December 2015

a project in kindred stitches


It was an exciting month for me last month, as the lovely ladies from the online magazine 'Kindred Stitches' asked me if I would like to contribute a small project to their December issue.  The theme is 'happiness is...'  Here in the Uk it is very wintery so I had very little trouble thinking about what happiness is!  curled up on the sofa in the warm with a hot chocolate and a good book.  

And so a book mark seemed the perfect project.


The colour theme was blue and yellow and, because it is much more summery in Australia (where Kindred Stitches is based) I designed a pattern more in keeping with summery reading.

It was such fun working to a theme, not something I have done before, but I enjoyed having the boundaries for the design and found some new colours too!
