Phew! What a day! What a super response from you all. I read the thirty I know about last evening - and they were so very interesting. Thank you so much to all you wonderful bloggers out there. Incidentally - as several people have asked - no I did not intend it to be every Wednesday - as far as I am concerned it was a one off.
There were so many highlights for me that it is impossible to select any one inspiration - there were dads, mums, friends, teachers, books, artists, poets,religions, nature, musicians, animals, rainbows, clouds, mountains, Christmas - a huge list. But judging from the super write-ups then they had all certainly inspired.
If I had to choose really lovely ones, then I do recommend, if you haven't already done so, that you read gleaner-of-possibilities inspiration about a little African refugee child; Melrose Musings story of a dear old friend is also very moving. Various embroiderers amongst you mentioned Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn, their work, their sketchbooks and their books - that is a subject close to my heart too.
But really, you all did splendidly well and reading you all was in itself an inspiration.
Building work here is gathering pace - everywhere is dust - I can't find anything - the dog is totally confused - and I have friends for lunch! So shall sign off with another big thankyou!
