December Magazine is out tomorrow!

I know I’ve said it before .. and I’m going to say it again – I simply don’t know where the time goes!  November seems to have absolutely flown past.  Here we are again at the end of the month, and it’s magazine publication day tomorrow …

Cover Merged

The December issue is always a favourite of mine as I absolutely love Christmas and all the festivities.  20 years ago (and more) the beginning of Christmas was marked by Rosie’s nursery or school production.  Over the years I have watched everything from the traditional nativity play to a marine-themed extravaganza and lots in between! Then later in the month there’s Carols by Candlelight, while tomorrow the Christmas Market opens in Bath!  As always, there’s lots of seasonal goodies in the December issue and here’s a quick peep between the covers for you….

If you’re quick there’s still time to subscribe and receive November’s issue this evening before it disappears into our back catalogue for ever!  Just CLICK HERE to learn more.

And finally ….. I’ve already begun work on patterns for the January Magazine ….


Yes, that’s a GOOD and NON-MISCHIEVOUS little doodle snuggled down into my quilt this morning as I finished off a few details.  Well, that is to say it’s a golden (or labra) doodle head.  I am beginning a new series of faux taxidermy heads featuring different breeds of dog and Rosie’s adorable little dog Tilly who stayed with me at the weekend acted as model for the very first one.  If there’s a breed you’d like to see featured in this series then please do let me know.


I have a cavoodle, and she looks like a mini groodle or labradoodle, so your January pattern already has my dog covered!


I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and also to inform you that because of health issues I am going to unsubscribe for awhile. I have truly enjoyed reading your blog; even though I do not comment much. I hope that you understand I can not give any more details. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful creative day.


Thank you so much Brenda, I/m sorry to hear of your health problems and hope you’ll soon be on the road to recovery. Very best wishes from all of us here at Bustle & Sew HQ xx
