As much as I enjoy snapping away with my digital camera and phone I love taking photos with my film cameras. There’s just something magical about not knowing whether or not I’ve managed to capture anything. If I want a … Continue reading
I thought I’d show you my progress on the 100 day project the I mentioned in my last post. So far I’m enjoying the challenge of creating different circles every day although, as I work irregular hours, it can be … Continue reading

After a year of stitching our panel for The Great Tapestry of Scotland it’s finally finished and is being stretched at the HUB before being framed and going on display. It has been a real privilege to work on this … Continue reading
I thought you might like a sneaky look at some of the panels which are being stitched for the Great Tapestry of Scotland.
Some of the stitchers working in and around Glasgow met up with the organisers and artist Andrew Crummy at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. This was to check our progress and order more threads. It also gave me the perfect opportunity to take some sneaky pictures for you.
As you know I’m not the world’s best photographer. Combine this with the low light of a Scottish winter and my photos have not turned out brilliantly however I’m sure you’ll be able to see enough to recognise the amount of time and effort which each stitcher has put into their piece.
If you’d like to see more photos I’ll keep the Flickr group updated and the GTS team are updating their Facebook page all the time. Until then I’ll leave you with a bit more of Dumbarton Rock and our lovely Artgal.
Back in August I put a call out for help to embroider a panel of the Great Tapestry of Scotland (you can see the post here). Shortly after that five of us got together and we’ve been stitching ever since.
The whole project is community based and there is scope for more people to get involved as the artist left some spaces for local stories to be added. As the panel my team is stitching depicts Dumbarton Rock I got in touch with The Dumbarton Reporter who have not only published a piece on it but are interested in a follow-up story. Woo hoo!
Will let you know more when I do but until then if you have any information about the history of Dumbarton Rock or surrounding area you think should be included in this pictorial piece of history please get in touch with me.
It will take us until March 2013 to complete our panel and you can keep up to date with our progress by popping into our Flickr group every so often.

I thought it was about time I made something for me and when I heard of the Flickr Group http://www.flickr.com/groups/charityshopchallenge I decided that I would marry the two. At the end of every month I hope to blog about my charity shop … Continue reading
