thank you Barb :) that's lovely of you to say. I'm so glad that you like seeing my progress Kate x
thank you :) I agree, better to get it right now than have to change things further down the line. Kate x
Thank you Beth. I definitely agree and I always love the process of drawing and stitching I will have to learn to love my computer more. Kate x

Getting January presents done now is a great idea! I think January is the one time of year that we don't have any birthdays so it's a nice quiet month for me. I do like the idea of choosing one or two designs and stitching them for different people. x

This year I thought I was organized! I thought I would have the hallowe'en panels ready in plenty of time for any hallowe'en stitching and the little caravan, putting up the tree and new lavender girl kits all ready with no mad late nights working and rushing. But then fate... Continue reading

I am a staunch no Christmas until the 1st of December by nature but in my business I really have to get my head around Christmas so very much earlier! I have spent August thinking and planning for it and now I am sorting out kits and printed fabric panels.... Continue reading

This week my trusty little Ricoh camera finally gave up the ghost and I had to learn how to use a grown up camera! The truth is it was never my camera in the first place. Everyone in our house loves photography apart from me. It's my guilty secret, I... Continue reading

Hi and thank you for your lovely comment. I'm sorry that you are in pain, I imagine it's hard to get comfortable. The flower globe is a free pattern that is available on the free stuff page of my blog http://www.lilipopo.co.uk/free-stuff.html I think the girl that you saw might just have been a one off and not a pattern unfortunately. The flower gardener and in the garden both have flowers and girls on them but I don't yet have a circular pattern with girls and flowers. Hope this helps Kate x

I have been working on a new caravan pattern, one that fits into a hoop to be framed but could still work as a cushion centre or in a square picture frame. Last weekend I would have loved to have had this little caravan as we danced in the mud... Continue reading

One of the questions I get asked the most about embroidery is 'how many strands?'. I use stranded embroidery thread for all my patterns, mainly DMC but sometimes a little bit of Anchor. The only reason I try to focus on DMC threads is that they are more widely available... Continue reading

I have been working on this meditation design over the last month and doing very little other work except what was necessary. The reason for this is a shoulder that won't work properly, it's been months! But this week I think the cause of the problem has been found and... Continue reading

Last week I finally managed to stock up on all of the printed fabric panels! These panels are printed in light grey onto a white 195gsm (medium) weight cotton. And at the moment I am stitching a flower gardener panel in soft peaches and pinks. The panels that are available... Continue reading

The clutter I normally work in! But the past few weeks have been much tidier. Tax time of year is not nearly as pretty as stitching and sketching time. Unfortunately my work has been a lot slower this month due to a pesky shoulder bursitis that just does not want... Continue reading
