Hello to you all!
I must confess to writing this post with more than a little excitement. I have been featured in the gorgeous Handmade Living magazine - yes, little old me!! Oh my goodness!!
I knew that there was going to be a little mention in the August edition, but the poor people in the magazine aisle of the supermarket didn't, and I think (according to my other half) I squealed rather loudly upon discovering The Page:
There's my painting!! Woo~hooo! :D
It was a really lovely surprise to see that, and a really lovely write up too. Also mentioned were my friend, designer Kirsty Elson, (you can just see pics behind my flash of her fab driftwood cottages there), and Nina who blogs about coastal living, over at Tabiboo. If you haven't had the chance to get your hands on this magazine yet, it's well worth it - there are some excellent projects of things to make and do. But don't let me spoil it - go out and grab yourself a copy!!
Oh ~ and if you like the artwork that was featured, you can bring a little piece of the coast into your home with your own seaside inspired print ~ signed, titled and gift wrapped...and you can get it here!
So, a couple of posts ago I promised you some crochet news; such as updates on the Japanese Flower scarf...
...which is almost (but not quite) finished! In fact, I'm wondering if to keep on adding and make a triangle style shawl, or just stop at 3 rows and have a long, wrappy type affair instead. I think the wool stash will have a major role in this decision as I don't want to be spending too much on lots of new yarn (as yummy as it is) so I guess it will stop when the wool runs out!
This is a rather short-ish post today, as I have much to do and so will be back again soon with some more art to share with you, and hopefully some WIP photos of the crochet shawl/wrap.
Thanks for dropping by today, and one more thing before I go - thank you very much to everyone who took advantage of the One Day Art Sale - I do hope your pictures have arrived with you safely, and that you're happy with them!
Right, I'm off - really!
Love to you
