She wishes she sewed by the seashore...

Two new treasuries!

Tickets Please...featuring my vintage Admit One tickets in the Magpie store...

...and Biographical, a wonderfully evocative treasury featuring my Havisham maid.

I'm really getting around, aren't I? ;)

Having a tea-break in the middle of a great studio day today I became obsessed with the juxtaposition of some new pieces I'm working on, and my favourite bread and butter plate.






I love the pattern on this plate so much that I'm considering getting it as a tattoo!

As you can tell by the collage words on that antique button there, my fixation on the sea is growing. I've never held much of an interest in that giant puddle before- I don't even like goin' to the beach! Never-the-less, I've been hankering after some seaside time, when the weather's bad. Trouble is that Australia's summer is looking over my shoulder, and there's scant chance to get to the beach alone, let alone without clouds to shelter me and bring the storms over the water.

That's a fab idea for a tattoo - where would you have it?
You should come to scotland for some bad weather by the sea - we've had a stormy week!

Finally de-lurking, i love your work and sense for detail and colour :)

I forgot to add that you'd love this book by Robin Brown. She does decorating and clothing. All shabby and a bit torn, you'll like her style.
