Christmas is coming and the cat has gotten fat.

Long time no type, but i've been looking after my baby and cat and have had a period of creative drought, so i hope you can forgive me and let me know what you think of my new project.......

It started out as a simple task, to design and make Christmas decorations for the Burton Art Gallery & Museum Shop (please like our page), so i've been mulling it over in my mind for a few weeks. We had a delivery of logs and i always find great satisfaction in piling them up with the round loggy bit facing out, a new Angie Lewin book arrived in the gallery shop which is absoloutely beautiful and i started noticing the dried seed heads of various wild plants in the hedgerows. These 3 factors combined have driven me to produce these....

I think i just discovered why the cat is growing fatter at an alarming rate. Note to self, do not leave plates or cups on the floor.


  1. Very delicate and sweet, seed heads are amazing and your little creatures go really well with them.
    Love your cards and the embroidery is fantastic! I know all about being at home with bebs and not blogging for ages, all seems too much yet the inspiration doesn't stop, I just need more time and energy!!
    good luck with the Christmas decorations, don't forget to blog about them! Amy :)

  2. i love this log-weed tableau. very clever.
