I never do my bedding in a drier. I put it on the line.


Did I ever mention that I love tombolas? Well, I do. And what is the blog giveaway if not merely an online tombola that you don’t even have to pay to enter?

Glasgow’s newest crafterette, Laura Donald, is having a giveaway to celebrate 100 posts on her blog. If you’ve not read it before, then you really should, as it’s very entertaining and also full of inspiration.

Pat and Dot up there are just one of three prizes that you can win in the raffle. The others, the Hulder print and the Big Daddy print are both available to buy over at Miso Funky if you are not lucky this time.

Everyone’s a winner!



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!

One thought on “I never do my bedding in a drier. I put it on the line.

  1. Thanks for the publicity! I’m sure lots of disappointed entrants will be heading in Miso Funky’s direction this weekend 😉 A girl can dream…
