with the old school. I was really inspired by their uniforms i love the fact they didnt all look the same or wear the same thing but you could see it was a uniform. I am really inspired by this almost controlled/structured way of dressing i love the neatness of it!

i am reading the book at the moment and i think it is really amazing and i do wish i had read it first but i couldnt resist going to see the film!

Tailoring Module

Today we started our tailoring module i am really excited but i do know it will be a lot of work. Today we did hand sewn hems and hand made button holes and next week we're are setting in a sleeve so we have to have all our blocks done and cut out a bodice so it will be a busy weekend i feel.

Demolition 10.11.10 - Protest

I went to the protest today in London and thought it was really amazing i was so pleased to be trying to do something about the fees increasing. i was upset when it starting becoming violent as i knew it was going to take the attention away from the fact 50,000 people had turned up and tried to be peaceful and change the governments mind. I have photos to follow but need to get the film processed!
