You may or may not have noticed I have not been present on my blog. I also have to confess to not having read any of your blogs for quite some time. My energies have just been focused on dealing with financial and family issues with little energy or motivation left to feed my creative side. I have also found it difficult to work on miniatures since I lost my Mum in December possibly because it is a hobby that initially my mother and I shared or maybe it is just because of the other things going on in my life. I think I just found I didn't need the pressure of trying to keep up with my blog for a bit.

On the positive side I have been playing around with an on-line Craftsy course making a little wall art quilt over the last week or so. It is not miniatures but it is the first creative thing I have been able to put my mind to in many many weeks. Hopefully it might give my creative energies a recharge. I have always wanted to play around with things to do with fabric and textiles but haven't really let myself apart from a short stint at felt making many years ago, the odd cloth doll and some counted thread embroidery.

I want to apologise to the winners of my giveaway because I have not posted your parcels as they were pushed out of my thoughts along with everything else. I will get them posted to you in the next few days.

I really have loved blogging and feel I have made some great blog friends. Please bear with me while I get my thoughts together as to how I wish to move ahead creatively.

I hope all is well with all of you. I will try and get back into reading some of your blogs. It just might motivate me.

My art quilt (work in progress). Notice the little house - not a dolls house but quite quaint all the same. Made doing a Laura Wasilowki tutorial on Craftsy, Hand Stitched Collage Quilts.
