A record of an art quilter's life. The site name comes from Natalie Goldberg's phrase 'falling down the well' to describe the experience of becoming immersed in the trance of writing (or other creative activity.)

I see that I have been absent from this blog for 22 days. How did that happen?
Well partly it has been that our Internet decided to play up for days on end. But mostly it has been that I am distracted. Look what is outside our house!
We even have somewhere to go that will accommodate a studio at the bottom of the garden - you can bet you will be hearing all about that as plans progress. I kind of don't want to jinx the whole deal by blogging too much about the details until contracts are signed. But by way of explanation of how this is distracting - in a fit of celebration I went out and scoured newsagents and now own the July issues of every single house magazine published in the UK. I am happily scouring them and ripping inspiration out and scrapbooking....basically moving house is just one huge shopping experience in all kind of stores I don't mormally think about.
But I have to say that some of the magazines are too aspirational even for me. I spotted a roll top bath. White and very sleek I admit. But it cost £43,645!!!!
Not for me. But I am thinking a spa bath......
Meanwhile one of the first things I think we shall do is rehang these baskets that are gracing our current home.
