I thought I'd share with you, where some of my interest in making things comes from....My mother..
She is currently retired from farming and now works for herself as a basket maker and a weaver. She is really very talented and produces oceans of work in every year.
She has two websites,.... anyone at all can have one!
Just some of what she makes. She also spins a lot of wool for rug making.
When she was a young, married woman she was dress-maker, she studied nursing in New York and Nursed in St Lukes before she married. She farmed from the time my father died, until I took over.
So she was led a varied and colourful life so far and although we don't always see eye to eye, she is an inspiration to me, and has passed on the gene that won't let you rest until you create something new!
