Back at the beach!

Another long gap between posts - been a difficult and busy few months since my dad's passing in May, but things are slowly coming together and I have just moved back to the coast - my favourite place, Port Alfred in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.  So happy to be back here!  And now, hopefully, I will get back to my various creative pursuits, including a new cookbook and more mice - maybe a couple of seafaring or fishing ones!

I also recently completed work on a craft book featuring the mice, which will be published in France by Editions de Saxe - hopefully in spring, 2017, all going well.  This book will be available worldwide - I think! - but obviously in French only at this stage.

Hopefully be back to write more soon, in between some sunbathing on the beach!

Great news!

Hello again - after a fairly long silence!  Well, at least I can say I have been busy - lots of new little mice to show on this blog.  The good news is that the beautiful magazine 'Daphne's Diary' is going to be doing a story about me and my various creative endeavours later this year - including the mice!  So that is something to look out for.  I am also continuing to work on my two books featuring the Mice of Rosebud Lane - the craft book, and also the children's book, Camomile's Teapot, with recipes and watercolour illustrations - see the image below!  Enjoy and talk soon...Gail xx
