When I print the PDF the font for the title isn't the worked with the backstitch pattern though. Help!


Thank you so much for the tutorial. I'm sure I'm going to learn so much!


Hi Helen, I love the stitch book. I think I will do one page with the samples then the facing page with a little picture I make up using the stitches. I have lots going on at present so won't have anything to show for a few weeks.


You really did a nice job of explaining, thank you. I like the idea of a book for mine. I hope to start tomorrow. Thank you.

Thanks Helen!!
Enjoyed every moment!! Now I need to go and practice!


Excellent instructions Helen! and I love that you are showing examples as well. All too often there are instructions for stitches but you never see how the final result will look!

Hi Helen,
It looks wonderful, but I am also having trouble downloading the pattern. All I get is a blank grey screen.


Great lesson Helen, want to begin my book however has anyone else had trouble printing the PDF, when mine prints it comes up with solid lines instead of broken....what am I doing wrong?


Thanks Helen... wonderfully explained.


Wonderful lesson!I like the sound of the book.


Thanks Helen I have been poping in and out all morning LOL itching to start .

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
