First of all I’d like to thank everyone who entered our Rosie’s Houseplants Kit giveaway last week. The winner has now been chosen by random selection (congratulations Tamara!) and I only wish I had a kit for everyone who entered.
Rosie and I have been having a little chat about kits, and after some serious discussion have decided not to offer softie kits on an ongoing basis (though there will always be special limited editions from time to time). This will give us more time to concentrate on our embroidery kits, and we’re planning to offer some new spring designs next month. Meanwhile, we need to clear our existing stock of softie kits to make way for these new designs and so we’ve decided to reduce our two remaining kits over in our Etsy store. These are Humphrey and Flora….
We only have limited stocks remaining, so if you’d like one then please just CLICK HERE to pop over to our Etsy shop – when they’re gone, that’s it – they’re gone!
Sewing is a great way to keep warm indoors on these cold January days of course – though the frost can produce some beautiful effects. I was amazed to see the geometric pattern that formed overnight on my conservatory roof after we’d had some heavy rain that presumably froze as it ran down the glass…
It’s so regular – and so fleeting too, it was gone within an hour or two as the sun rose and melted the ice. It’s far too cold to sit out there and stitch though, so I’ve been snuggled up on the sofa in the living room working on designs for the February magazine. I’m particularly taken with my mini cactus plants – a good friend gave me a bag of vintage cotton reels and I have been trying to decide what to do with them for some time now….
I was thinking of offering one or more of these designs as a limited edition kit, including a vintage cotton reel and if anyone is interested at all it would be good if you could let me know (no obligation, just trying to find out if there would be any demand – thank you x).
