Sewing, magazines, baking and gardening.

 What a week its been, lots of fun and exciting things happening. First off I can't wait to tell you that I have a quilt published in Homespun magazine. I don't think this issue is in the shops yet but it won't be far away. I got my issue in the mail and I couldn't wait to open it up and see my design.
 Do you like it?   All made in my favourite Kansas Troubles fabrics.
 The photography is so nice, even a photo of me and my profile is included.

 I have been sewing like a mad woman all week, working on secret projects for magazines and writing patterns til the early hours of the morning. Finally I think I'm on top of it all. Oh its hard being a designer. lol and  I am loving every minute.
 I have been doing some sewing for myself to which  is fun. I made a mini pouch to hold my ipod so I can find it in my gym bag but its so cute I  might have to use it  for sewing instead and make a new one.
 All my photos are out of order today, blogger is being silly and I don;t know how to fix it so its all a bit jumbled. This morning I have done my traditional Sunday Lunchbox baking. Made choc chips cookies and an oat slice and right now I have an apple slice in the oven, it smells so good.
 My garden is showing signs of Spring (At last) I'm so sick of winter. I have a few bulbs in flower.
 My mother in law sent me a box of cute little quilt block decals, I'm not really sure what they are called, they are made from metal and had a little jump ring on them so I made use of one and used it as a zipper pull. They are adorable and I think they make the zipper look so lovely.
So thats my week and all my news, I hope you have a wonderful week, enjoy your Sunday and I hope you find some sewing time.

Hello Leanne,
Congratulations on your publication and I love your beautiful fall quilt. You have been very busy and what fun to see those adorable bags. Great colors and love the charm you added to the zipper. It's perfect!
Yummy looking cookies. That is one thing I hope to be doing a lot more when it cools down here. Thanks for showing a photo of your garden. I'm glad you enjoyed my posting. The cosmos are called "Cosmos bright lights". The yellow and orange are just beautiful for a fall garden. I do need to keep up on the deadheading on them.
Have a wonderful week too.
Blessings!
