Finding inspiration

posted in: Instagram | 0

Day 4 of #positivelyinspiring15 is inspiration – here’s how I find mine.
.
A funny story (although perhaps only because the ending wasn’t too disaterous) when I was working at the make space in Bristol museum in July, I thought it would be nice to take some unframed pieces so that people could have a good look and see the back of pieces, which often seems to be quite interesting … anyway, a lady walked in to the room and plonked her red handbag and water bottle right on top of the original of this picture 😱😱…she clearly didn’t find it very inspiring 🤣
.
If you find it more inspiring than the bag lady (as we’ll now call her … serves her right for being rude 😂) , cards are available on my website, etsy shop and from @hollyandcoworkshop and A4 prints are also available in my shop .

There and back again Lane
.
I was determined to include There and back again lane on to this map (When I was a child, whenever we went out in the car and my brother or I asked where we were going, my Dad always used to say that’s where we were going!) and as I was passing yesterday and had it to hand, I decided to take a photo … at which point I realised I’d forgotten to stitch it on 😂 (the actual location on the map is the little side road just off of Reward Road – see if you can spot it! ) I’ll have to go back for another picture once I’ve stitched it on! (It would seem I have become that crazy lady that stands around in a street full of bins trying to get a photo)
.
Just another little reminder that I will be stitching another map at Bristol Museum next Thursday (19th) in the #MakeSpace attached to the Woman’s Hour Craft Prize exhibit
