Recording

First of all I'd like to thank all you lovely people who read my blog and have commented in the last few days. I do try to respond to all the comments, but have been a little busy this week, so thanks everyone.


I wonder how many of you like myself have experimented and made something you are really pleased with, then you think you will remember how it was done? When I come to do it again the method has completely slipped my mind and I have no idea how to recreate it.
I am now trying to keep a little record book of all my experiments. They are quickly made and easy to fill and this is one I have prepared for one of my articles in Fibre & Stitch - The new Online Mixed Media Zine first issue.


These shells were picked up by my friend Trish when she was on holiday in Ireland. I will put up a few more images on the SerenTex blog shortly.

I have done that so many times. I have a horrible memory and I know it, why, why, why don't I keep notes. Well I know why...I'm lazy. But I am trying to improve, really I am. Right Sue????

lol! That's right Terri is working hard on remembering to take notes:)

Love this record book Mags - such a great way to record results of a process. I'll definitely be making these for my projects going foward.

your record book looks great! not only a how-to but must be very satisfying to look back through it. Love the shells too! I was at the beach yesterday and picked up a few - no way near as many as that!

Hi - I just love your blog - I find it really inspiring - I always love the photos if Conway as we often visit that part of the world when we need to see the sea as I live in Warrington - keep on inspirng me

Susan said...

I love the way you have the seashells arranged!

Alis said...

Great book Mags,
I always promise myself I will make notes. I have enough books but get carried away and forget!

Love the shells.

I usually start with good intentions of record keeping and then get carried away with what I am doing and forget to take notes or photographs and have to make another one.

I love your shells. Norman and I were collecting shells on the beach last week and I also found some lovely driftwood. Great source material for another quilt or book.

I just came across this blog and absolutely love your images. So far I've had so little talent with a camera that I've avoided using one much, but I love other people's work with photography so much that I'm getting more and more tempted to try again sometime. Sites like yours certainly inspire me!

Penny said...

Margaret you have inspired me to do so many things, I love your photos and your record of what inspires you has sent me out with the camera. Recording what i do? well that is another story!

I was thinking just today, I wish I'd kept a diary of the paint techniques I've done in our house, as I will soon have to duplicate something I did nearly 2 years ago.

My mom always kept notes, I think it's time I do too.

Please never feel obligated to email answers to me. I find it easier to just visit other's blogs& leave comments. For email, I don't have Outlook Express email, & have to copy & paste, & jump screen to screen to do emailing for each comment. I spend far too much time on the computer as it is!

love your new photo in the heading, Mags.

Thanks for the memory, I can smell the Irish shore now.

A record book is a great idea - and yours is lovely!!
