Looking back at March, I made loads of tiny maps… Your map might not look 100% like you remember in geography class… I’m more of an a creative than cartographer. Artistic licence is used with every design and each is meant to lovingly represent rather than realistically detail destinations. The map designs are very small (40mm!),…
Apart from giving away free machine embroidery designs each Friday, I also created more designs. In February I started the ilove range and my first ilove key fob, still stays my favourite, the ilove Africa key fob. Creating these designs, take so much time. Prepping the material in advance, and the hours of photos, editing…

I really enjoyed creating these ‘In the hoop’ machine embroidery coasters. Making these animals was so much fun.
It has been some time since I’ve posted.. then again so much has happend since then! One thing I am seriously getting into lately is digitising. I’ve always wanted to do it, and I had some software to digitise but since I’ve upgraded my software to Hatch it is as if a whole new world…
