I am so excited to share with you some
wonderful news! Almost twelve months ago I received an intriguing
email, and when I had finished reading it I was full of joy and excitement . . . and now I
can share that joy and excitement with you!
C&T Publishing had emailed to say they were planning to add a new item to
their wonderful gift range, and they asked me if I would be interested in the idea of
producing playing cards using the designs from my Stitching with Beatrix
Potter book! I was so thrilled and honored and of course embraced the idea immediately—how many of us can say our designs are featured on playing cards? And playing
cards are not just for quilters, as they suit all ages and people across the
seems so long ago that idea was discussed and now they are finally
available for you! The cards feature
blocks from the Nursery quilt and also my reproduction version of the 1863
wedding quilt that belonged to Beatrix Potter’s parents. Of course all of these
patterns are in the book, where you can learn more and make your own versions.
The packs of cards make such wonderful
and very affordable gifts for family and friends and would also be ideal as stocking
fillers at Christmas time.
Thank you so much to the team at C&T Publishing for making this possible . . . I am chuffed to bits! You can see more of this story
