Day In The Life Round Up

UPDATE: Lee May at Bonbi Forest also did the Day In The Life – her’s is very interesting! Click here to read it.

Looks like it was just me and Anna at Custom Made who took part this time! Read Anna’s post here.

Anna, you get to choose the next date. Let me know when you choose!

The response to my recent craft-related posts has been rather overwhelming. Apart from that time in primary 5 when I tried to convince Caroline Hoy there was an initiation ceremony of having her head ducked in the sink when she joined our school, I never was one to be the ringleader but it seems I’ve really struck a raw nerve with a lot of people out there, especially in Glasgow. I’m surprised/saddened to hear the problem seems to be more widespread, too. The comments on the post have been great, so give them a read. I’ll be back with another post on the topic in the next wee while.



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!
