Well it's fun news about Cathy and me and Audrey & Maude. After reviewing Cathy's adorable Poppy and her Puppies in Issue 1 of the new UK mag Sew Hip we were asked to provide a couple of exclusive patterns as well.
In Issue 2 you will find Flirty Florence!
And in Issue 3 you will find Henrietta the Hippo!
I love all her angles!
They even put us here!
Which we had a fair old giggle about. And just so you know, that's Cathy on the right!
Now, onto the work in progress pics!
I finally finished the top of Chloe's quilt!
I know it will take another very long time to quilt but at least the design part is finished.
And it looks nice and vintagey which was what I was after. More importantly - she loves it!
And this photo is for Leslie.
I am knitting a lovely cardigan that I found via this fabulous girl. Katie is always making lots of lovely knitted stuff and inspired me to get the needles out again. She's not bad at the old quilting either - check out her latest couple of completed projects - gorgeous!!
I love this design and I already had just the right amount of wool in one of my favourite colours ready and waiting.
Hopefully it might be done in time for the cold weather.
It's our last week of school holidays and then I can get stuck into all my projects.
I have some work for another more local magazine to get done and my latest Four Seasons quilt swap to complete.
I also have all sorts of new patterns drawn up and hopefully will have some of them ready for the upcoming Melbourne Stitches and Craft Show. Cathy and I will be doing our applique canvas classes for the kids again which will be fun. And this year it has changed venue and is being put together by these fabulous people so I can't wait. Of course there will also be lots of other great crafty bloggers there so if you live anywhere near it's a great opportunity to meet them and all sorts of other fantastic retailers.
This week's weather is expected to be the hottest it has been in 100 years! 40 deg (104f) and above for four days - eeeew. Sounds like hiding inside and sewing weather to me!
