 A happy Monday to you - a chilly yet bright start here. Thanks always to the artists/photographers featured in this week's mosaic. I hope you may find some inspiration - a mix of spring and autumn shades in this one. I'm always interested in the textures and colours of nature, and how they may translate into photography and paint, and textiles.

Thanks again to everyone who visited my updated shop since last Wednesday. I was considering adding just a few more pieces at the end of this week - before I take a short break for the Easter hols - but I don't wish to rush things and will need more time. Therefore my next update will be later on in April. (I've circled Wednesday 22nd April as a possible but will let you know, of course).

Over half of my new zine 'something else' has sold. So it won't be long until it is limited stock. I know a few people in the UK have already received their copy and are pleased with it, thanks!

So this week I will continue on with new stitches and painting - working in my sketchbooks too. I did not get much time for my sketchbooks last week but hope to consider more ideas on paper in the days to come.

Take care and more soon.

many thanks

Many thanks to everyone who has visited my shop (updated yesterday). I am now busy putting packages together - a batch has been sent today and I will be sending more tomorrow. As always I am very grateful for your interest, especially as it has been a little while since I offered embroidery..... I hope that I may just have a few more smaller stitched pieces for my shop toward the end of next week. Will let you know here, of course.

Meanwhile, I still have copies of my poetry zine available, about half are already spoken for. Thanks!

It's gone all chilly here today - some days are more spring-like than others at the moment. Looking forward to sowing some flower seeds at the weekend.

shop update

forget-me-not forget-me-not - a larger portrait in stitch

New works now available in my shop..... this has been an intense time of tiny stitches, making zine copies and painting too..... Thank you for taking a look at the new selection.

Please note: I am happy to reserve any one item, for up to two week. However, I am not reserving zines. Contacting me and sending a message is easy, just click the contact link over at my shop. Happy to help.

If my time allows I may add a few more works toward the end of next week. I'll be taking a short break during the start of April but will be around for sending packages etc...

Thanks always.
