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
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. Then there was the no response from 111, 999 having a 4 hour minimum ambulance… Continue reading Being in the Wars

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
I managed to finish off the last of the silk thrums with two more bowls and a couple of placemats. What I was most happy about is that a good sized carrier bag of stuff just sitting in the way is now used up and useful!! Well I had the smallest amount left which went… Continue reading December Almost There
