Under the influence .....of Bloggers

My friend Nic is a blog lurker. I don't think she had read many blogs until I confessed to mine. Now, she is an avid reader of every blog that I read too! I don't think she has sewed since school, but for Christmas, she bought her daughter a sewing machine ( a present for herself me thinks!), and using all of our top tips (Charity shop fabrics, market haberdashery etc) and this fab tutorial by Denise, she has started to produce gifts for the Mothers Day fair at her childrens school.
I was delighted to receive the prototype in the post on Saturday! I love it! I think they will go down a treat Nic!
It just shows you how you can inspire and help others create, and not even known you've done so. xxxx

Ah yes............ the "lurking" phase......... does she know the next step is the "dipping the toes in the water" phase? She has made a lovely start on her crafts.

You must pass on another compliment, although I expect she'll read this one for herself!!! Tell her to get going with her own blog, it's not like a Yorkshire lass to be so 'lurking' !

I'm sure there'll be some happy mums on Mother's Day when they receive those, so pretty. I think there's so much inspiration out there in blogland, we just need a few extra hours in the day now to do everything we're inspired to do.
