Another Tilly week

18th Oct 2017

I can't say that I have been very hard at work this past week.......some how, a little bundle of fur has taken up quite a bit of our time. Tilly is now 9 weeks old and a bundle of energy; not phased by anything it seems. The vet said it's because she has been bred from good 'working stock' ......perhaps he is right. The problem will be whether I have the skills to train her..... time will tell.

I have added...

Welcome to Tilly

11th Oct 2017

Finally, at 8 weeks, Tilly has joined us at home. Sandie, our 13 year old Cairn, seems quite happy, and for two nights now, both have slept together in Sandie's bed. Our next purchase....a larger bed!! ......must get a picture, this morning's attempt was blurred....too dark to really judge what I was doing.

Are you all ready for the Christmas house motif for our SAL? Remember it will be out for you to download this Friday 15th October.......it should be a...

Glorious seahorse

19th Sep 2017

Just in case you don't follow my Face Book page, I am showing this stitched design of my seahorse by Brenda Allan here this week. This chart can be found in World of Cross stitching 259 or it will become available, if you can't get hold of a copy, from my Shop page around February 2018.

 What I like is that Brenda has 'done her own thing!' without compromising my design.

She stitched it on 14 count white Aida and to keep...

Alphabet for the Christmas sampler

15th Sep 2017

A stitcher asked if I could provide an alphabet chart so that she could personalise her cards that she will be making. I thought this was a lovely idea so here is a simple chart for you to use.

As an example I have added titles of the motifs to our sampler design, with a slight exception at the bottom because of spacing; but it will give you, hopefully, some ideas.

Please find the chart for the latest motif - the poinsettia...
