Every time just like the last, on her ship tied to the mast...

Hello,
Thankyou so much for all of the wonderful comments I received from my last post.   I am so grateful for all the kind and supportive words. I apologise if I didn't thank you personally.

You may have noticed that I have a new header, which is a photo of a piece of Canadian patchwork quilt, sent to me by the kindest of Fairy Godmothers.   The beautiful textile piece was sent with trims, laces and silk, just because she knew I would adore them. 
Thank you so much kind lady

As you probably know, I have been very inspired by American primitive art and have been working on these characters...Peter and Pamela Prim.
I thought I would make them a little more three dimentional.


I'm really happy how they turned out and will be making more.

Finally, to close I just wanted to tell you that I am having a sale on a few items in my Etsy shop and for a short time, there is free shipping on every piece...if you fancy, take a peek :-)
Thanks so much for stopping by. x

Viv,

I LOVE your Primms - they are gorgeous. I hope you are feeling OK. I really do sympathise with your condition.

And THANK YOU for my jug. I keep my teaspoons in it so that I can look at it and use it every day. I drink ALOT of tea!

See you soon.

Just love the Prim family and incidentally, my daughter was born to Golden Brown, so those words have a soft spot for me too!

The fairy godmother may have sent a few scraps but that special creativity has brought such delightful characters to life... they are charming and whimsical.
Though we are all separated by distance the threads of cloth unite us.
Love the new header too.
