[The assignment for Blogging 101 tells me to write a blog directed to my ideal reader. I have thought about it all day and decided that I am probably going to cop out on this assignment because if I don’t know where this blog is going how can I know who the ideal reader would be? But because this aspiring good woman also wants to be a good student I will do due diligence and attempt to complete the task.]
Dear Dream Reader,
I am in the process of determining the direction of my blog so you will find the topics I choose to write about will be varied and perhaps not very cohesive. But having spent an entire career in a field with rigid rules, the freedom to do be able to include whatever topic in my blog is refreshing! I hope you will appreciate the randomness you might find in this blog. Like me, I expect you are also exploring avenues and adventures to follow in your life. For me, even at age 60+, I find that I am still striving to see what else I want in life.
One thing I have always marveled at and appreciated (and I trust you do to) is the ability of people to create by their own hands, whether it be a painting, a piece of woodworking, a sculpture, a photo, ceramics, a delectable dish, needlework, crafts, a poem, a story. I am amazed by the work of human hands. ( I am also amazed by the work of God in his creations but that is another story, although perhaps those are not two separate and distinct things.)
It is because of this appreciation that today I want to share my latest and largest counted cross stitch project. It took me 14 months to complete. It’s story and significance will be saved for another time. It is my hope that this provides a taste of what might be found in this blog and is enough to make you want to come back for another visit.
