It's always nice to see a bit of product - almost a year ago I sold this baby train design to a textile agent in the US.....
....and now it has been found selling online at modeS4u (thanks Lucy!); lovely to see (and rather impressed at how the repeat has been created from my panel design!) You can view and buy here and here where it can be found in two colourways.
Here are some snapshots of the finished product...

And as usual I've been working on lots of new things for the festive season ahead of another US selling trip. Here are a couple of snippets from a character set I've been busy on....
Santa's got his skis on and has rocked up at the Antarctic!
And this family of snowmen are having a fun-filled sledging trip!
I really enjoyed creating these guys....let's hope they find a nice new home ;)

Whilst I've been absent from my blogging life, I've still managed to fit a few bits of work in here and there between the nappy changes etc ;).....one very exciting commission I received earlier this year was from Papercrafter magazine - I've never done any work for a magazine before, so I was thrilled to hear from them, and the fact that it would be out for everyone to see here in the UK made it even more satisfying! Each month the magazine features a 'Designer Papers' collection, and this month I made my debut....I'm really pleased with how they've turned out, and even more pleased that a little Christmas crafting project using my designs is actually featured on the front page. Here are a few snippets for you to see...I thoroughly enjoyed working on it; here's hoping it'll be the first of many :D
- The 'Designer Papers' Studio Selection....featuring my paisley design on the front cover
- pictures from the magazine featuring a Christmas tree tabletop project, and a Christmas tree card created using my papers.
- and the lovely moment I saw my name in print :D

Hellooo, how are you all today? Thought I'd fill you in on how everything went at the weekend....
It was busy, busy, busy here in the run up to Sunday; sorting out business cards, labelling things up, framing prints, etc, etc, and up until Saturday I hadn't even seen all the lovely makes by our very talented Ree-Stitch seamstress Elizabeth, only a few snapshots, so waited patiently with anticipation for their arrival....well, I was not disappointed (even if I do say so myself!!) - they were better than I could have ever imagined - hurrah for Elizabeth - you're an absolute star!!! Here's a few pictures of our stall for you to see....it was a beautiful sunshiny day!
We had lots of interest, and lots of lovely feedback, and many people came and took our business cards etc....hoping it will bring some further enquiries in soon as we had a few people asking us about customised designs based on the letters trio.....all very exciting!!
I was busily snapping away at the stock yesterday, so have a little look on my facebook page (click the Ree-Stitch link over on the right hand side of this page) to view all of our lovely products...hope to see you over there peeps! ;)
