Today, I’m offering Shawlands lovers a treat – this hand-stitched banner is down to just £5. There’s only one, so you can snap it up here.
Oh, yeah, one thing I am excited about currently is that I am going to be closing The Bellwether (lolz, again) for good this time at the end of the month. I am actually super happy about it – no agonising this time, it’s just going. I’m still ruminating about the future, but The Bellwether will be put so sleep in just a couple of weeks. YAY! It dead.
If you’re a newsletter subscriber, your details will be deleted after closure. The Facebook page will likely close at some point. Instagram and Twitter remain though, as they’ve always been more personal accounts, anyway. Etsy will continue to carry my instant download charts for the foreseeable future (though this is subject to change in future, of course). There may even be some new charts added (there may not be) as there are still folders full of them in my laptop that remain unpublished.
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!
