Living The Magical Creative Life

Living the magical creative life was the intriguing title of an invite to Susie's house. Indeed such an invitation is not to be missed, as Sue is very much a creative spirit. I arrived to her sun trap, decorated with colourful sari,s , blooming colourful flowers, a fine feast, and a selection of colourful lovely creative souls!
Creative people being; musicians, artists and a wonderful story teller. As we chatted and devoured the fine food some people passed around their current art and craft work , along with beautiful angel and flower cards being passed around the circle.
Sue has been working on Knitted balls for necklaces and had a joyous moment the other week when she worked out how to knit little leaves. The pics show how jewel coloured knitted necklaces also a delightful box of knitted and felted brooches. Another fabulous Sue idea was displaying her paintings in the garden, why just hang them on the walls indoors?! It really created a sort of secret garden feel. I also met another etsy lady called Kay Susan, which is quite surprising as I thought there was only about three etsians in my area. Her work is exquisite , she produced this divine, smiling embroidered plant from her bag. The detail in her work is masterclass so take a look at her brilliant blog and etsy shop: http://www.smockerysmart.etsy.com/ and http://smockery.blogspot.com/



Anyhow a beautiful day : "a gathering of artists in an artistic setting" , so sending big thanks to Sue and Tanya.

What a wonderful event or gathering. I would love to do something like that at my home. Sadly, I don't know anyone to invite:( I need to find me some creative types or convert some.
