The high-light of my day was when my parcel arrived from Orange you Lucky, I won the give away for her cards-they're fab and will post piccie's tomorrow.
Still feeling frustrated at not having enough time to be able to be creative, feels like my design work is suffering.......also it could be the time of year where there's lots going on in my head but just a lack of time to get it into production, could do with a spare pair of hands-any volunteers??
I'm interested having read other blogs that people seem to be doing swaps, if anyone reads my ramblings and knows anything about/involved in this drop me a line, i'd be really interested.

These are the colours that I have been working with today-fresh and funky. The outcome was surprisingly pleasing to the eye, can't wait to get stitching the design.
Also had slight mis-hap with youngest son losing his "taggy", comfort blanket that he's had since birth. Good old Mum came to the rescue and stitched a new one made from Nemo fleece which went down a storm!!

It was definitely in my gene pool that I was destined to stitch, as a little girl I was never more at home then when my Nanny's would get their sewing boxes out and allow me to rummage through them. The button boxes where my idea of Heaven and I've got some that were my Great-Nanny's, so probably over 100yrs old now!!!
I've always enjoyed making things, from little peg dolls to cushions, so off I went to Uni to study Surface decoration-hey presto i found like minded people that enjoyed designing things, I found printmaking theraputic but haven't done anything like that for years(watch this space as this is one of those things that I plan to do again by the time I'm 30) After graduating I became a free-lance designer and found myself an agent that has been selling my designs, for fabric, gift wrap, and many more surfaces that have design on them, for the last 8 years.
In between I have managed get married and have 2 little boys, who think Mummy is quite funny when she indulges in their glue and stick activites. I juggle all this like most women do, with some finesse and alot of laughs with a good set of friends and family.
I find looking at design blogs relaxing and always inspiring so thought I'd have a go and let you into the mad world that inspires me...................
