On Friday I made a cushion out of old fabric and felt & then started some new embroidery.

Apologies for the bad photo, it's been gloomy & rainy outside for ages now and the light for photos is terrible even in the middle of the day!

Last week I decided to write a story. I used to write quite a lot, but haven't done anything much for a while. I came up with a few little pieces, one of which I decided to submit to The Pygmy Giant where my friends Emily and Giles have had stuff published in the past. They emailed me back on Friday to say they were going to publish my story, which I was both surprised by and very pleased about indeed. You can read it here.

It is a little bit unusual for me to show people what I write, but seeing as though someone liked it enough to publish it, I thought I would put a little link to it here.

New Year

Happy 2011 everyone!

Apologies for the lack of updates recently. As you may or may not know, in September I started a Masters course at University, so I've been busy doing lots of coursework over Christmas, along with eating a lot of food. Alas, I have not had too much time to do much in the way of craft stuff.

I did get this for Christmas though..

A manynicethings stamp, to save me writing it all out by hand! Speaking of Christmas presents, this site can now be accessed by typing into your address bar. Eventually (when I get a brief pause between hand-in dates) I will sort some sort of holding page out with links to this here blog, flickr, shop and the like.
