Sandra Thank you so much for nominating me for the Make my Day Award...... I am so flattered. It has left me speechless.

Thanks for all the great comments on my blog, it is always a lovely surprise to think that people visit and read and I hope enjoy. It gives me such pleasure to read the comments you leave.
Karin, I am pleased that the stitching of the flowers gave you inspiration, and Lynn - its a pleasure.


I have been racking my brains about the TIF challenge (check it out here) that Sharon B has set us. My thinking has got to the stage where I have considered a whole host of people whom I admire and then have asked myself the question why? That has been the stumbling block.. to recreate that "emotion" I feel about the admiration into visual imagery. I suspect I am not alone in this. I have decided to use the artist August Macke as my "idol" he had a short life... but the the way in which he used colour .... I so admire his style and the way in which he progressed in his art.

I feel much better now I have thought it through... tomorrow I shall finish the stitching from yesterday ( I hope) then I shall get my sketchbook out and make a proper start. I have to do so much thinking around a subject before I can really get started. Reading your blogs ....I know many of you have the same problem. So we will see what happens next...... ooohhh scary!

Ha, Ha, too funny. I'm also popping in to tell you that you've been tagged for the You Make My Day Award.

What a popular girl you are! I seldom comment but I do visit often and I enjoy your blog very much.

I understand if you being tagged once is enough for you.

really looking forward to seeing how you tackle this one Maggie. I sit there for ages staring into space as it were, thinking about it all... I like Liz's mind-map idea too so might try that.

I have never heard of August Macke but the painting on the link looks vaguely familiar, not really sure why. Looking forward to see how this developes :)
