Last blog of the decade….

Well… it’s the end of a decade and I’ve been looking over my blogs, which I first started in 2016 and I’ve posted 210 so far!
I’ve taken a little look back and see that I have posted a lot of blogs about drawing, it is my first love and as my husband is fond of saying, he needs lots of expensive kit to keep himself amused – but I can pick up a pencil and a scrap of paper, start to doodle and immediately get a contented grin appearing on my face.

Also popular has been decorating little boxes – mostly from The Works, I love these and have a set for earrings which are the best storage I have ever found.  But I just donated a whole load to a charity tombola as I couldn’t sell them.

I’ve painted quite a lot of fabric, table clothes, napkins and cushion covers mostly.  I was incredibly inspired by Maud Lewis.

There has been plenty of sewing, my sewing machine is currently playing up so I need to get that sorted as I have piles of fabric.  I love sewing and have friends who are truly accomplished and I endeavour to be as neat!

The world of miniatures has been a big thing for the last few years, and I’ve made plenty of bits and bobs for that! Fimo polymer clay is fun to use and dress making at 1/12th scale is a challenge!


I’ve crocheted, felted, painted on glass and ceramics, made lace, done calligraphy and furniture upcycling…and plan to continue to do so.

thanks for reading.
Happy New Year!
Love Rosie
