There has been absolutely no creating over here this week. The winter flu knocked me for 6 and I must say it is still weighing me down. But I thought maybe you might be interested in the "maude" in maude and me.
Who is Maude? Well there are actually 2 Maudes.First there is my Great Aunt Maude and then there is my mum, Beverley Maude. Both women are a great source of inspiration, very special, and fortunately have passed on their creative genes to me. Aunt Maude tried, I think, nearly every creative pursuit when she was alive -from intricate lace making to her bold oil paintings. It is her can do attitude and interest in a vast array of crafts that I have adopted. It was also aunt Maude that taught me how to crochet. I now also have her 2 spinning wheels which I really want to learn more about. My mum has always been sewing and her patchwork creations are amazing. She is a constant source of knitting ideas too and it is from her I learnt to knit.
