“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”. - Lao Tzu I love that quote. It has so much depth of meaning. Yes, to making a start on something. Yes, to even the smallest step, one at a time, one day at a time.
This year I’m collaborating with a fellow workshop teacher and extremely talented quilter, Katrina, to bring you a creative and fun two day workshop on colour and design to enable you to design your own quilt blocks and quilts.
I LOVE Pinterest! And I confess that I can get lost down the Pinterest rabbit hole more often than not. I do try to be restrained and stick to 10 mins before bedtime or first thing in the morning but invariably I end up wandering and lost. Happy, but definitely side-tracked and lost!
This past week, following on from the Craft, Hobby and Stitch trade show I attended back in February, has seen me go from dreaming of becoming a fabric designer to actually selling some of my designs and thus, becoming one! I’m also working with a UK fabric manufacturer to further develop one of my collections. So yes, it’s been an exciting week for me.
Yesterday I was talking with a friend who’s hoping to set up a new blog soon. I asked her why she hasn’t done it yet as her ideas are so lovely and I think it’ll be a great success. Her answer and reason was quite simple and interestingly profound. She was worried about the time it would take to curate her spaces so her photos would be appealing and “perfect” for her blog content.
I know I drive my family crazy sometimes with taking photos when we’re all together. It’s what I do. I love photos. I love capturing all the times we’re together and also those fun “no one knows you’re snapping” candid shots!
One of my strongest and earliest memories is standing outside my grandparents home with my Nan in London saying goodbye to my Grandad. I used to think it was a dream until I told my Dad about it and he was so surprised as he said I was just a toddler about 2 yrs old.
