Blogs are personal weblogs which people use as a diary, describing events and sharing thoughts and inspirations. There are thousands of Blogs kept by many creative people and the Blogs kept by textile artist often provide inspiration and motivation. There are a few blogs which I read regularly as the writers are immersed in the textile world and create interesting informative Blogs.
