Today I wanted to let you know that I have 7 brand new notecards for sale in my Etsy shop. Each one features a London landmark or well-known British cultural icon.

Sometimes I won’t know what pattern I’m going to make until I sit down and start doing it but sometimes I just get stuck, and that’s when it can be helpful to have a bank of inspiration to pull from.
