Christmas is Coming…

I know – it’s not even October yet and I have already mentioned the ‘C’ word… But hey, I love the festive season and in the cold UK Winter there is nothing better to do on a school night than cross stitch!

So, I’m having a little pre-pre-Christmas sale and offering a 20% discount on my three lovely Christmas-themed cross stitch charts:

You can choose from Candy Canes, Snowman or Stockings and get a personalised chart emailed to you for just £16 (usually £20) when you order before 31st October 2016 – that’s a 20% saving and the first discount I’ve offered in ages.

Simply head over to the Christmas section of my website to see them all and get your discount.

Happy Xmas Stitching everyone!!

New Additions to the Periodic Table

Back in June 2016 the  International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) announced the proposal of four new chemical elements on the periodic table:

  • Nihonium and symbol Nh, for the element 113,
  • Moscovium and symbol Mc, for the element 115,
  • Tennessine and symbol Ts, for the element 117, and
  • Oganesson and symbol Og, for the element 118.

These are currently under consultation with ratification due in November 2016.

So, it was also time for me to update my popular Periodic Table of Elements chart on Etsy.

As you can see below, the chart is now fully up to date with the new symbols and the 2016 version is now available in my Etsy Shop.


Many customers buy the chart and use it to make up their own words for smaller projects instead of stitching the entire thing – a whopping 450 x 240 stitches – and the new element names help a little with this. Moscovium would be useful for ‘Mc’ names and Tennessine gives you a ‘Ts’ to finish words such as RaTs and FArTs…

I hope you enjoy this new addition to the shop and there are more to come shortly.
