A Ship's Manor Birthday!

Three years ago I started a journey. I had an idea of where I wanted to go but, for the most part, I just let go. It's like having multiple destinations on a map but no routes to take to get there. A whole bunch of designs have been released, some through magazines and one in a Christmas book. These designs have told a story...perhaps not subtle but definitely known to me. Some of them have been familiar places and others are completely new. I pretty much wound up in a new town with unique inhabitants. When you're a new designer you have no idea what designs will be welcomed by the people. So, you throw yourself out there and see what happens.

Thank you for believing in me and guiding me along the way. We may not know where we are going but, with you by my side, we will definitely enjoy the journey.

Now, lets celebrate!  I created a new freebie for you. It is called 'My One Weakness'. You can get it on the Ship's Manor website. www.shipsmanor.com

I have also made a bundle for you. It is on etsy and includes a signed copy of the design, the fabric, a needle minder and some mill hill beads. Unfortunately the fabric is difficult to make. It was just one of those happy mistakes so this bundle is limited to 20 people. That's all she wrote. You can get the bundle here. https://www.etsy.com/shop/shipsmanor


  1. Happy B-Day to Ship's Manor!!!
    And many, many more.
    Thanks for the great freebie.

  2. Hi I actually left you the latest news over at Deviantart - saw the link for your blog so checked it out. Very cool designs, I really enjoyed them. Please post pics of your miniatures project - I would love to see them. I have always love miniatures but not sure if I would have the patience for a project of that scale.

    I really loved the Fortune Teller of your needlework designs, I can't use a needle and thread to save my life though so there is no trying to work that design for me . (I actually flunked home ec in school sigh...)

    Anyway Gene says hi and stop by my blog as well when you have a moment. It's a mixture of everything - home design stuff, personal rants, paranormal items etc etc. Quite mixed up as you know I am LOL

    Great job on everything - I am really happy for you and your success :)

  3. HEY! Glad to hear from you. I will check out dA. I have not been over there is a very long time.
