Happy New Year…
So, despite the fact that I haven’t posted anything since July last year, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth! I’ve just been busy earning a crust, so unfortunately the old blog has gone to sleep for a while.

Since my last blog post I’ve…
…made some pretty lovely personalised name bunting for my gorgeous nephew Marley – complete with elf-y fabric;
…designed and decorated an engagement ring box for a friend (she said yes!) – mice featured quite strongly on this one;
…designed and constructed a very large, striking curtain panel for my fella’s birthday – he appreciated a curtain as a birthday present, honest;
…made Quilt No. 2 (this was a biggy – with a total of 220 patchwork squares, hand embroidering of a large portion of Pigling Bland and more bobbin thread than you can imagine);
…become Aunty Vornie for a second time to the delightful Finley!!!;
…designed and knocked up 7 fabulous Christmas cushions for that big family of mine (not at all last minute…);
…made a start on Quilt No. 3 (watch this space…);
…and worked full time on jewellery production at the dutch jewellery company Exoal.
