Give away.

My amazing friend, Deborah O'Hare, in England is a fabric artist like you have never seen.

This journal she made is made from kitchen roll that she coloured and stitched together.

She is giving away, very kindly, a copy of the latest book she is in. Full of inspiring projects all centered around the beach. We all love the beach. Pop over to her blog" Quilt Troutes " have a look around, you will be in ore and become a fan like me. Follow the instructions to enter and keep reading. 

Then go to her other blog " The Blue Hare ". Yes she is so busy she needs two blogs. Deborah not only shows the fruits of her amazing talents, she actually shows you how to do it for your self. I know ! Who does that for free these days ? A Brit called Deborah, thats who.

When you have drank lots of tea, eaten so many biscuits and wanted to rush around your home gathering all you have to try what she is showing you and then decided to buy kits off her, have a look at this entry called " Playing ". This is my fav. Well I cant pick a fav really, however I totally love what she has done here.
I could go on and on about this lady but I think it best for you to go see yourselves.


  1. Your blog is incredibly delightful. I love this journal, it is gorgeous. I never would have thought of using paper towels, but why not, they are strong, and absorb water colors and inks in some of the prettiest ways. I'm looking forward to following this blog. I know it will be a fun adventure. Your newest follower, Connie ..............Please come over for a visit, my welcome mat is always out, and I would love to have you follow me as well. I'm an artist, photographer, paper crafter, musician, singer, and lover of life.

  2. Hello and welcome Connie. How amazing is Deborah ! A very clever and giving artist. Thank-you for stopping by. I shall have to go and visit you, you sound like a person to enjoy.

  3. Wow! Thank you so much Helen for this lovely post. I am very appreciative and very humbled :)

    1. Deborah your work is amazing. You are so open to sharing. I was having fun telling every-one about you. My cousin and Mummy back home love your work too. Keep being you.
