Hi Everyone, this is my first attempt at 'blogging' so I may well just be talking to myself but if there is anyone out there I hope you will find something interesting/useful/amusing/informative here from time to time and that you will leave your comments and let me know what you think.

I took this photo of funghi growing on an old log a week or two ago and played around with it in Paint Shop Pro, thinking it might provide inspiration for a new embroidery. I haven't started anything yet but I like the images. Somehow ended up with this kalidescope - its amazing what a few clicks in the 'transform' menu can produce!
