from the granny hexagons that I am making to cover the
I am enjoying the combination of colours I am using and I have the the design of my Puff cover firmly in my mind. The granny hexagon patterns I have created myself with no pattern. Not that they are anything out of the ordinary and I am pretty convinced these hexies of mine are inspired by other hexagons that I've seen out there on the world wide web,so I don't think a great deal of originality has been involved in their making. Therefore I hesitate to say I created them.
These sort of things often leave me wondering does INSPIRED mean COPIED ?
What am I trying to get at here.
We store things! Our memory can be a fabulous natural external disc drive ! Has it never occurred to you that your memory can make you create something subconsciously that isn't original but you think it is original?
There are occasions when I look at something I've made and I ask myself where did I get the idea from. Is it totally from an idea of my own or is it partially from the ideas of others.
How original is that?
I don't mean tweaking ,I understand tweaking as using the main pattern from another and adapting it to ones own likes but the main body of the pattern is still respected and acknowledged.
Do you think we are using the word INSPIRED as an excuse?
Ahhh these thoughts of mine...talk about tying myself in knots!!!
Right I was talking about a distraction and as much as I like my present WIP I have been well and truly distracted by these cuties .
Here you have Laila who at present is winging her way to New Bolingbroke in Lincolnshire to live with my sister.
I would have liked Laila to stay with me but on giving it careful consideration and as I am trying to think what would be best for a turtle, I have to send her to the Uk . Laila needs a wetter climate to survive and Alicante is not a watery place at all. The long summer gets super dry. Laila would not be happy here.
She'll be happier with my sister and she'll have company;Misty the poodle
and Billie the Retriever ...... they'll look after her.
and tomorrow is...... yes friday....happy days!!!!
