March 2021

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!),…

February 2021

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…

Redwork challenge

I have set myself a digitising challenge. I’ve downloaded a 30 Day Challenge Prompts journal for sketching, challenge yourself to create every day. And rather than sketching, I decided I will digitise. So here we go! Want to see how these designs stitch out?

Zoo Cookies

We’ve been chatting about childhood memories and what we miss from our childhood.  That made me think of ‘zoo cookies’, something I ate as a child. The thought of ‘zoo cookies’ brought back such happy memories.  I just had to recreate these as embroidery felties. I call them ‘safari biscuits’. 

Big 5

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…

Farm Yard

I had so much creating these little farm yard friends. These are my first stuffies digitised from scratch. I must say, I love them and think it came out beautifully.


There is a first time for everything, and that includes making shoes!

Ice packs

The other day I decide to make some ice pack, especially now that all the peas in the freezer are being eaten 😉

Another little bunny

It is so much fun to make these sweet little bunnies, and it is the perfect gift.
