Jane's Jottings

Off to the TV tomorrow – very early!


Stolen Moments

Stolen Moments is one of the projects to be featured on my programme tomorrow (11am Create & Craft TV) and is among my all time favourites.  Check out the CSG web site amongst the Mini-Band Samplers. The name, Stolen Moments was suggested by Bill, my husband who knew that I had to steal moments to stitch!

Bill and I are driving up to Peterborough in the early hours of tomorrow morning as I have to be in the Studio two hours before we go live. I am told that we are going to be broadcast to the USA at the same time which means quite literally millions may be watching! As always I will pretend that I am just talking to a small stitching group and cross my fingers. My plan is to show the little Hardanger detail visible halfway down the sampler – this is a technique that is surprisingly simple once the principles are grasped. If you have the time, scroll down to the post created on December 18th as I do go through this quite thoroughly.

After we finish at the Studio we are driving up to the new CSG HQ in Stockton Heath and will then spend the day packing the orders,  filling the mail bags and sticking on labels – such a glamorous life we lead! If you manage to catch the show I hope you enjoy it as much as I love doing it….

Always enjoy the shows Jane but for some reason the postage to the Isle of Man is so ridiculously high it prohibits us over here ordering! And we’re not far away either!!

Hi Jane, I came to one of your weekend xstitch retreats a few years ago at the Hilton in Warwick, had a wonderful time, although I have cross stitched for years I had never done Hardanger, and it was one of the things we learned, although still a novice at it ,I do love doing Hardhanger every now and again, I love watching you on C&C , you are so inspiring, Keep Stitching, luv ElaineX

Great show this morning on Create and Craft! You and Dean work so well together.
I emailed in to the show (whilst you were very busy with the piece of Hardanger) and of course I couldn’t resist buying two more kits. Can’t wait to get started on them – ‘Stolen Moments’ and the ‘Spring Green cradle’ kit. Love the quality, the colour-palette and the designs, as ever. You are very talented indeed.

Kindest regards,
Anita Jennings

Hi Heather,
I am sorry that you are unable to buy from C&C. You know that you can purchase things from our web site and the postage is the same as the rest of the UK!

Hi heather,
I am glad you are enjoying my programmes – I have to say that if you were a CSG member not only would you get your discounts you would have free postage
