The little birds...

If you watch little birds you will see they are busy and happy! Using whatever they can find they create the most gorgeous little nest.
I would be the little bird with some glittery thread in her nest!
We can be like this. Happily working away with the things that are available to us to create a beautiful and happy home.
All the while with a little song in our heart.

Once I embroidered continually and sold quite a bit, after stocking glory boxes and giving embroidered blankets as gifts.

Then I had ten years off! This year I started searching for soft blanketing and got a shock at the price which was ten times what I used to pay!

A beautiful online friend, Jacqui, read what I had said about this and she took it upon herself to go to her local woollen mill and see what she could find and she sent me a parcel of wool blanketing! Jacqui you helped launch me back into my embroidery. 

Heres a picture to show some of what I've done. These are my favourite projects. I make up the patterns from looking at adorable childrens books.

Thank you Jacqui.xx
