Welcome to Craft Works

I hope you will enjoy the posts and pictures, please contact me with your comments and suggestions.

We came here to France, myself, Sheila and my husband Alan, plus Todd our Cairn Terrier, he is in the above painting, which I did last year, it is oil on canvas.

We bought an old Breton farm with a small piece of land with outbuildings, which we are getting around to renovating, it is a slow process, we finally have a kitchen, which we have waited 5yrs for!!

But please, call back, I hope to post on a regular basis, and dont forget! please leave a comment.


  1. Well Sheila, let us begin with the layout which we both think is excellent. Next the various topics which should bring responses from like minded people. We certainly hope that will be the case.

    You have so many interests and so many things you do really well and we think this shows. We wish you well. You can rest assured we will both visit very regularly.

  3. Hi, This is great. Much better than the other one. I like to watch to see what you are up to. Did my first project on my new machine yesterday. Will email you a pic later.
    I would like to have a go at the tumbling blocks quilt, but all the ones that I have looked at make it look so difficult. But will try this one.
    Keep up the good work. Looks good.

  7. Hi Sheila Wright, just sat down with a cuppa and thought I would look through your blog, there are not enough ours in the day to achieve all our hobbies I know but it is nice to see other people are as busy and do get around to doing all the nice things as well as the chores. Enjoyed looking through blogs from some of your on line friends as well, keep up the good work.

  8. Thank you for visiting my blog, I love to get comments, and I especially want everyone to enjoy this page.
    It gives me such a buzz when people I don’t know write to me. And the people I do know of course.
    Thank you

  10. Hello Sheila,

    I am in the U.S.A. I will be traveling to France in August of this year. If there is anything you need from the U.S. I would be happy to bring it with me and post it to you from Paris, since that is where I will be staying.

  13. Hi Mum
    Congratulations on the art exhibition. I hope that you will sell loads of your paintings.
    Isa has left you a message on my blog. He also says to tell you that he can no longer go on his computer unless he goes on about 4 in the morning. Hasan won’t allow it… lol
    He says to tell Alan that he is sorry for not talking to him more, but he needs to get to know him more.
    Hope you are both ok
