Craft lovers Charity page

Noah's ark and animals - ITHWL

I’ve been working with a lovely Lady Coral VanDyk who does a lot of charity work, she stitches out and sells busy bags and finger puppets in order to raise enough money to buy fleece to make blankies and teddies for foster kids in her small home town.

She was telling me that she makes 2 teddies and blankies every day, that’s an awful lot of fleece.

Coral has been doing a lot of testing and taking photos of my new designs, and if you don’t have an embroidery machine, or you want some of my designs stitched out, contact Coral on her facebook page,

Coming soon, New Kitchen pages

Kitchen 8x8 quiet book pages - ITHWL

Well I have finished stitching page 1 of the Kitchen page and am very pleased with it.

I still have to stitch the felties that are used to match shapes and to be used on the kitchen bench as quiet play.

This page is an 8×8 page, however, most components can be stitched in a 4×4 hoop, along with SVG files that can be used with cutting machines or trace the outlines cut and stitch them with a standard sewing machine.

Laundry room 8x8 quiet book pages - ITHWL

My latest project before the kids come for Christmas.
I am working on a series of quiet book pages, and these ones are – in the home, and here are the first 2 pages – The laundry room.The door to the washing machine and dryer open, so washing can be put inside, the trough cabinet doors open, the washing basket is 3D so washing can be put in that as well, the water from the tap has texture the window can be changed from night to day.I am working on a folding ironing board and another iron to use on the ironing board, there will be a vacuum to plug into the wall using kam snaps, and some washing to hang on the line on the next couple of pages.As with all R&D projects, things change as I am working on it, the clock now has a face to tell time, a couple of other little items can be stitched to fill in some gaps.
