The one with the waggley tail...

here are two little reproduction vintage doggy brooches, made and hand painted by yours truly.

 I make Gnome brooches too...they are very busy, running nowhere in particular with a suitcase and brolly.

 This little Doggy I have adhered to an old piece of quilt and a little Swiss trim, 
to make more of a textile brooch.

 Gnome sweet Gnome, here has had the same treatment.
 So I hope you like my new line in brooches...there will be more designs in the near future.


Just to say that I will be exhibiting at Selvedge Spring Fair on the Saturday 23rd March.
Please come and say 'hello' if you visit on that day.
Thanks for stopping by. x

Quentin Blake Video

I wanted to post this link to a fabulous ten minute Video with Quentin Blake.   I love every second of it and if you haven't seen it before...I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

In pitch dark I go walking in your landscape, broken branches trip me as I speak...

me again!

For the first time since the V&H Fairs at Chipping Sodbury, Gloucestershire started, I will not be having a Stand.
I feel that having stood at each Fair over the last three years or so,  the good people of Chipping Sodbury and the wonderful visitors perhaps need a break from Hens Teeth.
Hoping very much to visit though and enjoy browsing and making a purchase or two :)
Here are the details...


I will, however, be having a stand, just one day of this two day Selvedge Fair...
so excited!   
Don't know which day yet, but will let you know when I find out.

There has been a whiff of, dare I say, Spring in the air today...last weekend driving snow and this weekend sunshine and the birdies singing!

Help for Gretel


I hope all is well with you and yours.
You may of heard of the Raffle taking place in Blogland?   
The very talented Gretel Parker of middleofnowhere Blog recently lost her lifelong partner, 
who sadly took his own life, leaving Gretel with no-one in her life, no parents, no family.
Three friends of Gretel have created a Raffle Blog, which many makers have donated work to.   
You can buy a £1 ticket or more, if you wish, for a chance to win something lovely 
and all the funds go to Gretel... to help her rebuild her life.  
Here is the Raffle Blog FundsforGretel 
Please forgive this rather poorly worded post, but I just wanted to post the links out to all you lovely folks.
Thank you for stopping by. x
