Hi Honey! I’m Ho-ome!

I know, I know. I’ve been away from here for far too long. It goes like that sometimes, and as a person who is easily distra… ooh, look, shiny…. where was I?

My partner and I had a “bit of a year” last year and moving into 2015 has created a focus I wasn’t expecting, but am delighted to feel it. A line has been drawn under 2014 and here I am, back at my blog and back in my studio for at least two days a week. Whilst here I hope to share what I’m doing with you, and you can share with me if you fancy.

Meg, Gordale Scar The focus is shifting slightly too. I am a person of many hats; textiles / creativity is only one of them. Another is dogs and animals, and my “day job” is Mekuti, selling specialist equipment for dogs with behaviour or confidence problems. I would like to share aspects of that side of my life with you too.

Last year I set up The Textile Tutor on Facebook, where I share videos and information. I am in the process of transferring the information across from there to here so that you can have some fun with textiles yourself and not have to faff around finding the right place to be!

Tomorrow, we are doing something very exciting, and I will spill the beans when it’s happened. You will just have to wait and see…

Meanwhile, I’m just so excited to back here. I hope you can hear it in my voice.

Turning around to face where I’m going…

I am a great believer in our ability to listen to the whispers and be guided to who we truly are. In the past this has involved meditation, t’ai chi, mindful walking, journal writing and so on, i.e. a conscious … Continue reading

Gratitude Bunting

In my box of unfinished projects I have material to make bunting for our lovely Bell Tent and do you know what? It’s in the “unfinished projects” box. It’s almost becoming an instruction. Put it in the box and stop … Continue reading

Balls!

Many moons ago I was introduced to the editing suite at college via an early Media Studies course (yes, it felt like a cop-out course because learning really shouldn’t be that much fun, should it?). I spent hours in there … Continue reading

‘Round and ’round in circles…

I’ve had one of those really frustrating days which leave me feeling like I’ve been bounced between all the “shoulds” in my life; I should get all of the orders from my day job out ASAP, I should answer that … Continue reading
