My name is Gail Bussi - those of you who are needleworkers may know me as a needlework designer, whose work has appeared in lots of different magazines and other publications. Now I have decided to take a bold leap and start my own blog! - to share some of my designs and other things I create.
Apart from cross stitch and other forms of embroidery I also love - just for starters - art and design, writing, cooking and baking, teatime, and everyday simple joys like my little dog, Rosie.
Some of my many dreams include: writing cookbooks, getting my little artworks published as cards, fabric designs or in calendars, and - one day - opening my own little cottage teashop, with a section dedicated to selling stitched items and patterns, too.
Here is a picture of one of my latest cross stitch designs - this one will probably appear in a magazine in due course. I decided to finish it slightly different to the usual framed piece; it's a little bit lopsided, but I am pleased with the overall look on the fabric background, and hopefully I will get better with this finishing as time goes on! And my photography skills also need some work, I know.
I would love for you to leave a comment on this blog - it would be much appreciated. If you prefer to contact me directly, please feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
