Now it is the considered opinion of some that 'artistic pursuits' are irrelevant and that I wile away my days doing nothing very substanial....being a creative type and all and especially as now I am not employed in proper (paid) work. Extremely grateful as I am to be able to 'finally' do what I love on a full time basis it has to be said it is not without a certain amount of dedication (to the tiny spark of an idea that won't let you sleep), hard work and sometimes very late nights. I agree I have a great boss and she does let me come to work in my P.J.s but it is like anything worthwhile it takes a huge investment on my part. Soooo! I have 3 FTF's this week.
The first being, that after being available for all and sundry for so long "I" get to decide now how I will spend my days and whether or not it is in worthwhile ways. The second is after working fairly solidly since last October (when this little spark just refused to let me sleep) I have finally completed my 2011 Christmas designs instructions and all(I even scared myself).....that was in doubt a few weeks ago when I rendered myself useless after swinging my sewing machine up on to the sewing table and hurting my back. I have included a little sneak peek for your viewing pleasure. I'm keeping it under wraps for just a little while longer.
My final FTF is also my "Floral" offfering. As you know My thumbs are 'wanna bees' in the green thumb department.....but I had been trying unsuccessfully to grow this little violet type plant (sorry no clue as to it's name) when my friend Gaye who has bright green thumbs gave me a piece from her thriving plant and GUESS WHAT!! I have photographic evidence not only have I got it to grow it even has flowers on it. Woo hoo!! You may be saying to yourself 'big deal' well to me it's a huge deal! Applause is probably not necessary but you can if you like....
