How are you? I am delighted to let you know that last night I put the last stitches into the final project for the new book and it is finished! The manuscript and projects will be shipped to the Publishers in Australia next week in time for my deadline at end of March and hopefully the book will be released before the end of this year. I have been working on this book for the last 18 months and although I am relieved it is finished, each project has been a joy to stitch. The book title is Whitework With Colour, and I hope to be able to give you a sneak peak of some of the projects very soon.
You know when you watch a DVD and at the end it shows you the deleted scenes? Well it is the same with a book, not all the projects that are stitched actually go into the book. I will stitch a whole lot of projects and then at the end choose the most suitable ones to go into the book. So I have decided to give you one of these “deleted” projects as a gift for Easter. The name of the project is Miss Dior, she is a lacy, pretty, stylized flower in monochrome shades of grey, black and white.
You can access the PDF file here: MISS DIOR. You will need Adobe Reader to download the file, if you do not have it you can get a free download here: Adobe Reader download. Happy Easter to you all and I hope you enjoy it!
On Friday I am going away for a few days to a holiday home near the beach with my family for a well deserved break and the shop will be closed till the 23rd March. Meanwhile, wherever you are in the world, keep smiling, happy stitching and remember: “Embroidery Forever, Housework whenever”.
