Not Just Stitching

You know, there are other ways you can use your stitching patterns. I have used some of mine for latch-hooked rugs, knitting designs and, recently, mosaic. This one was done with junk mail cut into 2mm squares, using part of my Bee Happy Pyramajig pattern.

The Starfish Restaurant – Opening Soon

I’m on the final side of BrightSea Village’s restaurant. Of course I’m already looking forward to my next project and have my fabric and cottons picked out in anticipation.

Happy stitching!


Frame and hang him or make him into a Couch Critter. If you love vibrant colours, as I do, I think you’ll enjoy stitching Fiesta.

This is the first of a series of Couch Critters I’ve designed. I’m looking forward to building a colourful collection for my couch.


It’s A Couch Critter!

While Fiesta, the Couch Critter, waits to be released I am well into stitching The Starfish, BrightSea Village’s restaurant.

In the Corner

Just this little bit in the corner to finish now. This has been a fun stitch with all the bright colours. It’s a good project to take out and about because the repeating designs mean you don’t need to always be consulting your pattern.
