I Am in Awe

I'll try and add a link here..Jellywares
Yoo hoo! I think I made it work!

This is one of the first blog pages I found in my first tentative steps into blogworld. I was so excited. Needless to say I love both crochet and ric rac, so I thought it was one of the most delightful things I've ever seen.

I promptly went and searched the cupboard for some cotton and bought a hook to get started. I think I've made about a metre of it so far. I haven't taken a photo yet, so you'll have to take my word for it! I have no idea what I'm going to use it for, but it is ric rac so its possibilities are limitless. 

 Blogging is proving to be enthralling in a way I never imagined. I'm traveling the world, gaining endless inspiration and meeting a incredible collection of  talented women, all via their blogs. I know it's a measure of my advancing age (No, I'm not sharing That information) but in the 'olden days', when my children were small..

And when communication across the world was a much slower exercise, this exchange of ideas, knowledge and world wide community was unimaginable.

I am in awe. It sounds a little silly when I say it. But it is nothing but the truth. I'm in awe of these (mainly) young, talented, inspirational women, and in awe of the technology that I could have only dreamed of as a child.
