My design has been published!!


I sent a photo off to Handmade back in November last year (after much pushing from my sister Anne and friends to just take a chance and do it!) asking if they'd be interested in putting it in their magazine and quickly got an email back asking me to send them the cushion and pattern as soon as I could so they could put it in this years mother's day issue.Of course I said yes while jumping up to do the happy dance LOL.
After many months waiting for the mother's day issue of handmade to hit the news stands it's finally arrived in my letterbox (Vol.27 No.11). So may I introduce with much flourish and drum roll dah dah dum dum......my cushion called "Notes to Mum" is now out there.Hope you like it?


I'm so happy I took the chance.I also wanted to thank my sister Anne for all her support,encouragement and proof reading my pattern for me.I'd also like to thank Vicki and Ondrea for all their encouragement as well.Thanks girls I couldn't have done it without all your help,love and support :)
