So many exciting ideas come from workshops

March has been such a busy month of workshops and the Creative Stitching show last week was such a great event too. The lovely thing about being prepared to share your skills with others is that they so often share their knowledge with you. Everyone has a skill they go to a workshop with , even if that skill is a keenness to learn.

I learn so much from my students and I think part of that is not being afraid of your own mistakes- the journey to trying to find perfection is the key not the final destination. but then I think there will never be enough years for me to learn all that makes me curious.
