Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a great December, mine was super busy with lots of markets, it was hectic but so nice to get out and meet people and display my work after being holed up in the studio for so long!
Now that Xmas is over I can show off these custom pieces. I had some really nice presents to make for people this year – let’s hope all the recipients were happy!
Just a quick PS – It’s January which means I have to have a sale in my shop (it’s the law!!) so if you had your eye on anything now is the time to buy! Use the code JANSTITCHSALE for 20% off 🙂
So had the time to finish all these pieces based on vintage maps ive collected:
^^ Aberystwyth town map…..
^^ Really nice colourful map of Killarney, Ireland.
^^ really random wooded section from my Aberystwyth map.
Have made lots of plans for new items but I have a feeling a lot of them will never actually happen…… New cushions almost finished though!

A xenophobic map:
