Treasury from Etsy

Another treasury from Ben and Randi from "Raise Giant Frogs". Happy to see they have included one of my prints.

On my drawing board today. I must admit I haven't ever really taken a close look at a porcupine until I decided to draw one. It is rather a fascinating creature, bigger than I imagined, weighing in at about 14 kgs and 80cm in length!

Tactile Toys

A friend asked me to make some 'tactile' toys for her baby (and extras for gifts.) There are different types of ribbon...satin, velvet, shiny, smooth,ridged,  narrow and wide, worked onto a crochet base. You can put a bell inside the cushion to make it even more interesting. A felt nose and embroidered mouth and eyes all makes for rather a nice homemade toy.

New Necklace Design

A new necklace design...Pointed Oval Links the name of the pattern.I used white seed beads for the 'leaves' with charcoal beads for the border. I made this as a gift for a friend and put it in a bag made from old sheet music. I also used the sheet music for the card.It really was very simple to make and always nicer than a bought card.


A gift for a friend. Handmade paper, string, and leaves for decoration and a card. I always collect leaves on my walks and never really know what to do with them. Now I have found a way to put them to good use.
