The old saying "it doesn't rain but it pours" applies here as both a book and calendar which I've had published projects in have arrived over the past week.
The book "Pretty Little Presents" you've probably read about before (Belinda and Lisa are the other Aussie girls included in the book). My copy went AWOL in the post and the kind folks from Lark Books had to send me another one. As a result I'm very late on the scene and you'll have to allow me my 15 minutes of fame, I'm afraid!
My project "Nesting Instinct" is a baby gift in the form of a little tote with Mum and baby bird softies or "taggies", as I originally called them. They have ribbon tag legs and the Mum fits in the tote with the baby bird hanging as a little charm from the tote handle. Here we are:
Pages are tricky to photograph well, so here's one of my original snaps:
The other publication is the "2010 Sewing Calendar". I was approached by the editor and asked whether she could include my "Sew Simple Needle Case" and of course I said yes. I am (quite fittingly) "Miss January 26" (Australia Day).
The calendar has great projects from a multitude of bloggers. There are some old faves and many which will be new to you as they were to me.
