As I know I've missed at least one week over the past month or so, I thought this week's Saturday Share could make up for my absence by sharing more than one design.

What a very sad week this one has been. There are so many books the late, great Sir Terry Pratchett should have written and, now, never will write.

An interesting Saturday Share this week because it's one of those pictures that makes you stop and wonder what's going on.

Sometimes when it comes to the Saturday Share I find myself feeling as if I should be writing loads of introductory text that explains why I've chosen a particular design.

Generally I only share pictures - that's because my sewing skills are nowhere near as good as my cross stitch and blackwork skills and I tend to share the designs that I can imagine myself stitching if I reached the grand old age of 334 and had time to do everything I want to..

If you came here via the homepage you will see that at the moment my Etsy shop is closed. It has been since the beginning of 2015. But I'm hopeful it will be open again soon.

So many gorgeous designs to choose from this week - it's been really difficult to choose just one Saturday Share - so I've decided to go for three (and even that's proved a difficult decision!).

As soon as I saw the design I'm sharing this week I knew it would be very difficult to find one to beat it.

I love the idea of projects that you can add to monthly and that form a record of the year. It's even better when there's a story behind the designs.

There were owl designs this week but, as I'm always posting owl designs, I decided to resist and opt for something completely different.

Happy New Year - I hope 2015 brings you all you could wish for. Right now, it's the first Saturday share of the year from the designers on Facebook's Cross Stitch Showcase and, as it's been a while since the last one, I thought I'd share a couple that feature some of my favourite themes.

It's been a quiet week on the Cross Stitch Showcase this week. Partly it's the run-up to Christmas when we all get busy and partly it's because so many of us are worried about VATMOSS. But there were still loads of lovely designs to stitch from!.

Normally on a Saturday I post a link to another designer’s work because we’re a supportive bunch that way. Today I am going to support every designer out there, particularly those based in the EU.

I love the idea behind this week's Saturday Share - in fact, among my working sketches is my own take on the theme.

Christmas stitching is a difficult one - large designs should probably have been started months ago and it feels a little too early to be stitching small designs. So,,, even though I was very tempted, I've resisted the urge to post a Christmas design this week - I have a little plan in mind for a couple of weeks' time.

Time for the Saturday Share once again - this week has flown by and that sense of time flying by is what inspired me to make this week's choice..

This week's themes on Cross Stitch Showcase were based on songs - and it's always interesting seeing who can come up with the most interesting interpretation.

This week's themes were the abstract nouns of hope, peace, joy, faith and love. It was interesting to see what the designers made of them.

OK so I've returned to the subject of copyright. It's one of my hobbyhorses because I live in hope that, eventually, people will see the harm they do. This time around it's not a designer who's complaining...

When the themes for the Facebook page Cross Stitch Showcase feature words like 'dragon' and 'flowers' I give a mental groan because I know it's going to be practically impossible to pick just one design to share. But I was wrong - because this week it was easy.
