My lovely friend Sally – @chasing.tigers has released a fab new pattern just in time for Christmas and I had the great fortune of receiving an early version of it. Pull Bang Pop is a fun and easy patchwork project to celebrate the festive season. The table runner will add a bright and fun centre…… Continue reading Santa Claus Lane Fabric – Pull Bang Pop Pillow
I’ve already written about my love for Beauty and the Beast and the wonderful collection by Riley Blake Designs. (Click here if you missed it!). You may have also read about my Beauty and the Beast cross stitch I had started. Well fresh off the hoop, here it is! Seriously though, how cute is this!?…… Continue reading Tale as Old as Time
Most of this week has been about taking things slow, drinking tea and cross stitching. Going slow is not something I’m particularly good at, but for my mental and physical health it’s what I’m doing. I’ve been working on various cross stitch projects at the moment, simply as there is nothing more I feel like…… Continue reading Slow stitching
Just over a week ago I released my first pattern and today I would like to share the versions my wonderful testers have made for me. I was blown away when pictures started to come through, it was so exciting to see a pattern that I had designed being made into actual items! Such a…… Continue reading Stitch and Go Case – Tester Versions
I’m so excited today to be sharing with you my first pattern – The Stitch and Go Case. As you know I’m a keen cross stitcher, and especially a fan of an SAL (sew-along).

Then with so much going on in the world, it was a case of finding the right…… Continue reading Its been a while!

Not a whole load of sewing going on over here, what with Mabel’s pre-school being closed, and lack of concentration with all the worry over everything, I haven’t really made it onto my machine. I have been happily hand stitching as much as I can though.…… Continue reading Animal Almanac – Month 3
I thought we could all do with a bit of luck at the moment, and what better way to share that then on St. Patrick’s day, one of the luckiest days! This Lucky pattern I stitched up last year is from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery (who else!?😆). I’ll admit though, I have only just framed…… Continue reading Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Two years and 3 months after I first started this cross stitch and a year and 3 months behind the sew along I have finished my Into the Jungle! I can’t tell you how satisfying it was to put that final stitch in place! I think this fabric is telling me it wants me to…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – Completed!
I’ve said it many times but sewing is my therapy. My escape, my opportunity to zone out from everything and enjoy what I am doing. I have never been very good at sitting and doing nothing, and of an evening I must have a stitchy project of some sort on the go! I’ve also mentioned…… Continue reading Keep Calm and Cross Stitch
