• Embroidery is all about capturing form and texture to please the eye.  I tend to get carried away with all my ideas and don't focus on the technique as much.  So although this might not be competition material, it most certainly is enjoyable!

Hi there! I am an South African expat, living in the lovely Kent countryside in the UK.
I love everything meaningful and beautiful - so I try my hand at photography, painting, embroidery, needlework, cooking and writing.

My inspiration for all of this: the people that I love,
and the love that God has for me.

Feast with new potatoes

What a privilege to dig up new potatoes from our own garden! (Not me, but my very able husband who loves gardening.)


So I had to whip up a lovely Sunday lunch – to be enjoyed outside with the patio heater making up for the winter sun not being able to give the necessary warmth.

A friend with a zest for all the beautiful things in life had to get a her own version of a serving heart symbol – with pink rosebuds and a plump heart full of love. Ronél is good at the art of juggling ministry and raising young children, being a helpmeet who encourages her husband in his ministry and in fun time with the children.
