I was trying to get a head start on the weekend cleaning today but was interrupted by two deliveries. My designer copies of Stitch and Quilting Arts Gifts arrived within minutes of each other. I think both are due to hit the news stands this week and they are also available from the Interweave Store.
I am looking forward to sitting down later with a nice cuppa to read through them properly. From what I have seen so far, they both have plenty of inspiring projects and articles, and feature many of my favourite bloggers. I was most excited to find out that Stitch will now be published four times a year.
Here is a little peak at my projects -
A Recycled Denim Wine Tote that I made using an old pair of Sarah's jeans. I added some sashiko inspired stitchery to the front, and reattached a pocket on the back to store a corkscrew.
A Travel Tie Portfolio - a fun gift for Dad's or business travellers. I made this out of a Indonesian sarong that I repurposed, and added a cute tie appliqué to the front.
My Advent Houses - I can't wait to string them up this Christmas!
Hope you don't mind me sharing! Even though I have been lucky enough to have some of my designs published in the past, I still get a huge thrill seeing them in print. I still can't believe that my houses made the cover:)
