Of too much heat that is. And we’re due more, even hotter, over the weekend. I know I don’t function well in it but it’s the dogs I don’t like it for more. Very early walks and boredom. Evenings are brain training, nothing strenuous. We are lucky in that we have a huge battery on… Continue reading Nope, Not a Fan
A few years ago we decided to buy leather sofas against everything we ever said about them. We'd had them before and remember how cold and slippery they were. We thought with the dogs it would be an easier, cleaner option. That turned out to be at the expense of our actual comfort. After 4… Continue reading More Stitch
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.

We left the house in the dark on Christmas morning and were on the beach at Studland for… Continue reading Oh My, I Have a Clear Desk!
Elsa had a meeting in London last Friday so I tagged along. The weather was pretty good for charging around city streets, appalling for June though. Once we’d checked our bags in and Elsa had gone off I went and had breakfast and decided to walk from Trafalgar Square over to Victoria and Shepherd’s Bookbinders.… Continue reading A Couple of Days Away
We’re back from Wales and it’s been a bit of a mad catchup with life! I have sorted all my treasures though, piles of them. While sorting I did find a bag of bits Linda Monk had given me of some of her experiments. Im not sure what I am aiming for with them but… Continue reading Eventually Things Come Forth!
