I am lost for words….

I received an email from Rosie this afternoon which began “4 days without a post?  Come on motherkins! ” She is quite right, it is indeed four days since I posted about my magazine subscription giveaway- a most unusual length of time between posts for me.  This is because I have been, quite simply, lost for words!

When I asked entrants to leave a comment telling me which was their favourite Bustle & Sew pattern, I expected just a list of pattern names.  But … I have been completely blown away – entirely overcome by the kindness and generosity of all your comments.  I had no idea – thank you all so very much for taking the trouble to let me know that you enjoy my designs, as well as telling me a little about the patterns you’ve stitched and the lucky people who’ve received your creations.  Once again, a great big “THANK YOU” to you all from the bottom of my heart.

“Thanks for being so nice to our Mum!”

 But although I’ve been quiet, I’ve been keeping myself busy as the next issue of the magazine is out next week.  I’m just putting the finishing touches to my “Mice are Nice” embroidery, and managed to take some photographs of another magazine project, the Daisy Knot Tote (named for the applique daisies, not the cute little Newfie puppy!)  earlier this week …

I’m also (assisted by Rosie) revising the magazine cover and have changed my pattern cover sheet too – reflected in the new-style photographs for this month’s projects – I hope you like these changes.   Meanwhile, there are just 3 days left to enter the magazine subscription giveaway, and only a tiny bit longer to take advantage of my $1 trial subscription offer – I will definitely be ending it on 27 January when I begin to upload the February issue. So, if you were thinking about trying the Bustle & Sew Magazine, please don’t delay, as I won’t be repeating this trial offer in the near future. 


The Daisy Knot Bag is definitely going to become a favorite! I love the style! As always, I’m anxiously awaiting the next ezine issue!
