Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

I am chuffed!!!!!

Having been taken on as a sample maker for My Craft Studio, I was so pleased (serious understatement) this week to see 6 of my 8 submitted samples shown on the shows this week.  Three of them were even singled out for special mention.  That was really good for me as it was a parchment program, and I have only just started to play with parchment.  I think mine were shown as examples of what a beginner could do, and what you can do with the images without using parchment at all.  Working on this program and watching the experts demonstrating, especially Sandra who is a true parcher, has given me the courage to have a go and extend myself playing with designs, both from the CD and using my old embroidery designs.
