Up the hole, round the tree and down the hole.

Another day sitting at my desk; six layers, a woolly hat and umpteen cups of tea going cold before I drink them. It is freezing in here. I've been drawing trees and bunny rabbits for some nitty gritty knot illustrations I am working on. (No prizes for guessing which knot this is!?)
I like to listen to BBC Radio 4. Sometimes I have to concentrate so hard I have to turn the radio off, but today I was listening and drawing. This morning, Woman's Hour had a special "Women in Business" programme, and Jane Garvey was chitchatting with a panel of female entrepreneurs. She asked the successful business women to give an inspirational tip to any small business listener trying to do it for herself...

"Self promotion is not a sin," was the cry I most remember.
The trouble is, I think it is, and therein lies my problem.


  1. Maybe this site will give some inspiration -

  2. Thanks Paul, and hooray for Grog! He is a great source of knotty knowhow, but my all time favourite for inspirational knottiness has to be The Ashley Book of Knots.
