the boy did good

After all the preparation, Christmas has been and gone, but the boy did good with lots of surprises including this b.eau.ti.ful ring…

As always, it was over far too fast and now it’s back to work for us tomorrow.

PINKBIGFLOWERS

So back to the designing…

Here is another recent final design I have created, using a motif developed with sketching, stitching, sequins, lace, collage & paint, before been digitally manipulated into a repeat design.

BLUEBIGFLOWERS

I’m thinking this design would look great on upholstery!

Mission Tree

Okay, so we blitzed the shopping last night….in and out of town in a couple of hours…most of which was in one department store where we may have ‘accidentally’ got a little carried away and overspent by quite a few £££. But, the kids are only little once and who are we to ruin the ‘magic of christmas’ for them?! And, you know what, Leon is such a sucker for a toy…I swear half of the ones we brought were actually for him!

Today I am living on a promise and I must must must must must must must do the tree with the kiddies before bed, I am working all weekend (yup, even Sunday…must.be.mad!!) and we have a christmas doo tomorrow evening (yippee!!! Love a good ole knees-up) so it HAS to be done today. So enough waffle from me, I’m on  a mission….. tree, tree, tree.

P.S : By the way, just incase you were wondering those designs ^^^^^^^^…NOTHING absolutely what-so-ever to do with trees or christmas or my mission…but they are a variant of a recent final design I created, so I thought I’d share with my favs! EnjoY!


One week to go!

So, its all here far too quickly once again and next week this time it shall almost all be over! And so far we are wayyyy behind schedule. No christmas tree, very little pressies and absolutely no food! To make it worse, Leon and I are both working right up to Christmas Eve…ekkk! Panic not though, it will all come together….after all, for the last ten years we have been the pro’s of pulling together a ‘Last minute Xmas’ (and we have even been known to have taken our tree down on boxing day! Our house is just far too small for a tree and two small children!) Whilst I am off to make a start on the last minute preparations, I will leave you with one of my recent final designs.

This design is a variant from my ‘Urban Line’ collection.
