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:

This week I have been captivated by the beautiful embroidery work on display at Folksy. Choosing just these six was really hard!

I love this cushion by maxemilia.
There are so many more unique designs
in her shop I struggled to pick
just one to feature!

The Glass Mountain Kate Popovski's work is just a joy to behold!
The sweetest little characters depicted
in such glorious detail and simplicity!
View more of her work at her shop

For something quite different but so much fun
you would struggle to find better than this zombie
embroidered notebook
by fiona t
Irresistibly cute! view these and other adorable shoes at BellaBella

Aren't these cupcake pin cushions great? They're by Mitbits and come in a huge range of colours!

And finally, I can't blog about embroidery at Folksy and not mention the work of Lynwoodcrafts,I've chosen a brooch called 'Heather Hills', she manages to capture the texture and light of nature so brilliantly in all her work!


  1. Wow those cupcakes look good enough to eat! Great find!

  2. I love that you've done a blog post on embroidery, I really like Fiona T's notebook covers! In fact I like all of it and thankyou for including my purse in such a lovely selection
