About

Enough procrastinating... it's time to give this thing a shot!

Hi, I'm Rachel and I live in beautiful Tasmania, Australia.

I'm a lover of all sorts of crafts... in the past I have dabbled in painting, knitting, crochet, tatting, sewing and patchwork, beading, paper cutting, scrapbooking and mini clay sculpture. My two greatest loves, though, are drawing and cross stitch. I've been drawing all my life and have had a few little commissions over the years... I spent all of my pocket money on pens and paper growing up! My friends years ago suggested that I design a colouring book for adults but I think I have missed the boat there :P

Mum taught me to cross stitch when I was 8 years old and she was expecting one of my sisters. She did it for a season and rarely does it now (she prefers knitting... it grows faster!), but for me cross stitch has become something of an obsession. I've done many in the last 25 years... mostly to give away for birthdays and that sort of thing. My favourite designs are quirky and cute and fairly quick and easy to stitch. Like most cross stitchers, I have a beautiful but very complicated project in the bottom of my craft bag - you know the one, where it is 90% done but now all of the complicated bits where you have to change colour every 5 stitches are left and you can't manage to motivate yourself to finish it... hopefully I do sometime soon so I can stop feeling guilty about it with every new project I pick up!

I've been thinking about starting a creative business to balance out my 'real job' (as a scientist) for years but it has been difficult for all sorts of reasons until now. I am fortunate enough to have a permanent job at the moment and an opportunity to decrease my load to 0.9 rather than full time which is a great blessing. In the past I've used my extra day off per fortnight to do odd jobs around the house... but I was talking to one of my more entrepreneurial colleagues at work early in 2016 about our mutual desires to get a small business off the ground and our conversation inspired me to finally do something about it. So here I am... running my own little shop with about 90 cross stitch patterns I have designed and stitched since then. I get so much joy from seeing other people enjoy working on my designs that I don't think I could part with my little store now! I was lucky enough to be featured in the reviews section of The World of Cross Stitching in November 2017, which I was super excited about :)

Thanks for visiting me... if you have any suggestions about what I can do better or if you have any ideas for designs you would love to see in my shop I would really love to hear from you :) I hope you like my work - if you do, please favourite my page and share links to my designs with any friends you think may be interested. Happy crafting!

I now have an email newsletter! If you're interested you can sign up for that here: http://eepurl.com/dqFNxD
