I am using this blog to chart my journey as I get involved with stitched textiles again after a gap of twenty odd years. I've tried once or twice recently to get started, but time - the lack of it - got in my way. Now seems right though, and this online diary will be my reminder not to let it slip through my fingers again.
Wish me luck.

Nipping Eyes

I'm tired tonight so although I've just completed today's work (day job), I won't be embroidering or even planning. But I am looking forward to a whole day to myself soon with no interruptions.
My brain has been active even if my hands weren't and there are some starting points waiting to be explored.
The reason I'm tired was the ridiculously late night I had last night. Hours spent roving the internet researching old textiles. My final year study at college was into North African textiles and I didn't pursue it after I left. So now the internet trawl threw up a few interesting bits and pieces.
I also lost an hour (or three) figuring out how to make this a three column blog. It worked, I'm pleased to say.
Well it's goodnight from me, but first -
Shorelines  1989
Colours on Canvas  1987
Floating Fragments  1989

  1. Glad I stumbled into your blog. Love your shorelines piece especially and reading further back, glad I'm not the only one who loses needles and ends up with tangled threads! Look forward to visiting your blog again.
