For your information

This is just to let you know that over the course of the next
couple of weeks I shall be updating this site in an attempt
to fall in line with the currency of the country in which I am
now permanently residing.
Please don't be dismayed, or alarmed, if you suddenly discover
that prices are no longer given in euros but in pounds sterling (GBP).
This is not a price rise but merely a direct conversion from one
currency to another.
The service you receive will continue to be first class,
the designs you receive will be just as beautiful and
will have lost nothing in the translation,
and PayPal will do the rest as always.
I look forward to receiving your continued custom
and, indeed, friendship.

Dawn Chorus

On every tree there sits a bird
Singing a song of love
On every tree there sits a bird
And every one I ever heard
Could break my heart
Without a word
Singing a song of love
Price:  9,00 euros
Size in stitches:  293 x 126
The words are taken from the song "Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo"
which featured in the 1952 film adaptation
of Paul Galico's short story
The Man Who Hated People.
It starred the lovely Leslie Caron and
Mel Ferrer - remember him?
How can you resist?

Another breathtaking beauty from the Long Dog stables

Here for your delight and delectation is the latest
offering from Long Dog Samplers.
It goes by the title of:
weighs in at 19,00 euros apiece and covers the
area of a small football field.
I exaggerate, its 249 x 421 stitches to be precise.
No fancy photo's this time I'm afraid as I'm still unwell,
away from home and don't have access to all my
trusty photographic bits and bobs.
So off with you, order by email, settle up by Paypal
and repent at your leisure.
This one has definately got your name on it!

Count Your Blessings

Count Your Blessings
Size: 153 x 213 stitches
Price: 10,00 euros
I make no apology for the abominably poor quality of this photo
but I do, however, have a number of good excuses to offer:
1.  I was feeling extremely unwell,
2.  the light was very bad as it was raining heavily at the time, and
3.  the iron had blown a fuse.
