Last week I finally got round to finishing my design for the 2013 Polka & Bloom calendar panels. It's a lot later than I had planned, but I was sorta busy with writing a book and then we went to Denmark etc etc. But with a bit of luck I'll get them next week. Fingers crossed! There's a wee sneak peek at the calendar up there.. I love it!
Tomorrow I'll tell you all about the main reason for going... Not to be secretive or anything, I'm just still sorta processing it... :-)
latest issue of &Stitches. It's out today! It's all about Scandinavia. Go check out the blog post about it - and find out how you can save a bit on the usual price.
Putting together an issue of &Stitches is both really rewarding - one of my favourite things is it gives me an excuse to contact stitchers I admire, and interview them about stitchy stuff. But putting it together is also a lot of work, people probably don't realise how much. I think I've probably put around 35-40 hours into editing photos, layout and everything else. Stitching a pattern for it!
But all the hard work is worth it because the end result is something to be proud of. That makes me very happy. A couple of long days also make me kinda sleepy so maybe I'll be having an early night! ;-)
