New design and Update

Introducing my latest finish - Samantha. Samantha explores variations of shade and texture using threads from a single colour range and varies the pattern of stitches to highlight the changing colour. This design is 6"x6", uses 7 colours and will be available from my website in about a week for £5 (UK orders only - overseas orders include appropriate P&P costs)

Natalie should be available on my website later today if my computer behaves, I have been having a few technical problems. It will also be onsale for £5.

I am adding a progress piece here in the hope that it gives me the impetus to finish it. This is going to be a very long term project. I started it back in 1991 but RSI forced me to abandon it. I think the time is right to try and finish it.

This is a castle where I stayed with friends and the first large piece I started designing. I have now a massive job ahead to take all my faded pencil drawn bits of chart and transfer them to computer before I even get to carry on with it so don't expect to see it onsale very soon.

New Birth Sampler and Update

This is my latest finish, a Cross Stitch and Hardanger combination birth sampler. In keeping with the rest of my hardanger designs I have given it a girl's name which may seem a little odd as it was initially designed for a boy but it will be provided with colour keys for both boys and girls. It is to be called Natalie from the latin natalis : birthday.

Suzanna is now available to purchase directly from my website but for the next fortnight will also be available, along with my other hardanger designs, from the Online Cross Stich Expo http://www.cross-stitch-expo.org/ . Designs will be available at a special discounted rate from the expo site.
