I setup Big Bird Little Bird in memory of my sister who died from cancer 3yrs ago. She would have loved Folksy and seeing all the talented people on here and their makes. Helen used to crochet knit and sew. She made her own clothes, knitted teddy bears for charity, and was trying to sew art dolls when she had to stop due to her illness. Prior to my sister’s passing I hadn’t done any sewing since basic stuff at school, so she inspired me to take it up.
So she is my inspiration, but I am also inspired when I go on long country walks (Lullingstone/Eynsford is a new favourite), the light shining through stained glass windows (such stunning colours!), and the style of the tudor and victorian periods.
So, who or what inspires you when you create?
