I have been thinking (no I didn't give myself a headache) about my favourite designers and why I like them so here goes......
Anni Downs ..... Hatched and Patched
Annie Smith.....Country Keepsake Dolls
Sally Giblin....Rivendale Collection
Michelle Ridgway....Rag-Tag Stitchin
The reasons are very simple really, all of these ladies patterns are very easy to understand with clear instructions and I've not found any mistakes either........so many patterns these days are confusing with lots of errors and for me it is very frustrating and spoils the whole experience of crafting. I guess its not hard to see who are my favourites by checking out my blog posts and photos so I am very interested in your comments and to hear about your favourites.
Naturally you would expect my little project that I have to show you will be from one of the above ladies and you would be right..... its an Anni Downs pattern "Pear Tree Pincushions" they were fun to make .... there are so many lovely pincushions around so I think I will add a few more to my collection.
Well I'm off to a retreat on Monday with the Tuesday girls at Glenrose Cottage in Warwick and like Teresa I have all the essentials ready ...... lollies and choccies of course..... what is a retreat without loads of sugar.
2 sleeps to go girls......
