I have moved over all entries on this blog to what was my textile blog :

I decided it was time to present as a whole rather than compartmentalise

as I have been doing.

I want simplicity

one blog makes sense

in that case.

For all those who start their New Year on the 1st January 2010,

and those who started theirs on the Celtic calendar

I wish you all the very best

in every aspect of your life.

I shall be closing this blog completely in a few days time

so please bookmark the new one

many thanks.



Actually the theme was Christmas but, well, we are coming into Winter so this is my offering :

The “snowflake” I cut from a vintage cloth – table setting I think.  The ground is calico onto which I layered pieces of organza and netting, placing the snowflake on top, then stitching the whole.  I really liked the result 🙂

Presently at Soul Food Heather, the creatress and wonder-woman, is taking us on a tour of the many and varied delights to be found within the SF vaults.  I would encourage all of you to give it a whirl – you will find a link, click, perhaps be inspired by that first click, perhaps follow that link to another and another.  The site is an absolute treasure chest of all sorts of prompts, inspirations and creative ideas whatever medium you work and play in.  Do give it a go – here !

This is my first offering from the prompt: The Wild Things.   I had and have so many thoughts on this so there may be more to follow, maybe not :).

The text reads:

The wild things are

those thoughts unbidden

tumbling from my mouth;

those thoughts which maybe

should have stayed

well and truly hidden!
