Lobster, crab and shrimp and all that are the insects of the sea, it’s true.

Breaking news – you can get Wispas in the Spar!  I was in there yesterday morning and they had TEN boxes of them.  You should all go buy them NOW so they bring them back permanently.  But would they taste as good if you knew you could get them anytime?  Hmmmm.

I forgot to say I also went to see Calvin Harris last weekend with Marveline.  The very excellent Errors were supporting, I hadn’t seen them before but I liked them a lot.  Especially the guy at the front’s apple jumper.  Calvin had tonsilitis so did a half-assed best off high-speed run thru of the “hits” and was back in bed within the hour.  Poor boy.  I would like to go see him again in Nov as even tho the place was populated by loons high on mega-expensive Becks, the atmosphere was pretty good, re music/party vibe.

I am so bored at work I could shoot myself in the face.  I don’t even care that I could be getting monitored doing this – I am past that stage.  A P45 would be a welcome distraction today!



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!
