You could say it's 14 years, but I did have a year off for maternity leave. Well, tomorrow is the last day that I work at the Victorian Tapestry Workshop. After starting off there in 1996 fresh from a Bachelor of Arts at Monash University, I am about to finish in order to start something else, a full-time PhD in Aegean Archaeology at Melbourne University. I'm excited, but a teeny bit apprehensive. It's comfortable to stay the same, but it's time for a change. Plus, although like Archane I'm as good at weaving as Athena, I don't want to become a spider.
