Our new free designs for September are now available on the website http://www.embroiderycrazy.co.uk/shop/ . This month we have a golden autumn leaf and a classic Christmas pudding for anyone starting to make those seasonal gifts! We have several more Christmas designs going online very soon as sewers get busy now creating for friends and family. We now have colour files attatched to every design on the site. These will be sent as a pdf along with your download.

It’s a beautiful sunny, warm day on the Essex coast today. As it is not likely to stay warm for long I shall make the most of it and go on the beach later. The holiday makers will be disappearing early next week as the children go back to school. Then we go back to being a sleepy backwater!

We have had a lovely week with the grandchildren here doing all the classic beach¬† holiday stuff. The weather was mostly kind to us. I took loads of photographs of course! I love this one of my grandson ‘posing’ in a fairground ride bus. I know I’m biased, but he is so cute!!! He’s going to be a heartbreaker when he’s older.

We went to our local airshow which is held on the beach at Clacton. I love the wing walkers and took this photo of one going upside down while standing on the plane. Personally I wouldn’t do it for a million dollars!

I have been stitching out the new Christmas designs today. So far I have a Christmas pudding, bells, holly and a cute snowman. They should be available in the website shop by the end of this week. I have also been ordering new supplies as I was running low on everything. Now I have to wait for all the parcels to arrive. Don’t you just love the anticipation of waiting for parcels?!
