I’m back!

Hellllooooooo! Anyone out there?


I’m back! Finally! It’s been a while….and I’m sorry I left you for so long. Things got pretty complicated in my life for a while and I wasn’t very well. And then by the time things started to improve I’d got out of the habit of blogging.



Anyway, you don’t want to hear about that – you want to know all about the crafting! You’ll be pleased to hear that the lull in blogging wasn’t combined with a lull in crafting. In fact I think I’ve been doing more and more. I find making things very therapeutic and it has been very helpful in improving my health. I’ve carried on with sewing and monster making but I’ve also learned some new skills which I am looking forward to telling you about.


But, before all that, I wanted to talk about this post. I signed up for pay it forward AGES ago and started working away on my gifts for the people who had signed up. I had most of my gifts complete months (years!) ago and then things went a little bit downhill and the PIF project fell by the wayside. I feel really bad about it, especially as Beaky sent me such a lovely gift. So, before I started blogging again I wanted to make up for it and send my PIF gifts on and start with a clean slate. I managed to get hold of Sue from BeeDesigns and her gift is on its way as I write. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get in touch with Sandra or Wilkie and both of their blogs seem to be defunct now :o( Guys, if you are out there then please get in touch…….


Right, that’s the business out of the way. Now for some sneaky previews of what I have been up to in my time away……


There’s crochet:


And fused glass:


Screenprinting:

And stained glass:


Patchwork:

And Tapestry:




And finally a spot of mosaic:



More detail in later posts…..

I’m looking forward to it.

I've been searching for you! I wanted to contact you directly, and I hesitated in case life wasn't being as gentle as it should be. So welcome back! And what cool things you've been doing!

I was one of the readers who loved your fish and wanted to purchase one -- are they still around??

What a productive lady you are! Thank you for your comment on my blog and I was very interested to hear that lots of folks were dressed up inside the RFH. I thought that might be the case from the photos I saw on Hemingway's blog. I really wish we'd gone inside but we didn't find the time. Three days for us next year!

Hello there!
I saw a comment you made on another blog and fell instantly in love with that cute monster in your pic and had to come see him!
He makes me laugh, he is sooo cute.
I also love everything here- you are one clever gal. Nice grannies for your cushions/ blanket in previous post- and I'm really interested in your glass fushion- that stripy coaster is beautiful.
Anyhoo am latest follower so I can keep in touch!
If you have the time, do pop over and say hi- I love a bit of crochet and crafting too!
Have a great Friday. Xx
