When I began writing Windy Island Handmade over two years ago, I was busy making candles, soaps and all manner of fabric loveliness. Since then life has moved on and I now spend my time gardening, dancing and making life as pleasant as possible for my three rapidly growing children. I feel now that there is only so much I can write about baking cakes, weeding the garden and driving to the beach with a car full of teenagers. I no longer make things by hand and therefore feel that anyone tuning in to read my blog and expecting to find just that, will be disappointed.
I think that I have taken Windy Island Handmade as far as it can go and would like to finish before I completely dry up and write absolute drivel that no one wants to read. That is not to say that I will never write another blog...it will just be different next time.
I have always loved writing and my blog has taught me so much, not least that people seem to enjoy reading what I have written, which means a lot to me and spurs me on. I am not going to stop, just take a different route.
Receiving comments was never number one on my list of reasons for writing a blog, but the ones I did get were always so thoughtful and kind and each one left me with a renewed warmth for humanity. Thank you to everyone who took the time to send me a message, they were very much appreciated.
So for the very last time and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for reading. xxx
