Screen Test and More!

Linen Books Stitch That 01-02-11 2854

My Little Linen Book

This is something very special and a bit of a personal dream come true. I have not been able to persuade a publisher to help me create My Little Linen Book and had more or less given up.  You can see lots more detail about this little treasure by clicking on the link above.

I have so much to tell you this week. I will know even more tomorrow but it appears that I have landed a contract to do at least six cross stitch programmes on Create and Craft. This is a new strand to the Ideal World Shopping Channel. My screen test is tomorrow – the programmes are filmed live and this will take some concentration! I will let you know the dates and times when I have them confirmed. They will be on Freeview and Satellite so I hope you get a chance to see them.

My darling husband, Bill decided that I could not take this on and keep sane without changing my car for something larger and better equipped so that is what I have been doing this morning. I collect my VW Golf TDI Sport on Monday – my little Smart car sold overnight and I think he is going to a good home! Phew!

In the middle of all this, your mailing has left us and is winging its way to you as we speak. This is Issue 84 of Stitch That which includes the final part of our lovely part work – The Flower Book.

The Flower Book

I  am busy working away on the next issue so that we can catch up a bit of lost time. I will not be adding another part work for the time being as I know many of you need to  complete your UFOs (Unfinished Objects). I will include more pictures from Issue 84 shortly

Happy Stitching…..

Many congratulations, Jane. Good Luck with the Screen Test. Is there any way us overseas girls would be able to watch the shows?

It’s great to hear that Ideal World are actually doing something other than papercraft.

I’m so pleased for you to have become the latest television star. How about a DVD for non-UK members?
