Crazy and busy times

I think I have the most wonderful job, now that I have retired early from my profession. I am able to indulge my passion for creating my own work, visiting exhibitions and shows, places, meeting people and now I also have secured some freelance work training teachers to teach art....... I love it.
My life is a sort of patchwork, all sorts of interesting bits and pieces are sitting together.. rather like this strange piece of embellished absract work I did.

As part of my remit I can also engage artists using a variety of media to join me, as artists in residance. It is fantastic. I shall never be rich in terms of money.... but in terms off fulfilment and happiness, what more could I ask for????It not really a job is it? It's what I want to do. Think I am so lucky.

Friends and my internet chums Mags, Sara, Dorothy G and Gill to name but a few, said I would be so busy when I retired.... Okay .... you were right. Its been quite hard to find the time to blog. So folks --- retire. Its great!

Thank you so much for posting an image of this amazing piece. I abandoned using laces and scraps of this nature with the embellisher because I thought each piece was suppose to become completely "felted" into the substrata or into one another. Of course, this didn't happen. I will have to revisit this idea because this work is just gorgeous! Beautiful...and're teaching me as you teach others! Keep up the good work and spreading art!

You sound so happy Maggie! How wonderful to spend your time in pursuit of your passion. Sadly I'm a long way off retirement yet but hey I can still dream of a lottery win right?!

Hi Maggie. Retirement is wonderful isn't it? Especially when you have such a wonderful job that's not really like work at all but pleasure!
