I’ve become a bit addicted to embroidery lately. I’ve been carrying around little projects to have on hand. After finishing my Mollie Makes bear I happened to stumble onto this little beauty on Etsy in Jenny Blair’s shop.
It’s a sampler so just the printed fabric arrived for me to fill it in how I’d like. Which is a great idea. It came packaged very nicely, and the fact that it’s all nice and flat means that shipping was pretty reasonable.
She has a mix of pdf, fabric and kits in her shop. They’re all really quite lovely. I’m swooning over these ones.
Find her blog online or follow her prettiness on Instagram.
I love getting my new Mollie Makes magazines. I diligently travel to the magazine store every few weeks, the only place I can still find the UK imports, and pick up my copy. They set it aside for me. I have to buy the imports because I want the kits. I tried the US editions when they started printing them but I couldn’t bear to miss out on kits and also I found some of the content was recycled and I’d seen it before in the UK editions.
I tend to toss the kits in a drawer and then hope to get to them. Recently I’ve been making it a point to get to them and this kit helped give me the push I needed to do so. It’s also launched me into a stitchy frenzy. I pulled out my previously (read ages ago) purchased Kiriki kit.
It’s from Kingston, Ontario based Kiriki Press. It’s neat to see people grow their businesses. I remmebre meeting her years ago at some Etsy events in Toronto. Now she’s got her Etsy shop and a fancy website.

Now I’ll have to get going on a few other projects I have lying around, and this lovely came with this month’s issue.
And of course I’ve still got my lovely get well gift from Mollie.
