Looking for something portable, light and easy to do in the heat I picked up the Rico Fashion Modern Tweed vest pattern R1906 in Mustard to finish. The pattern is one that finishes about the model’s belly button so, knowing I like about a 16 inch side seam, I added a fair bit to the… Continue reading Summer Rolls On
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
Well we’ve had a few weeks of strangeness starting with John and a nosebleed. Not just any nosebleed of course. His has to involve blood vessels well up into the sinus cavity and being on two types of blood thinners.

Well I can't quite believe how fast May has gone! Though we've had warm weather we've also had some torrential downpours and massive thunderstorms and lightning. Little Gwyn has taken it all in her stride thankfully. Quick catch up with the Stitch and Crochet a Longs. The Nordic sampler is almost up to date with… Continue reading Slowly Getting Done

It was Gwyn’s first holiday and she was a little cautious at first. But she soon found her paws! We met up with friends and their Pointers, one… Continue reading Some Away and an Exhibition

At the beginning of the month I signed up to Laura Kemshall's 31 days of Art Journaling. I… Continue reading Spring is Springing
First of all very, very belated Happy New Year!! Which started for us with our usual sunrise dog walk on the first day of the year. Yes we're still here and doing ok! Thank you for the messages especially concerning John and his treatment. We did the full thing of hospital PCR tests, isolating and… Continue reading Long Time No Blog!
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've started on one half with some leftover threads, the other half will be neutral colours. Don't know where it's going but… Continue reading Twixtmas 2021
