Love my Chemistry!

Having an Etsy shop is allowing me to add charts that I would never dreamed of having on my website along with my very prim & proper name samplers!  I have this past few weeks been adding some Chemical Element charts that spell out words and with 5 uploaded already, I am looking forward to creating more.


Not only do I get to figure out more words as I go, but I am also revisiting my happy days at school and university studying geology (yes, a bit sad I know, but I am most definitely a nerd and very proud of it!).

So, if you fancy stitching any of these, pop over to my Etsy Shop’s Chemical Element section and have a browse – and if you think of any wonderful words that I could add that would be great too…

Until next time, happy stitching folks!

Name Sampler Competition Time

I love a good competition & this one is very popular with my customers and newsletter subscribers.  All you have to do is come up with a new design theme for my personalised Name Sampler range.  Here are the two previous winners:

WinnersBoth of these designs are now really popular with my customers & yours could be next…

All you have to do is tell me your idea in this quick survey and I will decide on a winner from all the entries received by midnight on Friday, 11th April 2014.  But while you are thinking about your amazing design remember:

  • it needs to be adaptable (for lots of different names)
  • it should differ from those already on my website
  • to give as much detail as you can – I struggle with one word entries!

If your idea fits all of these conditions then go ahead and enter.  The winner receives a full cross stitch kit personalized with the name of their choice before anyone else gets one – it’s worth £29.99 and I throw in free postage as well (wherever you are in the world!).

So, get thinking & good luck.

How to cross stitch a QR code

Being somewhat of a geek, I have been so excited recently to start transforming QR Codes into cross stitch patterns.  The process is quite an easy one, but takes an eye for detail and a love of all things geometric!  So I’ve decided to share how it’s done and hope that you too can have a go at creating some eye-catching nerdy cross stitch…  Continue reading
