Merry-Go-Round - Is place of the essence?

Jump on our merry go round and join a group of artists/crafts-women from around the world as they link hands and tell you a little bit about their lives in craft.
Do look up the answers from the rest of this band of crafters (links to your left).
If they haven't posted yet, remember we all live in different time zones and check again later...
This month's theme:
How much, if at all, does your geographical location affect your art/craft?

Well, truth is, I am away right now, in Morocco.
So that is definitely affecting my crafting, as I am away from it all. But I do plan to keep my eyes peeled and find new inspiration. I've also taken with me a large cross stich project, but I'm not sure how much time I'll be able to put into it... Able, willing, whatever. When the sand and the ocean beckon, strength of character is really not my forte.

Other than material contigencies and lack of space, I'm not sure that my current geography affects what I do, or how I do it. Wherever I am, I am always on the lookout but also thinking of, remembering, looking forward to— other locations.
I think it's much more about personal culture than geography, for me.
Though my location definitely affects how I feel, which in turn...

That'll be all from me, 'cause I'm off to the beach! Sorry about that. :-) Not!

I'm pretty sure you'll find much more interesting reading on my fellow merry-go-rounders...
