Welcome to my blog. I thought I'd start with something that I was reasonably satisfied with. I made this piece of nuno felt on a course recently and - for once - was quite pleased with it. I feel that I could work on this technique. That's unusual for me - usually it just goes in the UFO box! This reminds me of a beach on the Isle of Man where I went in the spring with my two dear friends Mags and Adrienne. A really 'blowy' day - but one to put in the 'memory box'.
The fact that you're able to read this at all is all down to my dear friend Jackie who has encouraged me to start blogging and sat here whilst I did lots of 'daft things'. A very patient lady - thanks, Jackie.
Welcome to ‘maggik moments’. I’m a ‘Lancashire lass’ who makes textiles – sometimes. A bit of a dabbler, I haven’t yet found the one thing which makes me devote enough time to producing work that I’m satisfied with. One of the problems is that I know too many people who are brilliant at what they do and I compare myself with them. The second is that I just enjoy my social life too much! I’m thinking of retiring from being ‘retired’ – it’s just too much like hard work! – but ‘I deserve it’ after 30 years of teaching?
I’m a self-confessed ‘travel tart’ who can pack a suitcase and be off in a matter of minutes – my Sagittarian influence, no doubt?
I am starting this blog with the intention of it making me more serious about my ‘textiling’.
