We’re working very hard to try to complete the design of a daffodil bookmark in time for Easter.

We were inspired to do this by the anticipated arrival of Spring – after all it was the Spring equinox last week. Well, as everyone in the UK now knows, winter is not letting go of its grip just yet . . . with a ridiculous amount of snow having fallen again overnight.

But ever the optimists, we are keen to get the bookmark completed as a cheery note for Easter. We aim to get the chart posted here before Good Friday as a FREE present for all you keen stitchers out there.

We hope this will give you another small indication of the sort of work we like and our commitment to further developing J Needlecraft. This is the start of building on our hobby and love for cross stitch and we hope you can help us by showing your support by following this blog – or giving us your thoughts.

So just a short blog today, but we’ll be back in touch soon. In the meantime, here’s an image of the stitched Daffodil Bookmark, as designed by Jane Gordon.

Visit again before Easter, when the FREE chart should (!!) be available for you to download.
