My new book...

My new book is arriving in stores and some lovely ladies have been emailing me to say theres has arrived and that they love it....thank you x. It feels like forever ago that I was busy stitching the samples and writing the instructions and finally today the samples from my 'Country Cottage Quilting' are back from the publishers... it is great being able to hold and touch them again. I wanted to show you a close up of the inside of the needledcase (see the stitched wheelbarrow)... 

Inside needlecase ccq

Originally it was a sweet bit of stitchery (see picture below) but I had forgotten that I am not allowed to put words on my work as it makes it hard for translation so I had to replace the words with the sweet wheelbarrow. Here is the original stitched piece with some very sweet words...if you would like to use this on your needlecase instead of the wheelbarrow stitchery you can download the design below.

The next project I want to give you a closer peek at is this great sewing case, the case is ready made all you have to do is make the cover for the front and back and stitch it on..simple... 

Craft case and needlebook

Inside the case there are lots of compartments, perfect to hold your scissors, rotary cutter, threads, matching needlecase and of course a small piece of stitching in progress! I will have the sewing cases in my online store in the next couple of weeks so keep watching this space.

There are shops around the globe with my book in store and some of the lovely shops have let me know that they have got or are going to stock my new book and orders are welcome.
