Homespun Brag

Yup, 'tis time for a shameless brag.


Almost this time last year I had the immense pleasure of receiving an email from Catherine Sanchez, the editor of Homespun magazine. Having seen my blog, she asked if I would be interested in designing something for the magazine. Um, YES!

Well, I had the latest issue (Vol 11.2) arrive on my doorstep the other day, and lookie what I found on page 133.



The quilt is titled "For these I give thanks," and features a number of stitcheries all based on things to be thankful for. I won't give too much away, as this is just a 'pre-release' sort of thing, as the quilt comes out next issue. It will be a web based project and Homespun is releasing it as a Stitch-a-long for 23 weeks.

So, it is all rather exciting!!

Hi Sam. I remember seeing a little peek of this in an earlier post you made. Your stitchery quilt looks lovely, and what a great idea to have the stitch-a-long. I'm hoping I'll get to join in on it. Kind regards, Bev
