This is another thing I had been itching to share with
you! I can't believe how long I waited to post this!
Have you checked out the current issue of Stitch?
It's been about a month since this became available
on the bookstands, so you might have heard about
this a lot by now, but I still want to talk about it :)
This issue is, once again, packed with lots of
unique and fun projects that make me want to go
sit at my sewing table and start playing with my fabrics
right away. Did you know that, starting with this issue,
Stitch became a 'quarterly' magazine from a 'biannual'
magazine due to its growing popularity?!
I'm really glad that Stitch has been making lots
of progress to make this awesome magazine available
to many readers. For example...
1) We can now sign up for
Auto-ship program to receive this magazine
at a discounted price. (Free shipping within the US,
$5 international shipping.)
2) The mag became available for digital downloads here!
(Past issues are available too!)
3) A purchase of an individual project in
the past issues became available here.
They are now working on this - we'll probably
see more projects available for individual purchase soon :)
I don't know how, but I seem to be still surviving
as a Stitch's project contributor among such a creative bunch.
Coming up with projects for this magazine, making actual
projects, seeing them in actual magazines, and
hearing feedback.. each and every step has been
a bit intimidating, but I can't describe how happy
I feel about being able to experience all this too.
Stitch editors as well as many readers have been
very supportive of my work and I can't thank them (and you!) enough.
This is a hot pad with chipmunk applique on.
Maybe letting this cute guy warm you up
isn't such a bad idea.. :)
Another project of mine featured in this issue
is the set of this kitchen towels! (Next to
my project is a felt pillow by Lisa that
made the cover of this issue! I love the pillow!)
Making these was a lot of fun!
Of course you can find patterns for all the
applique in the magazine issue. I *might* have
some super exciting news about these towels
later, maybe in a few months... :D
Thank you for stopping by :)
I hope you have a great week!!
