A week in bed…

What a week it’s been here at Bustle & Sew HQ.  This was the week that Covid finally came calling and so I have spent practically all of it in bed feeling very sad and sorry for myself.  Today however, I am feeling quite a lot better – this is the first time I’ve been able to sit at my laptop since the pesky test came back positive.  Thank heavens for vaccinations though is all I can say, otherwise the last few days could have been much more scary.

Anyway, it’s nice to be back and as I don’t have any news to share from last week, I thought I’d go back a little way, to the beginning of the month, for some lovely news that I haven’t shared yet – that one of my patterns was included in Issue 20 of Love Embroidery Magazine…..

Yes, it’s my Winter Walk Hoop – and it’s so exciting to see it in print.  If you haven’t come across Love Embroidery it’s a great magazine with some really enjoyable projects and I totally recommend taking a look.  Although it’s a UK publication, it’s available in digital form too.  And, thinking of magazines, I have some catching up to do for the December edition of the Bustle & Sew Magazine.  Luckily I was well ahead before falling ill, so all is set for publication next week.



Greeting from Florida. I’m so sorry COVID caught you. Very glad to hear you had the vaccine and therefore a milder case that didn’t require hospitalization. I pray you have no lasting effects. I understand it takes quite a while to actually feel good again. I love ❤️ your Winter Walk Hoop!


Dear Helen
It was a sad bit of news to hear you had picked up COVID.
So happy to hear that you have recovered and in time to enjoy Christmas.
Praying that the world will soon be healed and normality, as we knew it, can resume.
Wishing you and your beloved family joy, peace and happiness at Christmas and throughout the coming year.
Thank you for a fabulous magazine.
