The good news? Cotton Floss is in the house and shipped to stores around the globe.
I am hearing people love it and can't work out which design to stitch first....LOVE it! When my copies arrived last week I sat there for a few moments just looking at the envelope - then I reached for the camera.
When eighteen months of work all comes down to one express parcel, you need to take a photo.
So in one surreal, excited and quiet frankly incredibly scary moment,
I ripped open the bag & there they were.
My paper baby was born.
Cotton Floss has now been shipped to stores (who have placed orders) and I am just beginning to get feedback from those who have their copies and don't want to let them go.
I can see a field of Toadstool pin rests beginning to grow around the world.
Not to mention owls dotted here and there.
With Cotton Floss arriving in stores it's time I shared with you all twelve projects fetaured in the book, there are still a few more designs I have not managed to show you yet.
Row 1 (L to R) The Hidden Garden canvas art / Little Red Cap needle holder / Little Red Cap thread holder / Little Red Cap zip pouch Row 2 (L to R) Market Folk carry bag / Toadstool pin rest / Market Folk journal cover / Owlish Dreams bag (library bag, toy sack or pj bag) Row 3 (L to R) Stella and Henry owl softies / The Big bag / The Family Tree wall hanging / Market Folk mini quilt.
Got to love the little elfin girls that pop up here and there.
