Lighting Up BrightSea

Although I’ve described BrightSea as a seaside village there isn’t much except the name and a smattering of seagulls to indicate that. So I had to fix that situation by adding The Lighthouse. There are seaweed covered rocks, sand, sea, a fish and even some penguins.

Beginning Oakford Bridge

BrightSea Village’s lighthouse is now stitched and in it’s “post production” phase and I have started on the next mini carpet, Oakford bridge. Not much to see yet. Look out for further progress reports.

Three Down; One To Go

The stitching’s been slow but steady and I’ve now completed three sides of the next part of BrightSea Village. This piece actually appears in the stained glass window of the Wedding Chapel . No time to write more now. I’m too keen to get back to stitching the last side.

Here’s Heath Lodge

You know each new mini carpet I release becomes my latest favourite but I’m so in love with this one. After Robillard Ramble I got the bug for the antique French look and designed a couple more. I can just imagine them in a dollhouse Petit Trianon. So . . . here’s Heath Lodge.


I’m now happily stitching the next addition to BrightSea Village. It’s something flashy. (I’m trying to be all mysterious here, but last time I did that it took about ten minutes before someone clever had guessed what I was doing.)
