new books new inspiration

just read 'Mans search for meaning' and 'the book thief' both of which have given me loads of inspiration for 39-45. The wonderful ladies at Embroiderers guild Merseyside have also been in touch with me asking if I would be interested in doing a workshop, obviously I said yes! so finally things are starting to come together.
Anyway this is what ive been doing so far, apart from reading. Sorting out a colour palette. I think they scream 39-45, Europe and design. Europe because of the colours, but also design because If I hadnt of gone back to art college I would not have appreciated architecture, history, hand embroidery  the way I do now.

so where do I go from here?

I came back from Birmingham with high spirits thinking about starting up workshops, possibly doing the MA Ive always wanted to do or even going back to freelance design work, but a week later and my head is still confused as what to do. All I know is I need a new job that involves working with people and textiles, but not sure how to go about it with the economy the way it is. If anyone who views my blog has the time to write a comment or give advice I would truly appreciate it.
