Taking photos for the December Magazine

Yes, today the sun came out at last – though as I am typing now, it looks very much as though it’s going to rain again before too long. At least we don’t have the same severe problems with snow and then flooding here as they do in the north-eastern part of the USA – I do hope everything gets back to normal quite soon for you if you live there.

I have had a whole heap of projects stacked up nearly all week waiting for the gloom to lift so I could take some nice bright sparkly photos ….

Yes – that’s all the projects for the December issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine – out on Thursday.  This morning I was finally able to arrange them all nicely in the corner of my living room just below the window, so lots of lovely light …

Looking a lot nicer, than just in an untidy heap!  Now I’m busy putting the finishing touches to the magazine, whilst nibbling on some delicious cake.  The Newfies feel that my piece of cake should by rights belong to them, and they’re trying to transfer it into their mouths by the power of thought alone …..

No chance is what I said.  Far too nice to share with you two!  And anyway, I needed to feed my brain while I was working on the magazine cover …..

Which is finished – though the interior isn’t quite ready to reveal to the world just yet.  I’ll be back next week with a full preview – and don’t forget if you’d like to learn more and subscribe, then you can do so over on my magazine page.


Ben and Daisy, that cake is not good for doggies, I’m sure there is a special cake/biccy for you somewhere, just be good and see what happens…………
I love the things you made Helen, they are great. Looking forward as I always do to the next magazine
