Happy Birthday

Well here we are one year on. I followed what I believe is a tradition and looked back to the beginning. It has been an amazing year and I have come across many people who have inspired and excited my interest and led me off into new worlds. I feel all the sites in the side bar have given me some way of improving. My "Woman of the Year" has to be Sharon Boggon who has taught me so much through her Encrusted CQ class and through her blog In a Minute Ago.It is a delight to be part of Take a Stitch Tuesday.

My main interests at the moment seem to be needle based, when I started my blog Altered Books were my main focus and looking back has made me want to do some more. I particularly would like to try and combine the needle arts with the paper arts.

There are so many people who are so generous with their time and talents. As my birthday present I would like to share two I have recently "met". The first one is Dotee who has written a tutorial for a little frienship doll. I made this one and it has already gone to a very special friend.

The second link is where I made my birthday "card". ZEfrank has all kinds of interactive "toys" on his site this is my favourite "The Scribbler". I am so excited by it as I feel it has great potential as a design tool for someone like me who does not draw very well. (I am practising!!!)

So there we are, off into another year. My thanks to anyone who has visited and for
all the kind and encouraging comments a special gratitude.
