little reader bookmark


At the beginning of the year the lovely Kindred Stitches asked me to design a pattern for them which was featured in their beautiful stitchy digital magazine.


If you missed the magazine you can now purchase the pattern in my shop

The pattern includes instructions for making up the very simple bookmark but I  think she might look lovely on a journal cover too.

And I do have another project coming up in Kindred Stitches soon...

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!
