I am in no way devoid of inspiration or ideas. My head is racing with so many new projects, directions I wish to take, fear of change, desire for 'new' ventures. Normally if I am creatively barren I get stuff out...random stuff, old work, some sketchbooks, maybe a book or two, magazines even. This gathering however has been born of excitement...not a lack of creativity. I am so very excited about the new course I am preparing at the moment and in order to continue with that I wanted to look at embroidery, look at embroidery purely for the pleasure of it. So out came the boxes and the files and some things drew me more than others. I have been reading too, reading old research papers and I have been so inspired by old quotes, that in their re discovery have become new and newly inspirational.
One especially will probably become my focus for some time,
''from the newborns swaddling to the corpses shroud......humanity is wrapped in cloth.''

A little profound? well maybe but it feeds me, it drives me...
The fear comes from a desire to change my blog...that seems trivial after the last paragraph but is actually very, very scary....I don't want to lose any of this blog, it has served me well for years and has been so good to me. I can export this one to the new one apparently but as my finger hovers over the ''export'' button my hand doesn't move.....
help.....advice...experience.....any of those would be so very welcome.
I AM GETTING TONS OF MAIL TO DO WITH SOME MAILING LIST...IF YOU GET ONE TOO I DID NOT SEND IT...HOW CAN I STOP IT?????
I have just set up a new facebook page for online learning...please pop over and ''like'' it....but only if you do ''like it''!!
