Currently working on another Cincinnati-based piece, which if you’re at all familiar with the city, you’ll know instantly what it is. And if you’re not, then stay tuned for the finish!

A recent completed piece – Cincinnati Music Hall. I designed and stitched this in summer, 2018.

This image, taken from Wikipedia, is one of the reference points I used. I’m fairly pleased with how it turned out.

I recently stitched this up for a Christmas gift for my pal, Jo. It took twice as long as you’d think because when I was about 3/4 of the way through, I realised I’d gone wrong in the border and had to unpick the whole fucking thing and start again. Still, it turned out well and she loved it.

If you’d like to make one, you’ll find the pattern for this and lots of other cool stuff, here.

Upon doing some end of year admin, I realised I’d neglected my blog for some months. I’ve been very busy. It’s nice to have a look back and see what I’ve been up to.

Back in September, I finally gifted this cushion that I’d spent months stitching up on and off for my very good friend, Lindsay. She loved it, I’m pleased to say.
