Catching up....


I'm so sorry I have neglected this poor blog for so long! I have just realised that it is almost a year since I last posted here...

As you can imagine with a very active one year old to care for, I get very little opportunity for stitching, but I've been looking back and I have made some things I haven't show you here so I thought I'd share them with you. I have posted some of these on instagram already so if you follow me there you will have seen them. I have to confess the immediacy of taking photos on my phone and posting on instragram is so much easier for me at the moment... I can do it one handed for a start! than taking 'proper' photos with my camera and uploading them to the computer and then writing a blog post. Unfortunately I almost never get chance to do this but I am going to try to as I'm grateful to all who follow me here - I'm sorry for neglecting you!




I made myself this little sewing case, I almost never make anything practical for myself and I've made needlebooks to sell in the past so I thought it was high time I made one for myself, Here is the inside...



This little box I made to house something special...



...a jay feather that my husband found for me, it is such a small, beautiful and delicate thing, I thought it deserved a special home of it's own.


Another little box I made, just to celebrate the beauty in nature....





I've also been working on a larger piece that is far from finished but I've been managing to do little bits here and there. The words are the lyrics to a song written by my husband.





That's all for now, I'll be back soon, I promise!

Some gorgeous stitching here and I love the repurposed cases - it was well worth waiting for!

Dear Christine, what a joy to see your post. I absolutely love the jay feather box and the acorns and your husband's songwriting stitched down, again a pure 'gentlework'. Gorgeous! xxx

You were missed! Having a wee one in your life is definitely a good reason not to be blogging, so we're happy to read your posts when you have a wee bit of time.

so nice to see your wonderful creations you have been working on and including words written by your hubby is so neat. Having a little one around can be very time consuming but the best job ever :)

Your work is one of the most beautiful things I've ever beheld. Thank you so much for sharing. I follow on Facebook, but as someone wrote earlier, it's a joy to see many photos together.

Lovely to see your blog again. Having a baby will not leave much time for yourself or your followers so I am just happy to view when you have time to post. I so like your transformation of boxes into little works of art.

I simply love the acorn and jay feathers - it is the little details that you add that make your work so special.
