The weather has been so beautiful lately that my sunglasses are finally out of retirement and what do you need when toting around your favourite shades? A sunglasses case! I wanted to make something with the new tweeds using the... Continue reading

Yesterday was a particularly lovely day and I had a bit of a jaunt out to the countryside. I had some of my Liberty print make-up bags and shower hats to drop off at the Green Gallery in Buchclyvie……. They... Continue reading

I like these resin bow bag fixings so much that I bought half a dozen so I could make a few wee bags in a variety of fabrics and colours – there is something very satisfying about their ‘boxiness’ plus... Continue reading

I had the idea for these wee bags a while ago – before Xmas in fact, but have only got around to making them in the last couple of weeks. I like to mix colours and textures in my work... Continue reading

When I was up in the Outer Hebrides 18 months ago I met the person who runs the Harris Tweed Authority and she showed me some beautiful photographs and graphics that they were intending to use to publicise, and update... Continue reading

So, now I am back home again but not empty handed, oh no!! Apart from some great memories and a wonderful sense of well being having been mentally and physically restored, I have more black pudding than you can shake... Continue reading

Our final day on the islands was a bit overcast but it perked up once we entered Stornoway. We had plenty of time before we needed to get to the ferry so we took a drive up to Tolsta which... Continue reading

The following day dawned bright and sunny and we set out bright and early for Huisinis – the most westerly point of the Outer Hebrides. I had been there once before a few years ago when working on a student... Continue reading

After a hearty breakfast of bacon, egg, sausage and Stornoway black pudding we made a quick pit-stop at the tweed vendors before heading up the road to Lewis. Stornoway is roughly 50 minutes drive from Harris and in comparison to... Continue reading

I notice that at the end of my last post I rather smugly wrote that I would be blogging from the Outer Hebrides – well, obviously that didn’t happen! Although there was Wifi in the hotel I couldn’t get the... Continue reading

I feel like I am riding the crest of a creative wave at the moment. I have so much energy and so many ideas swirling around that there don't seem to be enough hours in the day. Perhaps it is... Continue reading

I was fortunate enough to be commissioned to make a bag by a lovely lady (another stallholder) I met at the Spring Fling at the Creggans Inn recently. My being there was a complete fluke - the owner had bought... Continue reading

Today’s offerings come under the banner ‘Hanging Decorations’ – I am rather partial to a hanging decoration and they can be picked up relatively inexpensively all over the place! Most of these have been bought at craft fairs directly from... Continue reading

I made the decision a while ago that I would try to replace all the posters and reproduction prints on my walls with original artwork as and when I could afford to. Alot of my friends are buyers of art... Continue reading

Today I am going to be talking about 3D art/sculptures. I always think of sculpture as being big, almost monumental, but I have a few pieces of 3D art that are pretty small but none the less sculptural. I have... Continue reading

I am so impressed - well done! I haven't even managed to start a sock despite having a mountain of wool and several books on the subject.

As a voracious reader I have thoroughly enjoyed the run up to World Book Day (March 3rd) and the fabulous programmes relating to it. I have particularly enjoyed ‘Faulks on Fiction’ and ‘My Life in Books’ in which 2 different... Continue reading
