For centuries women have used cloth as a tool of comfort and as an expression of beauty within their homes. Creating cloth for warmth, cloth for shelter, our female predecessors embellished these linens with hand stitch using laborious and time consuming techniques thereby enhancing the functional beauty of objects which enveloped and protected their families. Inspired by these women I hope my creations pay tribute to and recognise the devotion expressed in cloth by our female ancestors .

Today i have been thinking about the PIF exchange I posted recently. I only had 1 reply and think it's a shame there are 2 gifts going spare so it will apply to the next 2 people to leave a comment on here.



I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.


(what does it tell you when you cant even GIVE your work away!!!)
Anyway, I started making my first gift today, so lets hope you don't have to wait much longer Gunnel. x

I'd like to take part in your PIF- I only got 2 people sign up on my page, so if you'd like to be my third? It's a bit disheartening not getting 3 sign ups!

It's even more disheartening realising I can't count about 2.

Karen, it´s not wrong on you if you!! It does not tell anything about you if you can´t give away your work!!! I think people are afraid to answered because they will not do the same thing; give away three thing! Many people have little time. My daughter said the same, she have only two who has answered on her PIF, and she has write it two times also!
