Looking back, and forwards...

A glimpse of some of my favourite images from 2013, some things I've made that I'm really happy with and me and my stall at the Selvedge Winter Fair. Thanks to everyone who comes here to read and look and thanks for all the lovely comments you leave, it's good to share the things I stitch with you.  I'm looking forward now to 2014 and I've got lots of creative plans, I'll share with you along the way.
