I am so thrilled to finally release this new pattern. It has been such a long time in the making.
Over the past few years I have played around with a lot of different styles and projects while working on my books and commissions for other people - I am truly grateful to have had that opportunity and have loved collaborating, but it has also meant that I lost my way a bit in terms of what I really wanted to make. So with this pattern I stripped everything away and went back to basics. The result is something that is unequivocally my style; designing it has felt like coming home.
It has all of the things I love: history, simplicity, nature, texture, a little magic, calm and quiet. My boyfriend laughed when I first showed it to him because he said it looked so much like me.
The pattern is designed to be stitched in its entirety and displayed in an A4 size picture frame or stretched over an artist's box canvas. However, you can also pick out individual elements of the design and display them in their own little hoops and frames, or add them to greetings cards. The simplicity of the design also means you can play around with colours to make something that is uniquely yours: opt to stitch the pattern in a single shade like I have, or use a mixed palette of your favourites to give the sampler an entirely different look.
You can find the pattern in my shop now. I hope you love it too (and that it is worth the very long wait I have put you through...).
There will be kits of this pattern too, but we are off to Wales for a holiday later this week so they won't be ready until later in November. I will keep you posted.
