Who doesn't love a handbag? I seem to have aquired far too many handbags along with my shoes and maybe it is time to part with a few... If you also have a love of handbags or know someone who does. This would make a great present for them. Framed up it would look great in any ladies bedroom or dressing room. Or why not even stitch it up and make it into a handbag! It's yours for free, just follow the read more link to download the free PDF file. Happy sewing.

I just had to share the latest pattern I've just listed in my Etsy shop. I am so in love with it. My garden is full of Rose's. They are such a perfect English cottage garden flower and I can't wait to see this beautiful chart stitched up by a happy customer.

I have been looking through old uni work again and thought I'd share some sampling I had done on a project based around underwear. Not quite sure how to explain my thoughts on this project so I'll leave the photos to tell you all you need to know...

I did a little bit of Christmas stitching yesterday. I haven't done much blackwork / redwork stitching before and wanted to try out my Christmas tree design that I have in my shop on Etsy. I think it looks really cute as hoop art but I have reused it as a card design.

Here's a quick and easy Black cat Halloween cross stitch pattern for you. It uses only full count stitches and only one colour. It's so easy you could whip up a few in an evening, so why not sew them onto napkins for a sophisticated Halloween dinner.

My latest design from my dinosaur collection at Spoonflower. Dino and volcano would make a great statement fabric for any child bedroom of playroom.
