I really should have introduced myself, shouldn't I? I'll try to keep this brief...
My name is Eleanor. I live on a farm, something I hadn't really intended. I tutor French, another thing that was unanticipated. I have been living at home now for about 5 years, and while in some aspects I am quite content, in others less so. I have found patchwork to be a great release factor, and I sincerely think it has helped me stay sane - it is having something to do, and creativity. I hope this continues. A few 'I am's...
I am flighty. I rarely work at one thing until it is finished, but instead flit around as I am easily distracted.
I am not fashionable. Generally speaking, I can't afford the newest ranges as and when they are released, and that's if I can get them. I only ever buy new ranges if I really fall in love, and even then I try to limit myself. Besides, it can take me a while to think what I want to do with them.
I am unsure how I would describe myself. I am pretty much anything goes when it comes to material, but I am more drawn to more intricate piecing or clever placement of colour. So while I love 'fresh' material, I'm less sure of what to do with it.
I am a lover of gadgets.
I am a foreign magazines junkie. I have subscriptions to several, and I love seeing the different styles all over the world. I try to draw inspiration from all of them...
I am trying to design. I rarely stick to a pattern, so now I'm trying to make some of my own. As I said, I'm drawn to more intricate piecing, but I'm trying to design easier things to teach.
I am trying this for a second time. I tried blogging before, but missed blogging things, and it just piled up without ever being published. This is a new start.
