cotton spools

I finished painting 4 new cotton spools today. They were so much fun to make last autumn/winter and made beautiful little tree decorations – added bonus. These fresh little faces will be in the shop soon so keep your eyes peeled.

I got my tickets for the Classic Thriller Season which takes over Nottingham Theatre Royal this August! HURRAH! I’m WELL excited! I also treated myself to this beautiful Orla Kiely folder – perfect for storing stray doodles… sigh, so pretty.

    Nice work! I love the folder too – I was given a ring binder from the same collection for my birthday last week. Makes filing appealing, all of a sudden…

    I do adore that folder *sigh* I’m also going to see one of the Thriller plays at the Nottingham Theatre Royal! August time is Thriller time! I also went to see Dylan Moran a few weeks ago. I really like your work and I hope to see it on Saturday at that lovely Malt Cross (a favourite place to eat and drink of mine) Have a lovely day!
