April 2012

If you live in the U.K. then this really is the year to celebrate with Union Jack designs, what with the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and of course the Olympics happening here. We have two Union Jack machine embroidery designs now available for sale to download from our website. One is this heart shaped design  Image

and the other is a rectangular flag shape.

Adding to our insect collection we also have a pretty lacy butterfly. It looks lovely done with metallic thread for the gold parts. We have also updated our website with a search facility which will make finding what you want much easier.

Our weekend when the kite surfers came to North Essex was disappointingly cold, so the photos I hoped to get were few as it was so cold we couldn’t stay long on the beach at Clacton. I did get some, but as the day was very grey, and the pro surfers didn’t go out as conditions were not good enough for them, they are not great. But anyway these are some of the photos I did take.

You can see from them what a cold, grey day it was. Such a shame!


April has arrived and Embroidery Crazy has been online for a year now. The time has gone so quickly. Our April free machine embroidery designs are now ready to download so if you have an embroidery machine head over to our website. http://www.embroiderycrazy.co.uk/shop/specials/

There is an Easter design perfect for card making and this very sweet little elephant which would be great for any makes for spring new arrivals.

To celebrate our first birthday, registered users of the website have a 20 percent discount this month, so if you have not already registered now is the time to do so and we will send you the special code needed to get the discount.

It has been wonderfully warm for a couple of weeks on the East Anglian coast, amazing for March in the UK. We have had people on our beach, normally empty at this time of year! The photo was taken last weekend. However April arrived and the temperatures have gone back down to normal – it’s currently 10 degrees here at midday. But the sun is out so it’s not unpleasant for our school Easter holidays. We have the National Kite Surfing championships taking place in nearby Clacton-On-Sea next weekend so I hope to take some great photographs! I shall post any decent ones. Meanwhile have a very Happy Easter whatever you are up to.
