(James Greenoff 27th December)

We wish you a healthy and happy New Year from all of us at the

Studio at Pinks Barn

I hope you have begun to recover from the Christmas excitement and things are calming down a little. We had a marvellous four day celebration with up to ten people around the table at any one time and  Louise’s friends adding to the sparkle.

Dog books tell you that Bearded Collies are expert at cute and this is no lie. Both dogs had a very festive time with lots of meaty treats and were spoiled rotten. Biggles fell in love and it took two hours to find him again….. I have added some more pictures to Bumbles page

Today, I have spent some real quality time and turned out the Studio and found all sorts of treasures. I feels as if my Ideas box has just exploded inside my head and I am having to be very disciplined to keep tidying and not to sit down and start designing.

I have promised myself that if the office is completely tidy at bedtime this evening, I can draw and stitch thro’ the rest of the holiday period.

Stitch That Issue 83 is out and about  and CSG Members should have received their copy by now. Not a Member? Go to Join us

The Book

The Flower Sampler Book

Over the past few months, our Members have been working a Sampler Book as shown in the picture above. We have been adding two pages in each Issue of our magazine and the final touches will be included in Issue 84 out shortly.

Pages

Issue 83 included Pattern Darning and Blackwork with hemstitch and pulled thread embroidery to follow. We will also show how to complete the book in Issue 84.

Happy stitching until we speak again!
