Testing...testing....one, two, ten....
Anybody out there????????
Oh, there is.
Are you sitting comfortably? Then we'll begin.
I wonder how many other people are starting a new blog on this, the first day of the new year...lots and lots, I would imagine. Resolution, I hear you ask? Don't be daft! I don't do resolutions. I do, though, do writing, talking, singing, painting, sewing...and sundry other things, as you will doubtless find out if you drop in to read my meanderings every now and again...
The photo was taken a while ago, when I was selling the cloth I dye, as opposed to hoarding it, using it and occasionally giving it away. It's as good a photo of me as you get (ie not that great...), but the fabrics look okay, I think. Some of them are quilts, most of them are yardage. My challenge now is to keep working with them, get better at what I do...and to share that process of improvement with you through this blog. Learning is really important to me. It's why I run the online group, Alternativequiltlist, on yahoogroups. I get to talk to lots of interesting people, learn a thing or two, and share what I learn. I hope this blog will be something the same.
Today and tomorrow are holidays for the humans in the house...the cats, all four of them, are on permanent holiday (don't think I can bear to lift the catflap, mum, could you just...oh...it's raining...don't think I'll bother...put it down, then...). And then it's back to work in my TIDY workrooms, one for paint (oils), one for cloth. The tidy bit is my answer to New Year Resolutions. I'd rather do something practical to take me forward into the new year, than think about what I might do and make silly promises about weight and health and all the rest that I know I'll never keep. Three large bags of cloth are going out to new homes, as soon as Normal Life is Resumed after the holidays.
Wonder how long it'll be before the carpet in the cloth workroom disappears under a welter of cloth....any bets, anyone???
