Wind your neck in, cunto

Day 5 of luggage watch and apparently they are on their way!  I would be slightly more joyful about this if I was certain they were coming to Glasgow, but BA Cargo at Glasgow told me this morning they are currently en route to London with no forwarding after that.  So I called the baggage lady who told me that she had just entered the forwarding from London to Glasgow and that I should check with them on Sunday/Monday as they should be at Glasgow.  Guhhhh.  Fingers crossed!

In other news, baby McChesney is here!  How delightful – they named him Aidan and he looks like quite a guy.  Congratumalations guys!

Yesterday afternoon, I spent chatting to TV’s Lowri Turner about emo-broidery which was quite exciting.  The robot lovers are going to be in the Mail on Sunday apparently, so watch out for that.  I have been sewing loads over the past few days as it’s now July and the c-word is not a million miles away. 

Today is Lee’s birthday, hurrah!  I have still got presents to wrap and am waiting on his birthday cake baking as I type.  I am quite the little housewife today.  I also have to get going on the ebay listing, so I should push off now and do all that.



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!
