Sewing and magazines.

 Another busy week has come and gone, where do the days get to I wonder. I have some exciting news to share with you, I have a new design that has just been published in the latest issue of Patch work and stitching, Its due out in Newsagents next week.
 The theme for the issue was Winter, so I designed a candle mat. Just something a little different, it was so cute and fun to make. I am delighted how it turned out. Of course I had to do a little stitchery. My favourite part of quilting.

 The magazine did a beautiful job of photographing my project, they always do, I am quite pleased how my photos turned out to, What do you think?
 Last weekend a few of my friends and I got together to start Amy Butlers Weekend bag. I had the best day but the trouble is when you sew with friends we never seem to achieve alot. This is one side and the front pocket,  I used my favourite tilda fabrics and made my bag like a quilt,
 I even sewed a little label on the front to make it a little more unique. I can't wait to get back to this and get it finished. I may need some help, its quite tricky.
The first day of winter today and I have  picked the last of the roses that decided to flower, they will brighten my kitchen for a few days.


Hope you all had a great weekend and you  got a little sewing done.
