At last peace and quiet reigns here at Coombe Leigh. My two canine “assistants” have been rolling around play-fighting for most of the evening, but finally they have collapsed into a large warm furry heap, both snoring very loudly indeed. I’m sure this moment of peace won’t last long, so I’m making the most of it!
I can hardly believe that the Bustle & Sew Magazine is now 2 whole years old! It seems such a short while since I began back in January 2011 – and now I’m working on issue 25 in between Daisy’s playtimes. I thought you might like to see the first two patterns for this month’s issue – I think I already showed you “Birds on a Wire”
and now they’ve been joined by my “Three Patchwork Eco-Totes”
These are great to keep rolled up in your handbag in case of impromptu shopping – and each applique motif features a different patchwork technique. I’ve lots more planned for this issue too.
And …. as it’s the magazine’s second birthday I’m having a giveaway at the weekend – the prize will be a whole year’s subscription worth over $60! I’ll be posting the giveaway at the weekend so don’t forget to check back then!
Finally – I realised that when I uploaded my “Thinking About Colour” mini-guide, I added the wrong details on the back and didn’t put “please feel free to share”. So here it is again, this time with the correct information – and please do feel free to share as much as you want!
