Christmas gift buying from Indie makers

a little while ago Yvonne Coomber Art kindly contacted me, inviting me to be part of her Gift Guide for flower lovers.

Pop over to her blog for more details about Yvonne and her art.   A list too, of flowery inspired makers and small businesses .....  here , if you fancy.

Below are the needle cases that have been showcased.

My first Hoop Embroidery Kit - Bunny, Flowers and teeny Bees.

I hope all is well with you and yours.

I am absolutely thrilled to bits to now offer this Hoop Embroidery Kit.
All included in the kit, except for scissors, to embroider this little Bunny, sitting in the flowers... surrounded by teeny Bees.
The design is screen printed on to lovely vintage cotton in a pale grey.
The first of many more, I hope.

 Available over in my Etsy shop.

a year or so ago, I was invited to contribute a few images and a Q & A for the book, pictured above.
I didn't really give this much thought at the time, but when the book was published and I received a copy, I was beyond thrilled. 
A French publication, but sincerely hoping the book will be published in English soon.  
The book takes a look at contemporary embroidery.
Absolutely packed with a fabulous collection of contemporary textiles artists' work, unusual and alternative.   To be part of this wonderful book is a huge honour.

 Available here and AmazonUK.   I looked at Amazon USA but not available at the moment.  I'm sure it will be widely available though, if published in English.

thank you so much for the wonderful welcome back to blogging.  Thank you each and everyone for your kind comments, all very much appreciated.

So, here is the result of many hours of stitching over the last few days....French style Berets.   One of our daughters suggested embellishing Berets, which I thought was such a good idea.
Each has a hand embroidered spray of flowers and teeny Bees.  Available over in my Etsy shop.

Well, that's all for today, 

Thanks so much for stopping by. X
