My new designs for Christmas

 As most of my friends and followers know... I LOVE stitchery, alot of my designs have stitchery in them somewhere, it may be the  main feature or I'll pop a few in here and there just to make it a little more special.
 This project is my newest design for christmas and its just been featured in the latest Patchwork and stitching magazine. A sweet little christmas elf pillow. I really like the rectangle cushions just for a change, You can have them on a bed or a chair.
 To make it even more exciting for me, my design is on the front cover. Now thats a very big honour and one I'm so proud of.

 The photography always looks amazing.  Its always a happy day at my house when I find a magazine in my mail box. Do you like it? I sure hope so.
 Also this is finally happening, My very own patterns now for people to buy.  ( I hope ) I'm slowly working my way to get more ready so I'll post on here when they are done.
I've been working on how to sell my patterns and my best idea so far is to make a page here on my blog, list all my patterns and go from there.  I can do PDF patterns which I can email and paper patterns.
Stay tuned for more news on that as it happens.

Its a glorious Spring day in Tassie so I should go outside and enjoy some sunshine.

Have a wonderful day.

I've just bought this mag and saw your cute elf project in it as one I need to make up for myself. When you work out how your selling your patterns let me know as I'd love to buy the stitchery candle mat pattern as a paper pattern in the future :) Barb.

Leanne I saw that mag cover in the newsagent, & told them "I know that designer!"
So pleased for you to be a Cover Girl, it's a cute project.
I think you're on the right rack with offering both paper & pdf; pdf will give o-seas buyers the quick access instead of waiting for post.
Woo Hoo for you! x
