Another post at last!

About time I added a post to this sadly neglected but highly sophisticated blog!

Lots of wonderful things have happened this year.

I now have four book contracts. Three with Search Press, UK for knitted toys and a History of Textiles with Remember When, an imprint of Pen and Sword, also UK. Very exciting. I feel my life has now begun in earnest.

Pictured here are two photos of my gothic knitted horror.

I've also uploaded an illustration I did for my daughter of the Queen of Hearts..

The pencil drawing of the little girl is unfinished but I think it will start a series of fine pencil drawings called The Playroom.

I have so many ideas and plans I just need the time and energy to get them up and running.

I'm also getting a website done. It will be: http://www.fionamcdonald.com.au/ I shall link it to the blog when it is ready (we are only in the prelimanary stages).

Until then I shall try to keep this blog a little more up to date with lots of pictures.
