Some groovy news!

Dear Friends,
Some exciting news! I am travelling to the UK on the 21st April and will be there until early June, tootling around with my Mum who really does need a holiday! After that we go to Paris for a few days and then onto Rome via Florence. Needless to say I am so excited. I am going to try and blog whilst I am away and will be travelling with a little notebook computer I am yet to buy!

I would love to meet up with blog friends if possible - providing the itinerary works! Drop me a line if you would like to hook up.

In the meantime here are some teeny weeny strawberries about the size of your thumbnail. We have to grab them quickly otherwise our feathered friends enjoy them instead of us!

Aren't they just so inspiring for a piece of artwork. Embroidered, painted, felted, beaded............... whatever!

Looking at the little things gives pockets of joy to every day - if we take the time. Don't you think? Sometimes one day seems very like the day before, but tiny things do change and hunting for them can be a challenge.

Hoping to hear from some UK friends in BLOGLAND,
Every best wish


  1. sounds like a great trip!

    i'm a newbie reader to your blog, but it would be lovely to meet up if you are going to be in scotland at any point?

    the pic of your strawberries is lovely, you're so right about looking for the little things. now that i have discovered the macro function on my camera i have a totally different outlook and can spend hours looking for little details in the garden, and the fact that it all makes for great felting inspiration is perfect!
