Happy Holidays...

These are my new 'winter hanging folk', they remind me of characters from an old 1950s American movie involving a huge twinkly department store with a moving Santa in the window, ice skaters, and maybe a bumbling but hansome Cary Grant!  Vivid imagination I know; they are felt people... get a grip!

Still Here!

I have not dropped off the face of the earth, and am indeed still here.  I have been really busy with pre-Christmas making/designing/general stressing 'stuff'.  Any how, here are some pictures from 'The Stitch and Knit Show' at Alexandra Palace.  Myself and the lovely Gerry visited last week and had a nice if not rushed time of it!  Here are some images of work from the Gallery section...

The embroidered truck door and hand-embroidered ribbon were quite amazing.

Terrible Twins!

Found some images of  mittens I made last year from recycled jumpers; thought they were apt with the weather getting chillier.  I always  get amusing comments when I wear my pair of twins!
