Lovely June

I'd just like to say hello and welcome to any new visitors to my site.

Please feel free to leave comments if you like. You can also contact me at for any further information.
My weekly blog updates are on hold for a few weeks as I am busy preparing for
Crail Arts Festival.
The art exhibition is open daily from 21st until 31st July from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm in Crail Town Hall. I won't be there myself but a variety of my work will be on display including framed textile art pictures, handmade cards and textile jewellery.

I've been doing plenty of this this week.

Hopefully the weather will hold for a while yet and we can all enjoy this marvellous June some more.

Sea Inspired Wrist Cuff

Regular readers of my blog will know how much I love the sea and how much I enjoy playing with my embellisher machine.
This cuff is inspired by the sea, especially the waters around the Isle of Iona.

It is also inspired by my cousin Lynsey. I made her one similar last week and got it to her before she headed off for the summer. Lynsey loves to travel and these are her favourite colours. She also has an affinity for the sea.

I added the vintage pearly button to add to the sea theme and lined it with a beautiful stripy muslin in toning shades.

I have been listing lots of cuffs in my International Etsy Shop but this one is available from my UK shop at
