Welcome to the land of Clootielugs where squirrels, rabbits and their like rule the roost. I love to make and sew and find inspiration from many sources although nature in its many forms tends to be the thing that fires my imagination most often!

You can see and purchase many of my creations on Folksy:

As a Scot married to an Englishman I've been viewing the World Cup almost by osmosis. More than the football I'm loving all the positive scenes of South Africa! I know there is alot of hardship, crime, social problems and injustice there but for once, like the South Africans themselves I'm focusing on the good stuff. In celebration of their land ( and surrounding African nations) here is a selection of African influenced delights from the talent at Folksy...and what with all things tribal in fashion this season..(so I'm told) quite 'on trend' too, I think you'll find...!!!

Please go follow the links to this selection below to see what other wonderful creations these makers at Folksy have to offer.

I've had a busy week building up stock for a local festival in July at which I'm hoping to have a stall - more later! I've got some new designs I'm very happy with in addition to those for sale on folksy and that I hope will sell well.
I had little mix up on last weeks Folksy Friday and managed to message the wrong seller for one of the items I featured. After apologising I have decided to make this weeks theme 'mixed' as in 'mix up' or 'mixed media' or 'variety' or any such interpretation! See what you think of this colourful mix they've certainly brought much needed colour to my blog!
