Portrait Paintings by Steve

Hello all,

I wanted to share some more of Steve's amazing artwork with you today. These are definitely some of my favorites. He is so good at painting portraits, especially conveying character is sometimes quite hard. But he always manages it somehow.

I hope you like these. They are both available in the artshop as prints. And there is still a 3 for 2 offer on all prints. So go get them and make an artlover happy at Christmas.

Lots of love,
Nadine (and Steve)

PS: I am also sharing these on Paint Party Friday, and I recommend you to go and check out all the amazing artwork there. So much inspiration and talent.

Black Friday - Cyber Monday SALE 20% off

Hello all,

yep, it's that time of year agin, already, UNBELIEVABLE. I can't believe how time flies, we're so close to Christmas and I have NO PRESSIES yet. Argh.

I have started this year's Black Friday - Cyber Monday Sale and you get 20% off everything in both the Quilt Shop and the Art Shop until Monday night. So at least you can go and get some pressies for your loved ones. Maybe some plushies or a quilt for someone or maybe a table runner or placemats?

I wish I could actually take advantage of the Black Friday deals too but we are skint and have to wait until December. Especially since I am going to the Knitting and Stitching Show on Sunday in Harrogate. Will have to keep a close eye on my purse, I will be so tempted to buy more fabrics.

Is anyone else going? Oh and are you all participating in the Black Friday - Cyber Monday Sales, either as a seller or a buyer?

Lots of love,

Meet "Nerdy Nadine"

Hello all,

I know I have been neglecting you and I promise you, I am repenting. But I hope you will like my new plushies design called "Nerdy Nadine" and be less cross with me.

I wanted to experiment with some new designs for plushies/cushions and this is the first result. I have to say I love them. They look so retro and they all seem to have a different personality in a way.

And they make lovely cushions, especially with the soft fleece on the back. They are all slightly different in size, with the smaller ones being 15" tall and 10" wide and the taller ones 17" tall and about 9" wide.

What do you think? I hope you like them. They are all in the shop now.

Love, Nadine
