Meet Bertie!

I thought you might like to meet the latest addition to our family.

His name is Bertie and he is an English Springer Spaniel just like his big Brother Murphy.

He and Murphy are not actually related, but they both seem to be on the same wavelength (happy, gentle, hyperactive, lovable rogues!)

He's been with us for a couple of weeks now, and he came to us with a few health issues. But lots of love, good food, play and rest seem to be working wonders for him. We've got our fingers crossed that he grows out of some of his health issues, but whatever happens he's one of the family and we'll love him just as he is :)

Have a great weekend!

Stitch Gathering 2014

I'm just popping in to tell you all about the Stitch Gathering 2014 Retreat that is happening in September in the very beautiful city of Edinburgh.

Last year's retreat was fantastic fun and this year Jo is set to run it again, but it sounds like it's going to be even better!

I'm really excited to be teaching again, alongside all the lovely ladies that taught last year.

I'll be teaching two classes, the first is a reverse applique hoop, which is a quick and pretty little hand-sewing project that can be completed in class.

The second is an english paper piecing class where we will be making a panel using apple-cores, one of my favourite EPP shapes! 

You can find out all of the details on the Stitch Gathering website, and book tickets too!

I can't wait! Are you going?
