Appy New Year

20130101-165927.jpg

Happy new year! I hope you had fun doing whatever you did last night. I had a glass of rancid wine after work and went to bed, rock and roll!

This is my first post from the iPad – I like it but I miss a proper keyboard! I’ll get used to it though. I saw this print on etsy via Facebook earlier and thought it was pretty apt for today, not only because it’s a new year and a new slate, but because I think I’ve finally hit upon the new name for my business to replace Miso Funky. I’m wearing it in for a few days but I think it’s staying.

Now, back to my hard work today of lounging on the sofa with my furry friend snoozing on my feet.

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 www.antibullshitleague.com. 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!
