Drum roll please…
After talking about it and planning it and working on it, Anna Scott has started her new blog. Anna is the editor of Inspirations Magazine and you’ll remember Anna from an interview with her six weeks ago here on The Unbroken Thread.
In addition to being the editor of Inspirations, she is a gifted designer and active teacher. She also manages a needle pretty well! You can visit Anna’s blog right here – be sure to bookmark it or sign up for email updates.
Not only has she begun to blog about her own embroidery (rather than writing and editing articles about the embroidery of others) she’s also opened an etsy shop. Always on the look out for the next project, I zipped right over there to see what was on offer! (As if I need another project waiting in the wings….but I believe in being prepared for a long winter!)
There are two designs for work – one in crewel and one in gold and silk. There are also complete kits for each of the projects and even a finished pillow for someone who doesn’t want to stitch but simply wants the finished article. (Who would want that?!? None of us, I imagine!)
I must admit I didn’t exercise any restraint and ordered the Crewelwork Blue Elegance on my first visit. I’ve just received the PDF via email and you can be sure I’ll let you know when I start stitching it!
I was ‘talking’ with Mary Corbet via email this week about the online world of embroidery, asking her advice about something as I often do. She is my mentor in the blogging world. Although we have never met, she is, like all of you, part of my embroidery group. And now we have another brand new online member, Anna Scott. Welcome!
p.s. For those of you who may never have noticed, when one of our community leaves a comment, often their name links to their blog or web site. That means if you click on their name, you are flown through cyberspace to their site. (If you click and nothing happens, then they haven’t left a link).
If you want to have a fascinating few hours of embroidery heaven, start clicking, pop over to all of these great blogs and take a look!
