With all the best intentions in the world, it seems that I can either keep up with my social media commitments or I can write my blog. I just don’t have the time (or perhaps the organisational skills!) to do both. And it is really important for me to make sure that I have time to keep stitching and designing – after all that is what Beautiful Stitches is all about. I have had an amazing 12 months. I have more and more lovely students in Perth. This year I also had my first interstate teaching trip to Melbourne and Geelong in July – it was so much fun!!! Beautiful Stitches continues to be something I am incredibly grateful to share with you all If you would like regular updates on what I am doing, be sure to follow me on either Facebook or Instagram.
So to celebrate my birthday as well as to say a huge thankyou to you all for your wonderful support, my gift to you this year is Autumn Fireworks. Click here to download the PDF pattern. This pattern grew out of a thread I dyed myself in a workshop with Jacinta Leishman from Spiral Dyed Threads. I hope you enjoy it and perhaps learn some new stitches. It’s a sampler style project – ideal for you to pick and choose which section you want to try. Or just dive in and do the whole thing!
