Our computer has been to the PC repair shop and I have been off-line for a while.
While I was waiting for my Spoonflower samples to arrive, I had been planning to write about Sue Bakker, but thanks to the interruption I have rather lost the thread of of all that I wanted to say (no pun intended).
So what follows is shorter and briefer than I originally intended –
I am very sorry to say that I only know Sue Bakker by reputation and not personally.
She is also a member of The Miniature Needlework Society (International)
I know that her designs appear in various books, but I have never seen any of her charts offered for sale in kit form and I can only suggest that anyone interested in her work should contact her through one of these websites.
One of my friends, who knew how much I enjoy canvas work, gave me a copy of the International Dolls House News (Volume 26 No 11, October 31st 1997) containing one of her charted designs, and above is my attempt to do her work justice.
I think that it is a superb design and I found it was a great deal easier to work than its intricate appearance suggests.
