book sigining 2

I’ve just been at the publishers busy signing copies of my books. We had a nice little production line set up and all was going well until I tried to make conversation and sign at the same time then I ended up writing not my name but whatever it was that I was chatting about. Fool.

Anyway I’ve got two of my books (signed correctly and all the words spelt right) to give away to two lucky people. To be in with a chance of winning follow my blog and post a comment below telling me of either your greatest crafting triumph or failure or just say hello! I’ll pick two winners on the 12th of July. Good Luck

Ta-dah …


This is what I have been working on all summer. The first two books in Quadrille Publishings new Simple Makes craft series. They’re both full of lovely little projects …


Felt Sew Good has 30 projects made from my most favourite of materials; felt. From cushion covers and ipad cases to dancing elephant mobiles and forest friends finger puppets I have tried to showcase the wonderful versatility of felt. Lots of projects for beginners and seasoned crafters alike.

Little Sew and Sew has loads of embroidery designs from simple one colour patterns to much more elaborate embroidery and they’ve all got their own sewing project to go with them. You can try your hand at ribbon embroidery on a beautiful wooden handled tote bag, make a birdcage tea cosy complete with multi-coloured love birds or make personalised pillowcases, dolly bags and wall hangings.

Thing is they’re not available till next May so they might not make this years Christmas list.. but you could pre-order if you like?
