Of course little slips happen to us all, especial busy crafters! And today I was cutting some thick card with such gusto that I took a slice at my table cloth too!
But I have the best girly-pink duct-tape ever, so I snipped put a little pink shape to stick across the hole!
Then I used some other pieces to repair the cuts that Mary added to the edge of the table cloth one fine day!

Look at this handsome chap!
This year I am doing lots of pet portraits again, as we near Christmas. I always start by mapping in with black or dark brown ...
Then the fun part, layering on colours!
Then suddenly, he will tell me he is finished! I hope it helps you to see the photograph I was working from, too xxx

One of the better kinds of distractions arrived at our house at the end of November ...
Meet Topsy, a splodgy little kitten with a curious nature! She play hard and sleeps hard too ...
So nice to have a little companion on a school morning, or a cold winters evening ...
And she is growing like a weed! May prove useful to promote my work. On the other hand, might just eat it!

Here is a dog called Max. He has quite a lot of Alsatian in his barky self...

A dear friend painted the wood work in my lounge (except for the door) with a fresh lick of white paint, something i had never found the time to get round to! And that gave me the impetus to do a pit of patchwork and collage-ing , covering the walls beside the fireplace with a fun selection of wallpapers torn from sample books ...
I have covered the door in pages from two old bibles! And i bought this sweet wooden sign on ebay!
I am going to be papering the floor too, so watch out for that, and have begun to make a rag run from t-shirts, some of which have great memories!
This fun bunting was a gift, and it looks just perfect in my room. I usually make two-sided bunting myself, but again, have been very busy ... It has been battered by the wind hung on Bedouin tents on Weymouth beach, and has frayed beautifully in places!
Its been a long time since i painted these walls white, over two years, but i will soon have one complete room to enjoy!
And here are two really awesome wedding favours, that look perfect on my sconces! along with some beeswax candles from Europe.
Here is my favourite corner, coming together! That's a bird who has been set free!
