Work in progress....

I quite enjoy hibernating........

Jane made me this adorable 'primitive' doll for my birthday using scraps from an old quilt.

I've decided to call her 'Lotte', and thought that she would be most comfortable sitting in an old sewing thread box with a little Suffolk puff coverlet to keep her toes warm!

There's nothing I like better than waking in the morning knowing that I have not got to get up and rush out to work. I lie curled up snug and toasty warm under a mountainous feather duvet, and think...and plan....and doze again....until I find another hour has passed unnoticed. I am certainly not an early bird. I am a night owl, preferring to work late into the night when I am at my most creative and productive.

I have been immersed in my sewing studio these last few weeks making things for the Fair; here are some images of work in progress.

Jane and I got together today to photograph the image for our publicity cards for the Homespun Easter Fair, hope you like the result!

If you go to our Homespun Fair blog here I have put up a list of who's going to be there (the list is by no means complete, we still have room so if you are interested in exhibiting, please get in touch asap). We have some lovely newcomers as well as old favourites (not so much of the 'old' I here you cry!) coming along to sell their wares. It promises to be a delightful day out!
(P.S. it will help us immensely to publicise the event if you click and drag the picture onto your desktop and then insert it onto your  side bar if you have a blog. Thanks so much!)

Tour de Force

All this blustery weather has put me in the mood for some Seth Lakeman; I was lucky enough to see him play live in Falmouth a few years ago, and all I can say is he was electrifying. Enjoy the following clip!
