I live and craft in England (or perhaps “live to craft...”?). I love colour and I love pretty things.
I must have been a magpie or a butterfly in a previous life, such is my attraction to colourful and shiny stuff (aka, pretty, shiny things).
This blog is my attempt to make sense, and keep track, of what I make.

Sewing outside the lines – take 2
Although I have dedicated this weekend to repainting my entire house (well, that’s what it feels like), I couldn’t resist playing with some spare cotton from an old sheet, a huge embroidery hoop, and lots of ends-of-reels-of-thread on my sewing machine.
Better than my first attempt, doncha think? (you can tell I started with the green, can’t you?).
Yes, my name now has two little hearts above it, I wasn’t paying enough attention when I did the first one, which turned out to be over the “r” instead of the “i”.
This turned out a lot more fun that I thought it would be. I still have some issues to work on, but the hoop helps a lot.
