First Post

I've set up this blog to encourage me to get on with both my stitching and experimenting with textile art. My new Log Cabin (Studio) came in kit form this week and I hope to have it fully built and ready to move into by the end of Easter week. I can then concentrate on completing my textiles for 2 Exhibitions in June and October. (I have a lot of fabric stash sorting before then!)
