Blog thoughts

Nine more hits on my blog will make it 3000 - a milestone of sorts seeing I have not yet been blogging for a year, and often wonder about who reads what I write. One of my earliest wishes when I began was to find this blog listed on the blog roll of someone else as a favourite; I can report that this happened some time back, and that I was delighted at the time - a bit pathetic really, but I guess we all seek and enjoy approval at times, no matter how grown up we might be! There are so many wonderfully creative people out there in cyberspace and it is very easy to spend hours wandering from site to site looking at their varied and inspirational creations or witty writing- some of my favourites are listed here, but since I have discovered Bloglines, this list is a bit redundant.

No photos today as it was spent in Ballarat, I went to purchase some embroidery threads at the wonderful Sovereign Needlework who stock a very extensive range of wool, cotton, silk threads, fabrics and other needlework ephemera. The small collection of variegated silks and wools I purchased almost look too good to use! On the way home I also went to the Creswick Woollen Mills where I found a big bag of wool and alpaca mill ends for $5 - these will be great to use with the embellisher and although my pieces are fairly small, they have larger bits and dyed wool for felting along with all the other lovely rugs and alpaca products. Well worth a visit if in the area.
