Another half-finished design that I’ve finally had time to get done – a little Art Deco feel Bonne Nuit cross stitch chart is now available to instantly download here.
Some more new stitching, this time though, I made the pattern. Danish grammar fans among you will know it should be hyggeligt as fuck, but hey, I’ve always been a rebel. You can buy this chart for your own purposes here if you so fancy.
I recently stitched this up for a Christmas gift for my pal, Jo. It took twice as long as you’d think because when I was about 3/4 of the way through, I realised I’d gone wrong in the border and had to unpick the whole fucking thing and start again. Still, it turned out well […]
It’s been a very busy few weeks here at The Bellwether HQ – Christmas is already in full swing! I’ve still found some time to get some new products uploaded, including this delicious donutty badge. Grab yours here. This week has been a full one of shop updates, product photography and um, yeah, reopening my […]
Image by Canvas Flair. One of the things that I used to get asked a lot is “when are you giving up the day job?”. I suppose it’s natural for people to look at me and my business and wonder why after over 10 years, I still haven’t gone full time. There’s a simple answer […]
I have expounded at great length in the past about why I fell out of love with Etsy. You’re probably sick of me talking about it by now. Perhaps you see my name or twitter handle and think, oh, her, the one who hates Etsy. I wouldn’t blame you, because it’s pretty much been my nemesis […]
I did the Blog Every Day In May challenge last time around (or was it two times ago? I can’t remember) and quite enjoyed it, so I signed up again this year. Of course, I’ve had a pretty busy week since I decided to do so, so haven’t gotten round to even starting it until […]
I thought I’d preface this rather dreary Day In The Life post with a cheery photo of me in my messy new bedroom from Saturday (see earlier post – this was clearly before I realised it was about vampires). Today, I have been trying to get my shit together and failing miserably. I slept […]
Oh, Etsy, this listing just tipped me over the edge. I’m not sure I can support a business that denigrates its loyal artists by allowing this level of fuckery. Via Regretsy.
Happy new year! I hope you had fun doing whatever you did last night. I had a glass of rancid wine after work and went to bed, rock and roll! This is my first post from the iPad – I like it but I miss a proper keyboard! I’ll get used to it though. I […]
Did we all have a good Christmas? I had a lovely one, quiet at home with my family. I was given so many gifts it took me literally all day to open them – we were still opening gifts at 10pm. I was truly spoiled. Actually, I was still opening gifts on the 27th, as […]
