The Pixie Life

Kittenwatch update.

Kittenwatch update.

Good morning!It has been a crazy busy week for us here at Pixiecraft, Littlest started forest school, Mr P and Little Pixie have both celebrate their birthdays. That is a lot of cake in one week. Today I thought it was about time I gave you all an update on the kittens. Those of you who follow our social media may remember that in January we welcomed these two adorable little balls of fluff into our home. Betty who is black and Lola who is grey/blue. I was sure we must be bonkers to add two more excitable little girls to our home...

Keeping the fire burning for your small business

Good evening lovely people! You may have noticed that the Big Pixie Collab planning has taken over my life at the moment…but YOU are fuelling that. The reaction to every single piece so far on social media has been incredible. It has really reignited a fire and passion for this work.

Over the last few years I have stitched collaborative pieces with a few different artists and every time it has been a...

Juggling the Daily Circus

Good evening lovely people!In my life here are two questions I get asked time and time again. In fact I am fairly sure I have reached a stage of my life where 80% of my adult conversations are about these two topics.  Do you really stitch everything by hand? and How do you find the time!? The answers are easy "YES! can you not see that I have more plasters on my hands than fingers?" and "Honestly I  haven't got a clue" but they don't tell the full story. They are the answers I give to avoid wasting my rare...


Lets get stitching

Lets get stitching

Good evening lovely people!When I first started learning hand embroidery I very quickly discovered that I didn't like sewing from other peoples patterns. I have never been particularly good at following instructions (as I am sure any of my high school art teachers would delight in telling you). I am the sort of person who buys a piece of flat pack furniture, wings it and then completely regrets it at the end when it doesn't all fit quite right! So it was inevitable with embroidery that I was going to end up drawing my own patterns. I find it immensely...
