I've also been thinking about singing. I love singing, it fills my soul and also makes my brain work very hard. I'm not a brilliant sight reader, never learnt music as a young child, took it up as an adult and never seriously worked to get beyond the beginner's sight reading ability, too many other things in life to be creative in and my voice is standard, nothing to write home about, but choral singing allows it to become part of a whole and that whole is fabulous!
Yesterday I spent the day with members of my online quilting group - Southern Cross Quilters http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scquilters/ - we are planning the annual GTG in real space and Sydney is hosting it this year. The mermaid mask is for this event BTW. I am constantly inspired by the creative abilities of this group of quilters! For instance, Jenny Bowker, she has moved to the middle east and is a SCQuilter and a famous quilter, it was her blog http://jennybowker.blogspot.com/ that finally pushed me to create one.
