Cheerio 2010!

I have spent days trying to think about what to write in this post and it is true, I could write a novel.  How to sum up a year in a few paragraphs, sentences or words? It isn’t really possible, is it? There have been happy times, sad times, frustrating times and uncertain times, but that is life and I am grateful for all of it.  On this last day of 2010, the year in which we got two mischevious bunnies, I got cancer, and we got married, rather than pondering life and blogging, I have decided that instead I would rather be up in my studio pottering – a place I hope to be for the greater part of 2011!

But I would like to take the time to wish you all the very best of health, joy and happiness for 2011 – may it be a wonderful year for all of us! x

Aaah it has been forever and a day since I put together a wee inspirational mosaic based on my flickr faves but here is the latest.

Thank you so much to the artists, creators and makers who share images of their work for folks like me to gaze and wonder at.

It has been a funny old weekend with lots of back pain caused by the weird and wonderful positions I have to lie in for my radiotherapy treatment so I have only been able to catch up on a wee bit of hand sewing. However I find myself restless, that fluttering in the pit of my stomach and the swirling of ideas and beginnings of possible creations. I am taking it slowly as each day I am pooped – today for instance I had my hospital treatment, came home to package parcels, went to the post-office and made dinner and that left me exhausted, so my plans and dreams may have to come to fruition a little slower than usual but I shall get there in the end…… as always.

PS I know that it looks as if I have abandoned my blog telling this present story but I am hoping to update this week. Seven weeks without internet put a halt on the updates and I have since found it difficult to even begin to fill in the gaps and carry on but I hope to revisit the story soon…

Thank you for visiting! x

Still here……

Gosh I had not realised how long it had been since I had posted to my blog. I have so much to catch up on although I fear that I may not be able to fill in ALL the gaps! I am slowly creeping towards the finishing stages of 7 weeks of radiotherapy so am increasingly tired and each day it is all I can do to get up, shower, go to the hospital and fit in a nap in the afternoon. But I am almost there!

I have been wanting to get back into the habit of blogging for a wee while now but after 6 weeks of broken internet, it has been a struggle to get my bloggin mojo back if ever it was there in the first place. So I start again here…..

I am not always the best at catching up on where my work appears, on blogs and such like but I did find this wonderful feature on my work yesterday. Although I had to use the translator to understand her words, she has managed to capture the spirit of my work, imaginations and dreams in a way that I often struggle to capture in words myself. I am overwhelmed and grateful that anyone would take the time to do this.

Hopefully I will be able to catch up on things here and update more often from here on in.
