Welcome to my newsletter, hello to new subscribers
Well was a busy time with stitch, art, documenting and sketching....
During the pandemic stitching as sort of overtaken my time a little, I have produced a lot of stitching. You tube is steady and I post as often as I can, I do find that videoing on my mobile poses a few problems of ' No more space'....such a nuisance.... I must sit and delete; it is so timeconsuming!!
I was recommended to use an APP called INSHOT for videoing - I must admit it is really good and easy to navigate and edit your video's; the only downfall is that once you film with it and transfer your video to its destination you simply have to store the inshot videos, if you remove it, it has the power to delete the video whereever it may be. So this poses problems for storage on my humble mobile phone.mmmmm...

A swap for stitchwork pieces is something I would like to do in the future; I will put my feelers out for this on my blog and see if I get any interest?
