I love to see all the clever things that others design and make but I sometimes feel that if I’m not working from a pattern I feel that I am flailing about a little. I wish that I could use the inspiration I gain from others work to design my own things. I know that imagination is like many skills, it needs tending to grow and develop. It needs time and peace and warmth and nourishment. It needs encouraging and bolstering when things go awry and heaps of praise when flying 🙂

I know that I am able to give my imagination these things and I know that the wonderful Mr H will help me along, but right now all the aforementioned things are needed far more by the 3 blossoming teenagers in the house. I know that there will, in time, be opportunities for experimentation, trials, errors and growth. Until that time I’ll keep perfecting techniques and when my imagination can take flight, I’ll be able to keep up with it!
