I’m in Homespun Magazine

One of the most exciting things I’ve done this year (apart from having Elodie of course) was to organise and host the Don’t Look Now workshop in July. And it was so much fun I immediately told Kellie I wanted to do it again….or maybe I committed to doing it again before we actually had the weekend. I can’t remember now but it was something crazy like that.

I hadn’t met a lot of the students in real life but everyone was so enthuisiastic and hard working all weekend and friendships were quickly made. And one of those lovely students was the editor of Homespun magazine, Catherine Sanchez. We were sitting near each other over the weekend and she kept us entertained with her little comments the whole weekend.
pregnant me
I look huge. Remember I was pregnant, people!
And it’s now so lovely to see a wrap up of the weekend in the latest Homespun issue for November. Mind you I wish I could put a photo of myself looking less pregnant or tired, or maybe it’s because I’m standing next to someone as pretty as Kellie. But anyway, thank you Catherine for the great article, thank you again Kellie for agreeing to come and do a workshop for me (because I had no experience in that department and was learning as I was went along) and of course to all the gorgeous students who came and made it the weekend that it was. It must have been great because I’m doing it all over again next year (more details to come once I’ve started planning it).
the article
You’ll find the article in the latest Homespun issue which is the Special Collectors Edition 10th Birthday Celebration Issue and there are some gorgeous patterns in there too. My favourite is the sweet cushion by Lisa of A Spoonful of Sugar.
