Lovely images and beautiful works of art! I tracked a link from Helen Smith's Flickr account to her blog to the website of Boutonnerie. Such beautiful buttons and it will be so useful!

I've loved St Ives since I visited in 1975 and 1976...would love to revisit on longer than a day trip from Penzance. Alas, A day visit from where I live is completely out of the question. Maybe sometime in the future. You live in a beautiful "town?"

Hi, I've been dropping in on your blog for a while, and now officially following! Love all your beautiful embroideries. I haven't done any for a while but am very inspired by your stuff. I see you are selling stuff on Etsy, I'm just trying to pluck up courage to, guess I'm scared that no one will buy my books! I'm only just up in north Dartmoor, not far away.Nina x

Hi, Just want to say how wonderful I think your work is, and that you should know I've used you as a main artist reference in many of my college projects for inspiration. You inspired me to create my own patchwork quilt last year for my Final Major Project, and whenever I see a few of your projects on your blog it inspires me to start creating!
Keep up the beatiful work!
take a look at my blog, there is a post on the quilt I made. SarahJ x
