It's been a long time coming! Along with the wonderful cooler weather and the exhibitions coming up I've actually found a little urge to make something! I made a mess like this... And this... Put in a little soapy water and elbow grease and ended up with these. Then, after some stitch was added by… Continue reading A Bit of Creativity
I've been meaning to write a blog post for ages but just haven't done it. I thought I'd better try and do one before the end of the month at least. First a quick round up of Crochet-a-Longs and Stitch-a-Longs. The Stitching Cabin Nordic Winter SAL is now up to band 4. I'm using a… Continue reading April Round Up
In the run up to Christmas I found some of the Aida and linen offcuts from projects I have made this year. Taking a leap I patched them together and made some frankenfabric.

I laid this up the other day. Lots of scraps, sari silks and organza pieces.It was predominantly green and I couldn't find the balance. Mind you green is not one of my favourite colours it seems so perhaps that was the problem. Then yesterday Linda blogged THIS post on her page and it twigged that the green needed a play mate. I… Continue reading A Tinker Here…
OK so that's November almost done too. Someone has definitely speeded up this year too fast. Could we have a slower year next year? I've felt a little disjointed of late, not sure why. Trying to settle to something has been weird and so half the time I've just done nothing instead! Not very proactive.I decided I had better do something… Continue reading Moving Swiftly On
