There is an Easter design perfect for card making and this very sweet little elephant which would be great for any makes for spring new arrivals.

It has been wonderfully warm for a couple of weeks on the East Anglian coast, amazing for March in the UK. We have had people on our beach, normally empty at this time of year! The photo was taken last weekend. However April arrived and the temperatures have gone back down to normal – it’s currently 10 degrees here at midday. But the sun is out so it’s not unpleasant for our school Easter holidays. We have the National Kite Surfing championships taking place in nearby Clacton-On-Sea next weekend so I hope to take some great photographs! I shall post any decent ones. Meanwhile have a very Happy Easter whatever you are up to.


I can’t believe it’s April already! But outside the sun is shining and it’s definitely getting warmer, which is brilliant. The coast is a great place to live when the weather improves, for the last couple of weeks Walton has been coming out of hibernation with all the cafe owners getting their shops ready for another season.

I have had a few days ‘sick’ with an infected tooth, very painful. I mostly slept due to the medication. But today I am back ready to get on with my designs. I am stitching out a tiger as I type to check it sews okay.

WE have a weeping cherry tree on our front lawn which is now in full bloom, it looks lovely. My next design may have to be blossom!
