Thrusting myself into the 21st Century!

Well, I've taken the plunge and started this blog. Not sure how I'll get on. Will probably be constantly seeking help from the kids!
This blog is really to act as a good old fashioned kick up the Arse for me to finish all of my far too many to count UFO's and to get feed back.
I've now got to work out how to post photos of my UFO's, Finishes & to do pile.
Thanks for dropping by,

  1. Jayne i love your work, especially the owl cushion. My daughter is a huge fan of owls so I would love to know where you got the pattern.
    I haven't made a cushion like that before. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more!

  2. Thanks for your comment. I pulled the pattern out of an old Women's Weekly magazine (UK),that I came across one night in work. It was a very lucky find. I'd been surfing all over the net for ages for owl applique patterns to make a cushion for my Son's partner as I'm not very good at drawing.
    Thankfully, Lauren loves it.
    I've since found this free pattern here:

  3. I've also just found this owl:
