Homemade with Love 2

Well it’s been a mad week!

I had a lovely time at the Knitting and Stitching show and met lots of lovely ladies trying new things. Spotted a few friends Rosemarie, Pat, Karen, Trudy and Marianne buying the place up and spent a few nights with my daughter Lo in London. Between us we managed to get all my workshop stock, trolley and all, up and down stairs and on and off of tubes, East to West and back again. Thank you Lo, what would I have done without you!

I did get to see the show, stitched a quilt block for Project Linus and made a few purchases of my own 🙂

Then on Friday Homemade with Love hit the news stands with my shoe clip/brooches and a double page feature that I’m very excited about. They have done a lovely job with the styling again. Those of you who were at the show will recognise the Grandmothers Flower garden brooch design! (on sale exclusively at WHSmith – UK and Barnes and Noble – US in a few weeks)

Everyone I’ve spoken to about this new magazine has been full of praise, saying how inspiring it is and what great value. I’m very honored to be included, well done Jane and team!

    If you do this again I’d like to see the film of you getting there with that trolly, that would be an artwork in itself.
