2013 at Bustle & Sew

2013 was a very interesting year here in Devon.  There were lots of highs and some lows, plenty of hard work and productivity – and a new member of the family too!  In 2013 I published twelve copies of the Bustle & Sew e-magazine, taking me up to issue 36 – something I never imagined when I began it in 2011 …..

I also published three new e-books, and a new edition of the popular Rosie & Bear Around the Year Quilt Book ….

As well as welcoming a new member of the team …..

Ben and Daisy

 Who was very small and cute when she arrived, but quickly grew into a proper pest! 

Ben and Daisy

 Luckily for her a very much loved pest!

And now we’re looking forward to 2014 and all that year may bring us.  The most exciting event of the decade will of course be Rosie & Dan’s wedding in June and I’ve been busy making mice for her cake and sweet tables using my free Pincushion Mouse pattern ….

So I’ll have  lots to plan for and keep track of during 2014.  If you don’t have your 2014 calendar yet, then don’t risk missing any imprtant dates.  Just download my free printable Bustle & Sew 2014 Calendar (page to a month and formatted for both letter and A4 paper sizes).

  4. Hello Helen,
    Just to wish you a Very Happy New Year and to thank you very much for all your wonderful ideas for projects. I’m new to Bustle and Sew but I’m really looking forward to the rest of 2014 with your magazine. I’ve just seen the photo of Daisy as a puppy with ‘Big Ben’ – she’s lovely. I love the way you put lots of photos and news about Ben and Daisy’s ‘doings’ on your website – they are hilarious.

  5. Wow! She has grown so fast! and so adorable! But Ben don’t worry – you are still a handsome dude! Happy new year – looking forward to all the happenings you have in store and share on the blog.
