Bit of limelight...

My, my, my...!

Feeling pretty lucky and excited with not one - no siree, but two features in print this month!

Both beautiful mags to the touch & eye...

Mollie Makes...
Mollie Makes

"Living and loving handmade" makes it right up my street, add to that "making, collecting, thrifting, crafting" and I'm hooked. If you're on Twitter, Facebook or follow blogs the chances are you will have heard of it!

It's a UK mag but available overseas too. It can be hard to get hold of outside old Blighty, but fear not, for they sell the digital version online.

Oh, and you've got to check out this cute video they made.

I have to say I didn't know about Artful Blogging before this feature, but what a beautiful magazine!
There are no ads so you get well over a hundred pages of great content, as the title suggests, all about inspiring blogs. This issue also features Holly from Decor8 no less, and many, many other talented people.

I'm still pinching myself, I can't quite believe how it's happened but it's bloody awesome! How many pages all to myself?? :))

This one is a US mag, but you can also get hold of it in other countries, try here to get your hands on a copy.

A huuuge thank you to both magazines for featuring lil' ol' me.

Well, I think I need a cuppa after all this excitement.

Well, I'm so proud of you! And to think I have your 'I Love My Bed' hoop right by my bed and look at it lovingly every, single day! Good for you! I'm very excited for you - and me!

I just came across you from Artful blogging and wow, what a lovely site you have here. Love the style of art you do with fabric. And you live in the best place in the world perhaps--DEvon!

I hope you got ahold of your own issue btw. This issue is really great--wonderful graphic design to complement the sites listed.

I want that Molly Makes mag too. LO. it must be the jammie dodger featured.

found you in Artful Blogging...love your textile doodles and lovely blog!!

Kim Franklin said...

I found your blog from the Artful Blogger as well... and I have actually found your work on Etsy before that, I love the bright playful colors you use in your work as well as the simple style you have that shows heartfelt and handmade, which is hard to come by... keep up the great work and much congrats on the two features you deserved it!

- Much love, Kim

Ton blog est vraiment beau!

Knitting is a wonderful thing! said...

I found you today when I was flipping thru the Artful Blogging mag at the bookstore. I fell in love with your work. It truly is the kind of stuff that makes me smile. Congrats on the other story in Molly Makes. I'm pretty sure I've read this once or twice at a US bookstore. I like that we get our hands on overseas publications. Now only if we can keep at least one bookstore open in our area, I'd be really happy.
