Checking In Again

Image from "fedegrafo" at is a great place to browse for inspirational photos. You are allowed to use them for free and without getting any special permission, though most photographers do retain copyright. Great for artistic inspiration. I rarely use a photograph directly, but find they are great for sketching and color inspiration. Terms of use are on the website.

I took down the post of my "Roots and Wings" piece since it came to my attention that even though you can see all of the show pieces here , we are still discouraged from posting on our blogs. Not sure if I have this right, but I didn't want to take any chances. Rian, thanks for taking time to comment, I can always count on you!

I have found myself spending less time in blog land lately, but I did just finish a fantastic book. If you are looking for a good read, try People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. I got my copy here at the library and it's probably available at yours if you don't want to buy it. Worth owning though, it's an excellent read. I have been trying in recent years not to buy so many books since after a while storage gets to be a problem. Same with fabric and art supplies, though I am a little less successful in that area. I look around our overfilled house and think "simplify, you MUST simplify". That is kind of a buzzword these days, but it is true. The clutter of life takes over if your don't work to keep it under control.
