I hope you all are enjoying the festive season with people you love.

It’s taken a while but I’m finally releasing my latest three designs: Te Mata Peak (miniature carpet), BrightSea Village’s School House and my first blackwork design, Fauntleroy Frog.

After being a bit jaded with stitching when I took on too much my love of needlework has returned and I’m now halfway through my next miniature carpet – a small Oriental style called 221B – and keenly looking forward to starting the next BrightSea Village project. Herse’s a hint: it’s a little bit spooky.

I’ve also had a burst of inspiration and have lots of new design ideas. If only I had more time to stitch them all up.

Wishing you all good things and happy surprises in the year ahead.BSV School Frog TeM
