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.
