Weekly website updates 14th August 2017   

Read my latest blog: Embroidering applique orchids

I have two all time favourite flowers, orchids are grown inside my home and fuchsias grow outside in my garden and many of the tender ones are over wintered in my greenhouse.  It has taken me a long time to finally digitise one of these beautiful flowers, the phalaenopsis orchid. Earlier this year I tested out the orchids by creating an embroidered card for my sister who also loves orchids. To make them more realistic there is an option for the sepals and petals to be stitched out and added as applique held in place by the column, lip and throat of the orchid.....

 Orchids for Ruth 1 will be released on 16th August now.

Weekly website updates 7th August 2017

The first set for 4" by 4" hoops will be released on Monday 14th August. We also only weeks away from my 10th Birthday event. Make sure you join my Embroidery group before it starts so you can download the daily freebies.

After the Romantic Crazy quilt 13 is released I have a new set of tiny designs for the Une Petit Princesse collection. Use them for dolls and baby clothes, or to make your own combinations.


Weekly website updates 15th May 2017   

Coming this week! Romantic Crazy Quilt 13 in a "Dresden" style with detailed PDF tutorial. The block can be stitched in one hooping with a 260mm wide hoop, two hoopings with 200mm wider hoops. You can also embroider it in smaller sections if you are limited to a 130mm x 180mm (5" x 7") hoop. There is a special template which will help you keep in alignment with each hooping. This photo shows the results of my first test. The satin stitches have been widened and the motif stitches between fabric sections changed so the fabric is hidden.
