I am a huge fan of late bloomers like Julia Child (who started cooking at 37) or one of the most influential British gardeners, Gertrude Jekyll (who didn't start gardening until 40), but crafter Mary Delany has them all beat. She didn't even conceive of the idea for her famous floral collages, which are in the British Museum, until she was 73. Amazing. I wrote about Mary Delany's crafting life this week on the Creativebug blog. Promise you'll be inspired.
(The Mary Delany Collection at the British Museum is efinitely worth a look)
