Happy Birthday Dear Blog.....


Well, there it went....... the first year of
GWI blogging! What a brilliant first year it's been too. It's fantastic to see each other's creatively inclined finds on and off the internet and, of course, looking at the back catalogue of our own work is a great reminder of achievements as individuals and as a group. It has also been lovely to start receiving feedback from our blog readers - what a treat.


I've loved pretty much every post on our wee blog but if I had to choose... my personal favourites, in no particular order, would be.........

Pam's crocheted scarf for her Mum ~ Ali's post about Ron Mueck's exhibition at Aberdeen Art Gallery (which inspired an unforgettably brilliant day out for me and mine in the Granite City) ~ Fiona's post about her brilliant lampshade ~ the simplicity of Elaine's fabric printed tablecloth and the 'Nothing is original' Jim Jarmusch quote post, because I love the positive, creative and honest sentiments of his words.

And then I think of all the things we did and haven't blogged about yet... our mosaic frames, lino cutting, all those crocheted heart garlands that the hookers among us rattled up for Christmas time... our hilarious attempts to clean sheep fleece in readiness for adventures in felting... The metres of bunting for kiddy birthdays and cakes, biscuits and bakes galore. Sweet.

Happy Birthday Blog!
