Firstly, I've been designing! Oh yay!!
First off is a free Halloween chart..yes, free. Offered on Witchity Poo's fb page and also offered here. I can't put a pdf file here but if you email me on firstname.lastname@example.org I'll send you the chart. I really enjoyed designing Trick or Treat...it was great fun!
And I was on a ball with a brand new Holmsey Hare project. I wanted little ornaments but Holmsey wanted something a bit different! He's so awkward!
So we came up with three panels which can be stitched alone or stitched together as one larger picture. It features some new characters and friends of Holmsey, some of whom may or may not appear in the second children's book!
Release details will follow soon. Unfortunately after having a concept stolen by another designer (who did exactly the same thing with yet another designer), I can't reveal too much too soon...but I'm really looking forwards to this one and stitching the model!
I've released two new designs for a charity called Rainbows for Peace and Comfort. It's a charity page which has ' formed to help bring comfort and peace to all those impacted by the Orlando tragedy. We are a group of Cross stitchers who will be making quilts and other items for all. Please join us by stitching, supporting us and watching the projects grow.'
One has been stitched by a lovely man called Timothy who helps run the group.
Ying and Yang on black fabric. Beautifully stitched Timothy!
And the other design I donated is:
It's a worthwhile charity with things being made for the families of those who were lost in the nightclub attack and for the first responders.
Now, a little more Holmsey Hare news!
Paula from Bear Tails Illustrations has been busy working on the illustrations for the new book 'Can I Be a Hare?'
I can't show you the full pictures but here's a sneaky peek at some of the illustrations and the materials used for them.
It's all a bit wonderful isn't it? I love the colours and the little snippets that will become something wonderful!
Health wise; I had to miss a chemo this week as it seems I had an infection, probably caught from having to spend hours and hours in the A and E with my son. It's all good though: just part and parcel of what cancer is. I'm making the most of having a weekend where for once I feel normal!
I'm actually going to sit and stitch now! And about time too!
Have a wonderful weekend xxxxxx
