{ Sunday Post } New Door Collection

Good morning,

Hope you've had a good week, I've had the dreaded lurgy but feeling much better now.

Is anyone else a little obsessed with pretty doors? They've been the inspiration of a new card collection...

They're available to buy from my Etsy shop if you fancy a peep.

Workshop: Saturday 11th February

Well hello there,

How have you been?

Yesterday I taught my FIRST ever freehand machine embroidery workshop to 8 students at New College in Swindon. I can't tell you how nervous I was, having never really taught 1 person let alone 8! But let me tell you, I had the best time.

The 8 ladies on the course were so lovely and enthusiastic that I quickly felt settled and excited to share with them the wonderful medium of freehand machine embroidery.

Their work was fantastic, from initially getting used to the machine without feed dogs to adding patterned fabric to their stitches, they did brilliantly. Such a creative, friendly group.

Needless to say, I can't wait to do the next one. Keep an eye on my workshop page for more information.

Happy New Year


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

I thought I'd do a post rounding up the highlights of last year and what a year it was for my little business...

It started off with getting my first stockist in the Merchant's House in Marlborough

Next the wonderful Emporium Art Gallery in Lichfield exhibited a collection of my Lichfield Stitches and cards...

I was also delighted to be approached by Country living to have a little ad in their mag...

And of course the whole year was filled with you lovely lot ordering house and venue portraits from me....

The thought that my work was part of your Christmas days just makes me beam from ear to ear. So THANK YOU for all your orders and support in 2016 it really means a lot and here is to an even bigger and better 2017!

Happy New year Everyone
