A foray into the world of textiles and the ups and downs of living a creative life.

How quickly the year seems to pass when we start thinking about Christmas. For those people who share the spirit of this event, there are many wonderful creative activities to enjoy. One of these is the sending and receiving of letters and greeting cards from long lost friends and relatives. As preparation for this, one of my dear friends, recently invited me to an afternoon of card making. As the pictures show, there is much one can achieve from a few scraps of coloured paper and a little creativity. I particularly enjoyed making the ones where we folded up the paper and arranged them in a cascade like a tree. Lucky for us, she has promised to share a few of her secrets in detail with us next year, so we should all be able to create beautiful greeting cards for any of the special occasions we have.
Textile enthusiast and creator. I learnt to crotchet and knit from my nana. Fifty years later I am still hooked. Now I spin, knit, crotchet, weave, and work on tapestry. I am currently learning design and trying to master a dobby loom!.
