Lately it has been all spinning and knitting, I had contemplated making a quilt but could not find a pattern in my mind to make. So this from Ann Miles blog intrigues me, just sitting and making things in a journal, collecting the things I love, poetry art, needlework a blend of those things that make up a 'magpie' mind. Dragging out my commonplace books, poetry I've collected, the children as well when they first wrote their first few lines.
So where to start, well there is plenty of Japanese papers to choose from, two baskets full of materials, the only other things I need is some watercolours, my computer can be used for imaging. Facebook introduces you to lots of art work, also designers and ideas, and Pininterest to the gorgeous, though what I can only describe as very OTT........
Not in Utopia - subterranean fields -
Or some secreted island, Heaven knows where!
But in the very world, which is the world
Of all of us, - the place where, in the end,
We find our happiness, or not at all.
