Well it's all been a bit strange since we last met. I've only done up to the 15th of May on the Daily Stitch so far so a fair bit of catch up to do there. The Kory's Owl Goldwork piece has been on the back burner too. I've finished the wing Pearl Purl outlining… Continue reading Running Through May

Scrap Happy April

Thankfully I finished what I needed to do in my studio this evening as the noise on the roof is deafening. This month I pulled out my ancient scrap box again… Continue reading Scrap Happy April

Though I did make a rookie mistake of stitching silk in a round hoop and expecting it to go in a square frame after. Of course the silk was bruised as I didn’t float it or use a stretcher bar frame. Next… Continue reading Easter Sunshine
April the Beginning
On St Patrick's Day Nat, Tracy and I went to play with some glass at Linda Rowe's studio. I have done a few classes with her in the past and you can see some bits made HERE and HERE. This time while the others were learning what it's all about I went totally off track.… Continue reading April the Beginning
March the Last Bit

Scrap Happy March

I have several plans in the pipeline but for this month I found a PHD… Continue reading Scrap Happy March
