Currently working on another Cincinnati-based piece, which if you’re at all familiar with the city, you’ll know instantly what it is. And if you’re not, then stay tuned for the finish!

A recent completed piece – Cincinnati Music Hall. I designed and stitched this in summer, 2018.

This image, taken from Wikipedia, is one of the reference points I used. I’m fairly pleased with how it turned out.

Deal Of The Day

Today, I’m offering Shawlands lovers a treat – this hand-stitched banner is down to just £5. There’s only one, so you can snap it up here.

Oh, yeah, one thing I am excited about currently is that I am going to be closing The Bellwether (lolz, again) for good this time at the end of the month. I am actually super happy about it – no agonising this time, it’s just going. I’m still ruminating about the future, but The Bellwether will be put so sleep in just a couple of weeks. YAY! It dead.

If you’re a newsletter subscriber, your details will be deleted after closure. The Facebook page will likely close at some point. Instagram and Twitter remain though, as they’ve always been more personal accounts, anyway. Etsy will continue to carry my instant download charts for the foreseeable future (though this is subject to change in future, of course). There may even be some new charts added (there may not be) as there are still folders full of them in my laptop that remain unpublished.

Send no flowers, toll no bells – this is happy news for me! Meantime, things will remain cheap as chips until it’s all gone. So please make it all gone by getting your shop on here.

Clearing Out

We’ve been doing a load of clearing out at home, rejigging our house in anticipation of some visitors in March. It’s a good excuse to get organised, paint the hall and all sorts of other things we hadn’t gotten round to in the nearly three years we’ve lived here (I know, THREE years – some sort of record for us!).

The next major project I have to sort out is my office space/studio/shithole. Once you get started rationalising possessions, streamlining and such, I find it very easy to carry on and apply those principles to everything and that means business, too.

So, you’ll have noticed a much sprucer and slimmer catalogue of products, which will be honed further still and you’ll also see that over 80% of products are now HALF PRICE. That means that when current stocks are gone, they’ll be gone and won’t be coming back for the foreseeable future.

For example :

Zines, banners and keychains remain full price currently, but have all had a price review to keep things current. I suggest you take advantage of my rationalisation and bag yourself some bargains before they’re gone!
