I really want to finish one beast, or significant chunk of beast when the frame rolls that way, every week. It’s easy with the tiddly beasts, but these dense borders take more work than you think.

This blog is solely for textiles, with a little bit of silversmithing now and then, and will mainly be for my historical stuff.
Please do not use my images or pin them without permission.
My interests range from ancient greek to tudor periods, and I tend to be an artisan rather than an academic - not that I don't do research, I just prefer getting my hands dirty.
I dye, spin, weave, sew and embroider, and have been doing so for several decades...
