Good morning everyone, hope you are doing well?

Here is the pattern for project four of your mini journal. You can download the pattern here.

Sweet violets


As you know my new book was delayed as got stuck in Hong Kong during the Covid lockdown but at last it has arrived and on the 15th June it will be released in UK and Europe. I can’t wait to show you whats inside, so keep a look out for the blog post very soon! Due to Covid 19 the publishers were unable to ship my advance copies to South Africa, so I asked them to send a copy to each of my daughters in London, UK. Yesterday they called me on Zoom and unveiled the book page by page!

I had such a lump in my throat and had to wipe away the odd tear as they showed me the beautiful layout, described the feel of the pages, the smell of a new book and read the odd excerpt. It was bittersweet as normally I would be the first to open a copy of my new book but this time it will be you my customers and readers who will get to see it first, so I will be relying on your feedback and photos if possible – thank you.

It will be released in USA and rest of the world in July and can be pre-ordered at any good online bookseller including:

Amazon (+ all Amazon worldwide)

Amazon UK

Penguin Random House

Book Depository

Search Press UK

Search Press Australia

Search Press USA

Barnes & Noble


There will be an exclusive launch by Search Press on the TV shopping channel Sewing Street on 8th June, time slot TBC – so please bookmark this date if you would like to tune in online.

Meantime, wherever you are in the world, you are always in my thoughts, keep smiling and happy stitching.
