The Brain Doth Fizz

I did finish the 2AM piece, it just needs a damn good pressing now as you can see.

I added some stitch and now it's hanging on the door just to see if it needs anything else.  The window position in the gallery is a bit ignored in the scheme of things but it's bright enough it might catch a few eyes and draw them in.  It's 43 x 28 inches. 

The last couple of days I have been using up the last of my lovely Harris tweed making A5 and A6 notebook covers.  I have a Folksy account as yet unused and I thought I should give it a go.  I didn't enjoy the Etsy experience as I found it just too awash with imported crap.   At least Folksy is UK makers only.  I know the stock will be few and far between but we will just see how it pans out and these will be the first things in there very soon. 

I know they have a rather strong Pointer theme but they will be profit to the GSP charity sales.  

I have a couple of thoughts swimming around in my head which I need to get on with and I have also been playing with some beautiful Prima moulds. Still a little un focussed on that one but there could be another WoW video for them.  

Off to have a light supper, my tum has decided to play up the past couple of days and I have a BIG walk this Sunday and I need it sorted by then. 

Have a great weekend! 


  1. Love those pointer-themed tweed covers. Don't blame you for bailing on Etsy. It has gone way too commercial for my tastes and I can't imagine trying to hawk any of my wares over there with any success. Too much to wade through, too much low-pricing on even the good stuff.

    1. I use it as a place to buy stuff similar to eBay now. It's totally lost its core purpose.

  2. Love your 2AM piece, it will look stunning against a window.

    Hope you feel better soon :)

  3. Your 2AM piece is beautiful. Hope the walk goes well x

  4. Loving the window piece, and still trying to work out how you made it!!! The book covers are great too - did you brace the embroidery machine or are the patches from fabric? Hope you are feeling better xxx
