Semester Update #2

This edition of Semester Updates includes embroidery projects, dyeing fabric, road trips back home, knitting, yarn shopping and beer (to keep us sane). It didn't get too tiring at this point in the game but it was the beginning of the real stressful stuff that makes Thesis Project so wonderful. This was the point when projects started forming and the finishing began. 

See Semester Update #1 here and look for two more updates to come!

Architectural Inspiration: La Sagrada Familia

This incredible ceiling belongs to La Sagrada Familia, a large, beautiful Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, Spain designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. 
How amazing is that ceiling? It gets better.

The church started construction in 1882 (130 years ago) and still is not complete. At the time of Gaudi's death in 1926, the project was only a quarter complete. The construction passed it's midway point in 2010 and is estimated to be completed by 2026! It was delayed by funding and the Spanish Civil War.

The design of the building combines Gothic and curvilinear Art Nouveau forms as you can see in this detail above.

The church holds 9,000 people! And how amazing are those columns??



The stained glass window creates some amazing colors on the forms inside the building.


Aren't those colors magical?


This is one church that I would absolutely LOVE to visit. Though I am not involved with the church, to hear the echoes of the mass in that structure must be incredible. Just to see the building would be incredible!

Have any of you ever been there?
I would love to hear about your experience if you have!

And I'm back!

Hellooooo SOS-ers! 

Though my blog has been on hiatus for the past... has it been a year?, I am finally back! There has been a lot of changing in this past year or so, but I am ready to jump back in with ya'll.

The biggest change? I am officially a college graduate. Damn.
Still adjusting to that one. I'll elaborate on that later.

I'm going to try to update you on my last months of college through photos.

Part 1:

This will happen in sections as there are a lot of photos and I like to keep the suspense. But, along with more life photos, expect some changes around here! All good ones, I promise.

Glad to be back!
