I have been a lurker for about 6 months, I really didn't think I had it in me but it just goes to show you can never judge a book by its cover.
It is all Maggie Grey's fault, I put her blog page up as my Home page so every time I log on --- there it is. Of course now I am hooked and slightly obsessed. I never for one moment thought I would join in, as I look at all the wonderful things shown on all these great blogs and think my few pictures will not be near as inspiring. I was not able to enter Maggie's draw or wish her Happy Birthday, as I did not know what to do and then I saw on Dogdaisychains blog that Margaret was attempting her first blog. So, after checking Maggik Moments out I got inspired to try ---- and here we are. I don't know how to link or highlight anything or add anything exotic, but at sometime during this blog I shall attempt a picture.
One of my worries is that I won’t be able to keep the blogging up, as I seem to waste so much time on the computer doing one thing or another. So either I will have a great blog and no embroidery, or the occasional blog and hopefully some work to show.
How do you all manage it? My days seem to fly by and I seem to have nothing much to show for it. If there was a Degree for displacement therapy I would have a first. Maybe this blog is a bit of therapy – I hope I won’t end up boring you with it.
I shall stop ‘wittering’ on now and attempt my picture.
Wow! I did it. This is the very first corset I made, it was for my City & Guilds Part 1 (equiv. level 2 I think) in Creative Embroidery. By the way I call it 'In My Dreams' as that is the only time it will ever fit me.
I shall say 'Bye-Bye' for now and with my new found confidence I shall attempt one or two comments.
