new format cards

I've been selling this small range of square 'Domestic Bliss' cards for the last year and although they are totally lovely I really felt that they perhaps lacked something. 

Perhaps they were just too small and being overlooked? 

My most recent Cornish Cottage cards are all printed at a slightly larger size, 15 x 15cm (6" x 6") and look great, you can see the stitched details beautifully as well as having more space inside for your thoughts and wishes. 

With this new range of square cards printed at a larger size I felt that this little lot could have a Gok Wan style make over and would benefit from a new look. So here they are, all shiny and new!

I'd love to hear what you think about their new look. Why not have a look up close at

pictures from the studio 2

Still in my gently-does-it frame of mind, I thought I would share with you some of the pictures the brilliant photographer Stewart Girvan  took last Friday afternoon of the studio and it's contents. 
I was in need of some new studio photographs and profile pictures, so I called in Stewart to solve the problem. Here is only a taster of what he shot, but I'm absolutely delighted with the results and can't wait to share more in the coming weeks. 

I love this close up shot of some sewing in action, the attention detail and focus on the stitching is great. 

This picture has become my new profile on facebook. I like the fact that i'm busy concentrating on my work and not trying to smile at the camera!

I love the angle at which this shot is taken, the edge of the table almost looks like a water line and my sewing machine looks like it's just floating on the surface. It reminds me of the analogy of a duck, calm and still on the surface but paddling like mad underneath!  

Happy stitching

pictures from the studio

It's been a while since I've shared anything so I thought I would ease myself gently back into the swing of things with a few photos of the studio from the month so far. All have a nice bright and colourful feel to them, roll on Spring!
