I have a confession to make, I have another love in my life. I have been working on another venture and this weekend it took flight. I am now the founder of an arts space here in Stitchopolis. Can you believe it??  Check it out here.  Hope you like!


You know I like change. Well, I’ve got quite a lot to share…change is somewhat of an understatement for what’s been going on chez Stitch. Ready? Well, I’ve this far done my creative work as a hobby really, taking second place to everything else. I had a pressured job in a technical financial area and…

Swatch this space

Here’s the next batch of fabrics! I need to think what to do with them but I’d be really grateful for any thoughts about which designs are the best or worse. What do you think?

The ice house

Stasherella’s first quilty item is up on etsy…a really unusually coloured schoolhouse block quilt. Probably late 1800’s early 1900’s, it’d be lovely in a white or pastel painted room. If you are interested please contact me with any questions. I’ve also put my basket top up. Both hard to relinquish. I hope they are loved.


I have two small boys and I watched them at Christmas, fizzing with excitement. Now I know EXACTLY how they felt because my first batch of fabric swatches are here!!!! I’m thrilled! I can’t explain how satisfying it is to touch your own designs. Better than chocolate. Really. I’m going to use the 8″ squares…

All change

Did I mention I was busy? I’ve been feeling guilty about not posting on my blog. Sorry. But I’ve got to the point where every single evening I now have in my diary what I’m going to do. Is that mad? I don’t care. It works. Tonight I had a night off because the weather…

Stitch Towers

So, my wander into the world of sales continues…I’ve upped the number of designs in Spoonflower and put some stash items onto Etsy. Yes, Stasherella is open for business too. I’ve put links below. It’s all very small at the moment but its a start. Thanks to everyone who has been so encouraging. Lovely ladies…

Better late….

So, having recovered from a potential hack attack, here I am with some thoughts on new years resolutions for 2013. Overall, I tend to shy away from them. In 2012 I went for an attitude rather than a specific goal. And it was pretty good. My life has changed radically in the last year and…

Lets stick together

So, lets look forward…quite frankly, the present is too tedious to focus on…what’s coming up here at Stitchopolis? Well, my New Year’s Resolution was to declutter and Choose Life. I see no reason to abandon this goal. I’ve done some serious decluttering this year, actively and passively. And that means space. Space to create a…
