I have always liked to make things. I also like to learn new things. Two of my friends took a basket making class with me out at a lovely place called "The Granery". The Granery is a part of a large Cherry farm, a working farm. My friend Edna introduced me to this lovely place and lovely people. Edna goes out there in the summer and picks cherries and makes pies for Esther who runs the Granery. Its a little store she has on the property and in there features hand made items from local people. She also has a little antique shop in what was once her garage. Great prices and some great finds. I love old linens and hand croched pieces so always have a look when I go out there.
Here is one of my baskets.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
