Celebrating Beatrix Potter!





Good morning all.

Well today is not really about stitchery but an artist never the less.  I am celebrating what would have been Beatrix Potter 150th Birthday this week...

She has been a huge inspiration to a lot of us and was the first person to sketch and paint animals in clothes and in such a delightful way.

A lady before her time, who had the forethought to buy up farms and land to preserve them from development, which would have with ought a doubt happened.

She was a pioneer of woman in her time with writing and illustrating books that made her an income as a single woman (unheard of in those days) which she put to good use.

What a wonderful and talented woman, thank you for all your inspiration for me and thousands of others ...

The little film is delightful and a little different from stitchery, It will make you want to get out there with nature today and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did .....

I am off to the Vintage Bazaar Giant Jumble today so there will be a blog about that next week sometime.


Have a wonderful weekend and as always Happy Stitching! XX

  1. She certainly was a lady ahead of her time. I think if she lived today, she would have embraced today's technology
