"Ever had a dream come true? Having a writing slope was one of mine, and this summer my Mum gifted me hers. It truly adds a wonderful aspect to letter writing. (And I have discovered dip pens make anyone's handwriting look amazing!)"
"Magazines of the early 20th century are so wonderful. Full of super unique advertising, gorgeous drawings (even in the ads) and interesting articles. \nThis 1920s advert for corsets gives a real insight into style in that era."
"Music is such a lovely background for any design. It can add a quiet mood in its style or be powerful in its message as part of your design."

Release your Creativity!

I have two projects that have lived with me most of my life: a cross stitch Chinese screen and a cathedral window quilt. Both must now be almost 20 years in the making, more or less. Probably more.

The Chinese screen I started when I knew nothing of cross stitch and managed to buy the finest cross-stitch fabric for my project, without realising it. I drew my design of bamboo across the 3 long panels. Add in some butterflies and started to embroider. I very quickly realised, as it took a day to do a leaf, that this was going to be a long, long, long time project.

The cathedral window quilt began after I worked in New Orleans' French Quarter, in a quilting shop. The shop offered beautiful hand made quilts from a collection of quilting bees in the southern states. My favourite was the cathedral window quilt and I determined, if I was going to make a quilt, this was the one for me.

Maybe I should say my projects chose me, rather than the other way around. But which ever way, I adore working on them (mostly in winter). In amongst these two long winded works I have knitted sweaters, sewn clothing, decoupaged, stencilled, and lately created a variety and assortment of handmade cards and journals.

There are simply so many wonderful things one can create. It's just about Taking Time Too...

    I was brought up in a house that made things, from a mother that taught me sewing to cooking to a father that taught me woodworking. That desire to create still carries on, with many projects always on the go. Some times I even finish them!
