For my Blogging Your Way week 1 Post 3, I have chosen to post about "what inspires me and why."
It's really not difficult to explain , and then you may think I'm crazy! You wouldn't be the first, so here goes!
- I am inspired by the way that women are standing up now and saying "this is what I do, and it's worth something!" That is such a great thing, when I was growing up, women did not have that vision, they were content to be at home and to not value their importance in the world. Times have changed dramatically.
- I am inspired by the fabrics that I have now to work with - the colours and the feel of them, they are alive in their own special way, and I love being able to help them express their beauty in my own way.
- I am inspired by the beautiful colours and types of yarn I can use now - gone are the days when we could only buy 4 or 8 ply yarns, and they scratched and gave (me) a rash!
- I am inspired by the country of India, the people, the culture, their spirituality and the wonderful colours again. Unfortunately, at this time of my life I may not be able to fly overseas again, so I very wistfully have to look at that beautiful country on the television and in books - I especially love the Indian cookbooks that I collect. I won't give up on my dream to go there yet though!
