A bit late for Christmas......

I was working on a group of patterns called 'Victorian Christmas' but didn't quite get them finished for LAST Christmas. I know some of you like to get started on Christmas cards early, so they are on my website now.  Here is one of them.

I'm getting ready for our new one-day workshops at Holmebarn Crafts and at Barton on Sea.  I hope everyone who attends enjoys them as much as I do.  There is nothing so infectious as other crafters' enthusiasm and ideas.  I always come away from our days tired - with very sore feet - but with loads of ideas buzzing round in my head.  If you are interested in any of our workshops, I try to cater for all abilities - and we do eat a lot of biscuits!  So its good fun.

'Let's go Shopping' again!

Two more shops added.  One is the Music Shop and this is the bakers...
I think there needs to be a Pattisserie pattern at some time as I couldn't fit in the cream doughnuts and chocolate cakes!

New free pattern for January

A Happy New Year to everyone.  To cheer us up in this awful weather, I've put another free pattern on the website.

Its traced with sepia pen and coloured on the reverse with blendable pencils - and if you don't drink coffee, there's an optional birthday greeting which fits on the design too.

New Free Pattern

This is my latest free pattern, designed by special request for a lovely lady who wanted a Christening Card featuring a church font.  It's all whitework - and if you're a bit worried about over-embossing, I often add a bit of white pencil on the back of the parchment - sssshh!  Don't tell anybody!

By Special Request.

I had promised myself that I had done my final Christmas design for this year but how could I resist this special request from Lynn B.  Thanks for the suggestion Lynn, and I hope you like the finished design.

New Free Pattern

There are never enough patterns for men, I am told, so I hope this helps.


Another Christmas design by special request......
