An extract from my July Newsletter...

We have just returned home from a holiday in our beloved Cornwall: I've relaxed, read a good book (Tracy Chevalier's A Single Thread), taken deep breaths of sea air, revisited favourite places and explored new ones. A couple of days into that holiday I also withdrew a quilt pattern from sale.

Back in May I released Tulips to Amsterdam and you welcomed it so enthusiastically. It's been one of my most popular releases and many of you participated in a sewalong this summer to make it together. It has been an utter joy seeing all of those different versions popping up in my Instagram feed.

But it soon became apparent that the pattern had problems. And not just the odd typo. There were cutting errors, missing sentences and inaccurate dimensions. As I tried to keep on top of the pattern corrections I came to slightly dread opening my emails, even though those emails were generous, tactful and kind. To those of you who took the time to write, I send my heartfelt thanks.
