Fabric Journal

At the end of last year I started to collect together all the
things to make a scrap book journal on,
'Dressmaking and Textiles'.
Today, after the Christmas break I went
back into the Studio and collected more of the things I liked.
I had seen a You Tube video a couple of months ago
on 'Fabric Journals' and this is my inspiration.
I start with this video but as you know I like to do
things my way!
See the video on my tech site

Happy New Year

Wishing Everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year.
January 2012 is my second year of blogging
and I feel so lucky to be able to share my art work and life
with others.
I had a lovely time over Christmas and have had a complete break.
I didn't sew from the 23rd of December until today!
I did do lots of reading and research and enjoyed
being with family and friends.
I always allow myself a chance for a break in
my creativity and allow myself to recharge,
hence the statement above!
We expect too much of ourselves in this media, technology, rich
society and we always need to take a step back and take stock.
Hope you are able to take a break this year however you can,
whether it be an hour or a couple of days, it's worth the time!
