June 2011

I am just test stitching the final design in my animal alphabet! It has been a labour of love deciding on which animals to use and then making child friendly embroidery pictures of them. I mostly use Janome software, which I really like. I think the designs would look great on a patchwork quilt. Uploading them all will take a while but they should be in the shop soon.

We had a fantastic evening out on Friday at Newmarket races, followed by a Texas concert there. Charlene Spiteri has a great voice singing live and despite pouring with rain I really enjoyed it.

It has been thundering here this morning. I managed to dash out and mow the lawn moments before the downpour came!! It is a little cooler now so hopefully will be able to sleep tonight.


I haven’t posted for a while as I have been very busy on a large project. I have been designing an animal alphabet made up of individual designs from A to Z. So far I have got to the letter U in designs and have test stitched A to M.

I hope to get them all finished by the end of next week. They will then be available on the website as a collection, which would be ideal for a patchwork quilt or a fabric alphabet book. The designs will also be sold individually.

We are finally getting lots of rain on the North Essex coast. Our garden is looking much happier and I don’t have to spend hours watering it!

I went 10 pin bowling for the first time ever this morning. I was really bad at it! But it was great fun and I will go again soon as I enjoyed it a lot. I can only improve as I came last in every game!!

Meanwhile here’s a photo of one of our beautiful sunsets.

It was a gorgeous morning here today and I took this photo on my early morning walk which I rather like, thankfully without an attendant spider which I would not have liked!
