I've been neglecting my blogging. Sorry blog!
Lots is happening here. I have dreamed for 10 years of having one of my patterns included in the Fine Art & Decorative Painting magazine ... and in 2010 that dream is coming true! I submitted one of my princess pointy shoes patterns (above), and it was immediately commissioned for publication! Not sure which issue yet, but I'll keep you posted.
I am still designing for Brandcorp, in several departments including Semco, Milford and Francheville.
Watch for a new crochet book (suitable for beginners) from Milford Threads. My Mum has helped me with lots of the projects, and we're just putting the finishing touches on the text now.
Also watch for the new Francheville scrapbooking papers & embellishments in Spotlight. Yours truely has designed a gorgeous mothers day project, and there will be a project sheet.
There are also some gorgous little Easy Peasy wooden transport blank toys at Spotlight ... watch for the project sheet I made for those as well. They're really fun to paint.
Lastly, the sewing machine has been getting a workout. I'm designing sewing patterns for Australian Girl Dolls, exclusive, and especially to fit these beautiful dolls. The new limited edition doll, Matilda, also has a cute little froggy in her pocket ... I designed that too. The competition to name him recently closed, and I'm thrilled with the name of Prince that was declared winner.
2010 is going to be an interesting year! You can find me at the Quilt & Craft show at Darling Harbour in June, as well as the St Ives Heritage Markets in November and December with the FDAA.
