I love this complete pattern and I've used it on a couple of my projects, pieces and parts. Very nice pattern and easy to use. I recommend.

I got that sunshine in my pocket... and some tic tacs and loose change.

A Contemporary Twist on Traditional Craft

... I call it (not so) modern.

I have been making gifts for my family and friends for years. They kindly asked me to start buying them real presents, so now I am making them for you!

My background is in architecture which, I believe, makes me superior at sewing patterns and LEGO construction. At present I spend the majority of my time creating quirky cross stitch pieces. I have a very supportive family who finds my misplaced needles and goes in public with embroidery floss stuck to their clothes. I am busy training the next generation who are already showing great promise.

I am not cool enough to be vintage and not hip enough to be setting any trends. Given my nickname and my sensibilities, my shop (not so) MODERN MILLIE was born. Take a look around...

(not so) MODERN MILLIE has been seen in: Better Homes and Gardens magazine,, The Etsy Blog, Luri and Wilma magazine,, Homespun magazine and the Brit+Co. shop.
