Our daughter has just had a baby – our third grandchild – but it feels as wonderful as the first one did! We have been for a visit and a cuddle. I now have to try and concentrate on working on my website. Hmmmm!

I can’t believe another month has almost vanished. I am busy on some autumn machine embroidery designs this week, plus a random but cute Japanese doll!! These will be appearing on the website shortly, along with new free designs for October.

I went for a walk on the beach on Sunday and suddenly this appeared overhead.

I would never go up in one of those things but I have been up in a hot air balloon and it was fantastic! I would recommend it to anyone, and I’m scared of heights!!!

Coming up this month in our store we have some exciting new designs. Focusing on baby items we have several teddy bears and a sweet little duckling that looks really cute on baby clothes. There are some apple trees which would look good on kitchen or home items. We have a spider for arachnologists and a crazy Cheshire cat. Is there a design you’d like to see? Let us know!
