Happy weekend

19th Sep 2018

I said last wednesday that we had been to a wedding and the picture was taken at the breakfast 'party' the following morning. This shows my two sons and two grandsons with me, one, aged two in the rear of the picture and a 10 year old enjoying his breakfast.

Taken on a retro camera that prints the film out from the camera so really just 'snap' photos. I remember them years ago, but with a piece of leather added to...

Time away

12th Sep 2018

David and I had a few days away last weekend as my eldest son was marrying his lovely partner. It all took place in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside. Thankfully, although not the sunny weather we have got used to, at least it was dry, so all the children there were able to get outside and play which meant their parents had chance to relax as well.

 Two designs shown here, the jolly Santas and the Folk -art Christmas cards are in...

Change in the weather

5th Sep 2018

I think with the changing weather here in Britan and yes, officially it is now Autumn, many of us will start to do more stitching. The nights are already closing in and my thoughts are definitely looking to the closing of the curtains as it becomes darker outside. 

There are quite a variety of ideas for seasonal designs on my website Shop, with these decorative Father Christmas as just one idea. Find more at this link: www.lesleyteare.com/shop/seasonal

Nearly September

29th Aug 2018

David and I have been very busy in our garden recently, trying to get it sorted before there is a real change in the weather. The photo shows three Granny Smith cooking apples growing on the small tree that is growing against a wall and I think the top one alone will make two apple pies....

Prompted by a request from a stitcher, I have just added a design of a Christmas angel which I hope you will like. It was...

Blackwork designs

22nd Aug 2018

I'm hoping I can add the pictures that have been sent to me by Marg O'Neill of four of my blackwork designs that have been stitched on 16 count and the french knots replaced with small black and blue beads. I think they look stunning and not least with the way they been framed.  You can find all of these and more of my Blackwork designs at this link:                      ...

Happy birthday Tilly!

8th Aug 2018

Yes, Tilly is one today. She is a lovely companion and a real pleasure for both David and me to have around. Her dog training hasn't quite gone to plan because of the extreme heat so her lessons with Paul have had to be cancelled, but she seems to be doing well....most of the time. 

Not much different on the designing front this past week, but just busy with a few commissions. My floral SAL will shortly be ready for the...

My new Sunbonnet Sue design for August is ready to download and I will pop this on my Blog as a separate item for you all to download.
