Well hello! I am so conscious that I’m not blogging as much as I used to – it’s not because I’m getting fed up of blogging – I love sharing Bustle & Sew news and reading all your comments. No it’s more that my grandma duties have been taking up a lot of my time lately – I’m sure grandmas everywhere will know exactly what I mean! My new little grandson is now eight weeks old and is definitely fully aware of his baby right to have his whole family dashing around after him fulfilling his every desire. I often think that being a baby must be amazing – but sadly none of us can remember it!!
Anyway, I have been managing to find time for stitching and I’m delighted to be able to give you a peep inside the March Bustle & Sew Magazine. Here are the six new Bustle & Sew projects ….
As usual there’s a variety of techniques, including, as promised, my first-ever cross stitch pattern. This was great fun to do – my cross stitching skills have definitely improved with age – I now have much more patience and attention to detail – and so I’m already working on another design for the April issue. I’m intrigued with the idea of combining cross stitch with free hand embroidery, so do watch this space for more news on that over the coming weeks. As well as the Bustle & Sew projects there’s lots more to enjoy between the covers, so here’s a preview of the forthcoming issue …
The March issue will be published on Thursday 25th February- so if you’re a subscriber please do watch out for it arriving in your inbox then. I’m hoping to restart the Bustle & Sew Spring Stitchalong next weekend too, with huge apologies for the delay – moving house and becoming a grandma have taken so much more of my time than I anticipated. But now I think I’m good to go – and may well start with a waste canvas section!
