Hi everyone,Lurking in the back of my mind are words of warning - never, never store both needles and pins together on the same pin-cushion.  Does anyone know why?Continue

Hi Marilyn,

How wonderful to discover all your talent just at the stage of your life when you will be able to have time for yourself to explore it!

Certainly when I was at school we didn't get taught to draw and I must admit I never even tried when I was young yet my sisters and parents were all talented in that area.  It was not until I started my C&G and had to design, that I did - and I am no great shakes at it! 

I agree that everyone can draw, I trained in Hypnotherapy and NLP and discovered so much about the way we programme our brains, most of us spend out lives believing we can't do things, so our brain says okay lets not do that!  You were right to challenge yourself and release your creativity, you will find now you have done that, you will be able to achieve much more because your brain knows you want to!

Hi Marilyn,

Just popping up to say Hi!  I have recently joined the group and am enjoying getting the feel of the place. 

You were in the textile trade, I used to teach it and yet it seems people don't really express their personal creativity until they are grandparents, how strange!

Hello again Marilyn, and thank you for accepting my friendship request.  If you go to my page - just put your cursor on my butterfly picture [avatar], you then can scroll down to the area called profile information.  My blog should be there, and linked to this site, so that you can just click onto it.  I dabble in lots of things as you have probably seen.  It will be lovely to follow your work too.  I love crazy quilting/patchwork/embroidery, but don't do nearly enough of it.  I make the most awful mess in my work room when I'm doing it!!  Cheers.
