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

May the Beginning
I've been a little busy lately with a secret project for GSP Rescue UK which has nearly come into fruition. All very exciting at a very needy time for the rescue. I will let you all see when it's a little further along. In the mean time I have been just about keeping up with… Continue reading May the Beginning
I’ve finished the William De Morgan Strutting Peacock. I’m really pleased with him. 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
Tracy and I had a little jolly out the other week. We went to see New Forest Mohair as he had his shop open. I’ve seen him a few times at the shows but this was a first visit to his actual home and to see the goats too. We bought a few bits there… Continue reading March the Last Bit

March the Beginning
I finished my February #meaninguflmonthlymake. I had seen some spot samplers and when I was having a rummage I found some antiqued pressings and the two sort of came together. I wanted to just encrust the piece of felt with little ‘samplers’ and fills and surround the pressings. I also seem to have more than… Continue reading March the Beginning
