Whilst searching for my birth certificate yesterday I stumbled upon some school report cards from when I was only 8 and 9 years old.
I was amazed to read the teachers findings about me at that age.
. . . Seemingly I enjoyed needlework!
I could not remember this being particularly so but now it all makes sense.
I have been pursuing my passion for bears for a few years and I desperately wanted to make them, not a conscious decision to do sewing in itself, but to produce bears.
Needlework is obviously something that has been lying dormant within me for a lot of years but I was completely amused that coincidentally nowadays I do hand sew almost every day.
Strangely enough I was also noted for a lack of imagination in art? I blame the teacher considering . . . I have worked in an Art / Design background since leaving school and I’m sure anyone who knows me would not consider me to lack imagination at any point in my life! In fact I have a very vivid imagination :0)
