• Preloved Jubilee Needlecase

    Why I created Preloved Jubliee Needlecase. As we know it’s the Queens Platinum Jubliee this year 2022 and aren’t we happy that she has been on the throne for the past 70 years, I wonder what it’s like for her to have seen so much change in the span of a lifetime. I knew a few months ago that I wanted to make a handmade embroidery needlecase, but I had been waiting for my wrist to improve so I could do a major piece of stitching without it hurting, I have been doing physio each day, thankfully I have improved enough in my range of movement to drop down to…

  • Lizzie

    I really enjoyed working with Lizzie, she said “the workshop was great for mindfulness and bringing her into a state of calmness”. I gave Lizzie a private workshop experience before the actual workshop of Samines Red as she was stuck in doors with Covid, she choose to rest and heal herself before being fit enough to come back into the world again. During the workshop Lizzie decided to sew all her petals together to make one large corsage flower and I think it has worked out well. It was great to see her on zoom, I love zoom as it has opened up the world for people to connect who…

  • Anyone for Aqua?

    I swooped my swim for aqua aerobics on Wednesday 9th Feb, as I have been cat sitting for a friend in Peckham and as I was on holiday it felt right to do something different, so I went along to Peckham Pulse. Lorraine the instructor was brilliant and worked us hard and I was thankful that I have been swimming twice a week for physio reasons for my ankles, knees and wrist.  On Tuesday 8th I had tried a salsa video session and it flared up fatigue in both ankles and knees, with the aqua I experienced sharp pains in my knees, (I have been experiencing this since the accident)…

  • If I could show you, would you like to make your own Flower Crown Red?

    I was in my happy place making these flower petals, 5 flowers they were made into for my next live online workshop in teaching how to make your own flower crown red. I am quite excited in showing this technique as it is quick and easy and a new flower garland will be made in a few hours, so if someone is going to a festival, they can make it either on the day itself or if they were super organised the day or few days before.
