I got this website for Christmas from my wonderful friend Ro!
So now I'll be able to share some of my creative work on line ....
Here goes. As I have said in my 'who am I section', I still have my L plates so writing a blog will possibly be a bit of a challenge for the reader. However, let me 'blog on' with a few inspirations I have had in the last few days.
Yesterday I joined my stitching friends for a day of 'stitch and chat'. I should add 'laugh a lot' to that too. We had a great day, sitting around the table at our friend Linda's cottage, al fresco under the shade cloth. Stunning coffee, delicious food and of course lots of talk about embroidery. We did actually achieve quite a lot along with the socialising.
I visited the local library on Saturday after my usual shopping at the Nelson Flea Market. I go every Saturday and join the throng for fresh fruit, veges, coffee and chatting up the stall holders. I have made heaps of new friends by loitering at different stalls and chatting up the owners.
Anyway, as I was saying, I went to the local library and while browsing the 'display stand' - the books you cannot yet borrow but can put on hold - I found wonderful one on Art Deco Design and another on beautiful Asian blue and white porcelain. These books are coffee table numbers really, but do stimulate one's senses and imagination for future embroideries or art projects. Have you visited your local library lately and taken yourself into a new realm of creativity to stimulate your imagination? I try and step out of the box and find books that I would not usually borrow and then go on a journey of discovery. It is a great way to rev up your senses and imagination.
