New build, new job and new challenges, mean that I’ve had little time to stitch, blog and update websites lately. Life is changing, and taking it at a slower, more measured pace will return, I know, but just not yet.

In the middle of winter, a lovely customer gave me a box filled with the most beautiful linens, lace and garments. Most belonged to her Mother, Sydney who came to New Zealand to settle many years ago. I wanted to make a couple of items to gift back to her by way of a heart felt thank you.
