I am currently working on a new Block of the Month. For something different I am using hand dyed woven wools for all of my appliqué. I am hard at work and I thought I would show you some snippets of how it is progressing. Hope you like it. Keep Stitching

It has been FOREVER since I last wrote!! Life has been manic with shows, my shop, designing and now throwing in home schooling with my son, who, by the way, is going really well at last! I thought I should kick off my return to blog land with a competition to win a fat eighth pack of my latest range 'Peace on Earth'....hope you like it. All you have to do to be in the running is post a comment below. I will draw a winner next Monday, good luck.
Hope you had a nice Christmas and a fun break. Finally my new book is done!! I picked up some boxes of books from our local printer and snaffled the first 10 books off the printing press. I have decided to keep a copy for myself, sign the rest, and give them away. I am going to run a friendly little competition over my 3 platforms, Facebook, Instagram and Typepad, to win a signed copy of my new book - 'The Story of My Day'. The rules are, post a comment to be in the draw. I will randomly pick 3 winners who have commented and they will receive a book.
I am going to choose the winners on January the 8th, so good luck!! Feel free to enter on Instagram and Facebook as well and enter as many times as you like. We have sent all the pre-orders out to shops so if you can't wait, visit your local patchwork shop and pick one up, or visit our website.
OK the pressure is on. I am now down to days not weeks to get the new book into the printers. Stress is up, Chocolate levels are increasing and it is time to unveil another little tidbit from my book. Not long now.....to the next hot chocolate. Keep Stitching Anni
Hi Everyone, I am stitching frantically in my little studio room while the rain is gently falling on our tin roof. A great day for sewing. I hoped to be a bit further advanced than I am ... Eeek, still madly trying to complete all my projects for my latest book 'The Story of my Day'. Here is a snippet of another project I am working on and of course it is all about shoes.

Hi All I am finally back in the shop and I thought I would showcase a few things that have come in. Every year I love receiving my shipment of calendars for next year. I pick these guys out in March and then have to wait 6 months before I get them. Unbearable nail chewing Christmas style frustration. Anyway here a few of some of the ones I have received. We have lots more including the fun dog and cat calendars as well as ones with sweet sayings and sunshiny images. Keep Stitching Anni
