Autographs this way please!

Earlier in the year I was contacted by a journalist from a new UK sewing magazine. She asked whether I could answer some questions about my blog for a feature she was writing on sewing blogs.
The magazine is called "Sew" and low and behold I make an appearence in the second issue.



I'm in a feature called "Meet the Bloggers". The magazine states " They design, sew, and discover gorgeous things -and then write about them with wit, enthusiasm and stunning images. What's not to love?" I can't believe that I've been included in this description but no, I'm definately there.



If anyone has found their way here after seeing the feature in the magazine please do leave a comment to say "Hi".

I've started on my next quilt this week. It will be used as a throw for our living room. I'm not sure what the block is called but it's similar to a log cabin. I'm going for a scrappy look with each block being slightly different.



This is a sneak peek of the gift I'm making for the Christmas in July swap I'm participating in. I won't show much more incase my partner reads this.



I thought I'd show this picture of a poppy that self seeded in my garden. Unfortunately its beauty was fleeting as the flower only lasted a day but I'm glad to say this little buzzy bee seemed to enjoy visiting.



Bye for now, Maria.

Congratulations on being featurd in the magazine and I'm really overwhelmed with my menetion. Thank you so much!

I love the quilt/throw you're working on. There are some gorgeous fabrics in those blocks, but I don't think I know the flowery one that's on the outside edge of the block with Amy Butler's Dandelion fields in the centre? It's really pretty.... any chance you could put me out of my misery and tell what it is...pretty please!

Hey, found you from Sew also. Did you get sent a copy? There is a rather cute hexagon patchwork project for a pencil and notebook holder in there as well.
