I have been on school holidays for two weeks and had time to go through photos taken when my husband and I went to Paris to celebrate my 60th birthday in 2008.
Looking at them yesterday, I realised that I had captured quite a few decorative designs and some quaint kids-wear shop window displays. I need to practice putting photos on my blog so this is a good opportunity to share some of my inspirations for my knitting and crochet and art work (most likely sub-conscious) and practice putting photos on at the same time.
I am the eldest in a family of 7 children and my creative side has been evident for as long as I can remember. (I still have dolls clothes that I made when I was about 10 years old - and the doll!)
I love to knit, crochet, sew, write, read, make books, make jewellery, work in the garden and recently I discovered the joy of 'playing' with art again. I attended an Altered Books Course 3 years ago and haven't stopped "playing" with mixed media since. I find all creative pursuits very calming and relaxing and something I do every day - in one form or another.
I worked as a Teacher Librarian for 35 years & as my husband is already retired and keen to travel, I now do casual teaching and try to find more time to be in my "Room"
