It was such a great event: the sun shone, visitors came in their droves, and there was the usual excellent array of crafts.
The highlight of my weekend though was doing a swap with the amazing Katrin Moye. She chose a few of my houses and I eventually decided on these beauties!!
I was exhausted by the end of the 3 days (thanks to all of you fellow bloggers who came and said hi, it was so wonderful meeting you!), but after a few days of taking it easy, I was back in my shed, doing what I love best!
This piece, named "Harbour Street", is my new favourite. The base is a great bit of curved hardwood - once part of a boat - with the original nails still intact....perfect for tethering a few boats to!
Finally, I just want to say thanks for such a great response to my last post! There is still time to enter the giveaway - you have until the evening of Saturday 22nd. Good luck!
It seems like ages since I created anything with fabric, but I was delighted when Mollie Makes approached me to make something new for a future book, to be entitled "Feathered Friends".
And nearly 12 months later, here it is!!
It contains over 20 projects with clear step-by-step instructions.....
....featuring crochet, sewing, knitting and more!
And here is my little contribution!
The book is published by Collins & Brown and is available here, but I have a copy to give away!!
And I am going to offer a separate prize - the prototype I made!
Who's a pretty boy then?!
To be in with a chance of winning either the book or the finished parrot, all you have to do is leave a comment underneath. I will announce the winners on Saturday 22nd June. Good luck everyone!
I shall be packing up the van tomorrow and heading off for the event of the year, The Contemporary Craft Festival! This year should be extra special as they are celebrating their 10 year anniversary. Hope some of you can make it - if so, come and say hello! (I'm very friendly!)

Hi- thanks for visiting my blog!
I live in Cornwall with my partner and 2 young sons and we all love the beach! I have a background in illustration and printmaking, but now prefer to combine my love of beachcombing, textiles and all things nautical to create unique handcrafted cards and home accessories.
So why call the blog sixty one A? It's the number of the beach hut which has been in the family for about 4 decades. My siblings and I virtually grew up there, and now our children can get to enjoy it too!
