That looks a lot like a fishcake.

Friday again. It’s been a long week. That is usually what I would say on a Friday, but it’s inexplicably true this week especially. Time always seems to pass more slowly when you are hotly anticipating something, I guess.

The weekend is stretching out in front of me and for once I have NOTHING planned. At least, I don’t think I do anyway. I suppose I should really do something worthwhile, save a few otters or something, but in reality, I will probably spend it sitting on the sofa, spending quality time with Sky and the newly-rediscovered Gameboy Advance.

It snowed today! But sadly, it’s all melted now, booooo.



I’m Claire and I live near Glasgow, in Scotland. I have strong family ties to Cincinnati, too and regard it as my second home. If I had to describe myself in five words, it would be thus: Does. Not. Suffer. Fools. Gladly. I’ve been cross stitching pretty much all my life, but professionally since 2005, first as Miso Funky, then as The Bellwether and now under my own name. I'm known for my witty, sarcastic and occasionally profane typographic designs. My work has been featured in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Channel 4 and on BBC television as well as numerous media outlets across the globe. At one point, I was kind of a big deal but I mostly just dabble in it these days when I have time. My website is a repositry of cross stitch charts, travel and food blogging and you'll find it at I also love to travel and eat, ideally travelling somewhere great to eat something brilliant. I'm fascinated by social history, particularly the Victorians and will absolutely beat you hands down in a quiz about the Tudors. Dogs are LIFE. I like being in water and have lots of ideas that will never see the light of day but would definitely be a winner on Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank. I love to give people gifts. I! also! overuse! exclamation! marks! sorry!
