Here is a picture of the latest issue of Embroidery Magazine with the amazing work of Abigail Brown gracing the cover.
I was compelled to write about a subject which fascinated me, and I e-mailed my thoughts to the Editor. After a little tweaking it was published!
The article, ironically, was on – drum roll – blogging!
I loved reading a few craft blogs, and thought they were so inspiring, and I seriously thought “I need to write about this”. I did not blog myself at the time – I used to think I would have nothing of interest to say. When I started my silversmith course I thought it seemed like a good time to start writing one, and I have to say I now love it. I thought that the blogs I read were almost like on-line sketchbooks, and feel that my blog is also a great way for me to try things out and see what really makes me tick.
I have not been compelled to write about anything else and get it published since. It was a complete one-off, but I’m so glad I did it.
