Watching this back I realised you can see the blanket my mum made for me in the background, so there's a case in point: we were inspired by Sandra Juto's gorgeous crocheted blanket that we'd seen on Flickr and tried to make something similar for my home. When i shared the blanket on this blog and on Flickr, i linked to the original inspiration. Sandra very graciously left me a comment on the photo, so i was reassured that she was flattered and not annoyed.. but there is still that grey area, isn't there. If my mum and I were to start selling those crocheted blankets, would that be wrong? Maybe it would be... maybe we'd have to substantially change the design and take it in a new direction... find our own style, our own signature. Just as when I have been inspired by photographs in the past i have absorbed the inspiration but not replicated what i've seen... i wanted to find a new way to see.
Anyway, blah blah blah, these are just some thoughts today. This topic could run for weeks :)
