After the final dash of finishing my book … I have at last been able to knuckle down into finishing off some of the new Jacqui P bits and bobs.
Our kits are in the middle of a make over, and I cant wait to get back all my bits and bobs and share them with you. Meanwhile here is the first of one of our latest kits (which was finished last AUGUST!!!) yes I am that behind!! I have had so many requests for a modern baby sampler - to tie in with the wedding sampler that we sell so well.
It can easily be personalised with my signature font alphabet – or for a small fee we (I) will create your own chart for you.
Happy Stitching x

Regular readers will know of my recent commission by Dame Jacqueline Wilson to create a crafty piece to coincide with the launch of her new book Sapphire Battersea.
Jacqueline Wilson is a legend – and the most borrowed author in British Libraries, selling over 25 million books in the UK alone. Most famous perhaps for her character Tracy Beaker, she has very loyal young fans (including my daughter!). I cannot tell you how thrilled and utterly honored I was to be asked to complete this challenge for her.
Today Jacky sent me this picture of her and the sampler at the Superfan Party for the book launch – so I thought I would share …
The sampler is in Septembers The Official Jacqueline Wilson Mag.. there are lots of events this Autumn for Jacky’s fans, including her very own festival.. so this really is a very exciting project… and you can download it for free here for a limited time only.

This week is the launch of the new book by Jacqueline Wilson – Sapphire Battersea.
At the beginning of this year I was asked by Jacqueline and the team from Jacqueline Wilson Magazine (JW Mag) to design a sampler that Sapphire could have stitched over the course of her life.
It has to be naive enough to have been started when she was a tot – and only have a couple of stitches so that her readership of young girls would be encouraged to take up the craft!
The stitched framed sample was launched at the Book Launch and a the Super Fan event while I was ‘in recovery’.. and the fans seem to like it! The sampler is going on tour with Jacqueline on her promotional travels over the next few months – including her own festival!
But from today you can download the sampler exclusively from Granny Knits FOR FREE HERE, for a limited time only.
I has been a complete honour to have been involved in this project – and I hope that it inspires some new young blood to take up stitching.

In the batch of goodies from the framers yesterday, I also got back this sampler stitched on vintage aida that my Mum made for me. I love some of the classic cross stitch designs, mainly because in the current age of ‘disposables’, they have a sense of timeliness that seems to surpass any of the frivolities of modern times.
I still have handiwork from various generations of my family which are wheeled out for special occasions, or indeed on permanent display. The longevity of the goods is surely something to treasure, and I only hope that my new wedding sampler and other contemporary designs will have the same heritage value in years to come…
