Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures - in stitch and otherwise! And I hope that you will leave a comment so that I know you have visited.

One of the nice things about a trip to UK is to be able to indulge in a little retail therapy, some of which can be done on-line before hand. This means that on my arrival a little pile of packages is waiting for me!

Last weekend one package contained this beautiful package!

And there were even a few extras

'Found' is a series of 12 stitched textile pieces by Stephanie Redfern featuring her favourite subjects - fossils, bones ,insects, geology and text.

Inside my envelope were 12 A5 cards each featuring one of Stephanies pieces.

The textiles are made from a variety of materials including fabric, paper, screen prints, digital prints, machine and hand stitch and beads.

Here are some of my favourites but they are all fascinating pieces that I have seen evolve on Stephanie's blog.

My macro lens has distorted the images a little - sorry about that.

Last year you may remember me posting about Verity - Damien Hurst's statue in Ilfracombe. Well someone made a very kindly gesture on Tuesday morning!

Penny Clark took these photographs of Verity wearing leg warmers this morning.

Enjoy your day
