Give It Away Now

I always find it tedious for both the reader (you) and the writer (me) when making such bold statements as I’m going to blog every day for a whole month, but that’s my intention. I should have picked February though, not a 31-dayer.

For today’s fascinating installment, I am merely going to say that I’m holding a giveaway over at Miso Funky, where you can win your very own cross stitch iPhone case.

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!

  1. I’m not doing Blogtoberfest this year (been hit by a dose of realism) even though I really enjoyed doing it last year, but I’m glad that few of my favourite bloggers are – lots of extra posts to keep me entertained! No pressure, but I’ll be keeping a wee beady eye on your blogging 😉
