Hello, hello blog friends! I just wanted to pop in today and show you this fantastic feature I have in this months Homespun magazine!! I'm so crazy excited about this I can't even tell you! Ok, maybe I can ...
If you're not aware of Homespun magazine, it's a beautiful sewing and quilting magazine from Australia. It really is so, so well put together; featuring projects you really do want to make! Though I know I might be a little biased saying that ;-) I was contacted by the lovely editor last year after she spy'ed my other embroidered shelf edging project I had been working on.
After a little discussion I went ahead and sketched up some motifs and tested out some embroidery designs. Do you remember these on the blog last year? Soon after I had two shelf edgings made, complete with cute scallop edging.
So there you have it; from initial designs to the final piece :-) I'm really pleased with the article (all 5 1/2 pages of it!!) and how it's all come together. Because I worked on it such a long time ago, I'd actually forgotten how it looked so I was really intrigued as to how they would photograph the finished project, but they did a perfect job so it was such a treat receiving a copy in the post! Wouldn't it be so cute in a vintage cabinet, with some lovely china? Hopefully this might spur me on to complete my cherry themed shelf edging, which has been patiently waiting for me to finish. We shall see.
They also did a little interview with me which was fun. If you're in the UK. and fancy picking up a copy, you can find it here; (although, this latest issue is not available yet) I actually purchased a previous issue from there before and it was easy and arrived very quickly. I'm not sure where you can buy it in the U.S.? but I know you can also get a digital version of the magazine too, if that helps anyone?
