It's been quite a week, I did mean to blog on Wednesday, but I was just too tired after long days at work and walking home in the snow. Then came the dreadful news of the Haitian earthquake, and the horrors of the devastation that has been caused. Melissa at Ardea's Nest has been reminding everyone about taking action to help if you possibly can.
The week did end on a happier note as I had a great start to my day today. My beautiful bear brooch, which I won last week, arrived from Kim at Witchmountain. It's gorgeous and smells beautiful too, as it's filled with lavender. It was so beautifully packaged, I didn't want to open it. If you haven't visited Kim's blog, please do, it's inspiring!
This afternoon I went for lunch with my friend Wayne who is an artist. He had an invitation to a private viewing at the Royal West of England Academy, and invited me to join him. Wow - amazing building and wonderful art. We wandered around looking at ever thing with a glass of wine ( just a very small one for me!) I enjoyed myself so much I have decided to become a "Friend of the RWA", which means I'll be able to go to all the exhibitions, plus lots of other benefits, like workshops, lectures and visits. Lots of inspiration to be had!
I'm still stitching and here is the third piece, an early orange tip butterfly.
