Hello everyone – I know its been very quiet on the western front and thats because I am working on the final book edits. Yes it is nearly finished and I can’t wait! As promised I will give you a preview of what it looks like, hopefully next week when it is safely on its way to Australia.
For those of you who wanted to see the completed shading sampler here it is. I decided to make it level ALL as it would make either a good learning piece or could be used for practicing the different stitches. As you probably know in the old days they used to work spot samplers to learn a technique – this design is based on this concept. The individual motifs could be made up into little Christmas presents, such as a pincushion/spec case or put in a little frame, or done as a whole to make a nice cushion centre or framed in a picture.
The design is at the screen printers and should be available for sale next week. I will keep you posted. A little surprise for those of you who have requested the little pygmy kingfisher this will now be available in kit form (also next week). This is my early Christmas present to you:)
Have a wonderful week. Trish
