The truth is, I miss what this blog means to me - a space to celebrate making things, a space to be reflective and thoughtful, a way to be part of a really lovely community.
Of course I can do these things without a blog (and I have in the last year - maybe one day I might even show a little of what I've been up to while the blog was sleeping) - but it helps.
Two lovely friends have written posts about blogging that sum up my thoughts pretty well.
I am also excited that the wonderful weekly ritual and community that is "my creative space" is making a comeback ... to celebrate, I've decided to take on a new challenge. I've decided to enter the Reginald Softie Portrait Competition.
That's it. I've said it. I am going to give it my best shot, stop worrying about how I am going to sew a portrait when I'm still unsatisfied with my drawn attempts so far, and, in the words of the inspiring Kirsty, "have a crack".

Wish me luck!
