I love creating different things and am never without something to do, be it cross stitching, sewing or knitting.

Skills and Techniques

I am lucky to have a professional cross stitch software application, which allows me to create patterns from pictures or photographs.

Get to Know

I am now living in a small village in southern France after giving up being a teacher and leaving England.

I have been cross stitching for the past forty years and as a result I started to create my own patterns. That was the beginning of my shop on Artfire.

I started selling at the local craft fairs in my area, when a friend of my daughter suggested I try selling on the internet.

So I did. I love being able to sell to people all over the world.

As a result I have come into contact with many people from all over the world, usually as customers. I have enjoyed helping people who have asked for maybe a different stitch counted on the pattern, or creating a cross stitch pattern from one of their favorite photographs. These are unique to them, I do not sell those patterns in my shop as they are a purely customised pattern.
