You may have had a sneak preview of this last week when I started it and accidentally clicked 'publish'. Its been showing up in Google reader.(Be warned..even deleted posts will come to haunt you so don't write rude things and then think its been deleted without trace)
After the scary 'King Kong' creepy crawlies mentioned in the previous post I thought I'd share this with you.
I wonder what it is? I've never seen such a big beetle in the North before. It was about two inches long,
Willow trod on it by accident but it continued on its beetly path.
Now here's a handstitch canvas work interlude (because I haven't done anything new for ages)
I used the 'holes' to do free stitching with textured threads.
I must say I enjoyed it.
But its a bit of a distant memory now.
I know these awards go round and round.
I have received this one again from Beate
I told her I'd already had it so she took me off the list, but I decided I would accept it as a way of linking to other blogs you can read.
You have to award it to 6 (or is it 7) other blogs and link back to the one you got it from..so it increases readership. Good idea.
I've been reading Carols blog for ages and its always full of lovely stuff she's been working on.
Heloise has a nice colourful blog.
One of my favourite reads in the blogosphere is Ethel and Edna's Tearoom. Its full of love and creativity.
Sesga Loves 1950s is another lovely read with lots of little dolls, Daisie Days is a family, sewing and babies blog ..a peep into a part of life I once had!
Kate at Beautiful Things has a good tale to tell, and I've laughed and cried reading her blog.
Lets go for no 7.
I adore Caroline Inckle's paintings and textiles. They have such a mystical quality, and always make me think of the Northern Lights which is very appropriate, as she lives in the far North of Scotland.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
