Ta Da! African Inspirations Notebook in STITCH magazine :-)

Even after all this time...

...I still feel very proud when I have an article published. :-)

My "African Inspirations" notebook project is on page 20 of the current issue (99) of STITCH.




I used some more of Empress Mills' wonderful Copper metallic thread...

...along with their Klona Cotton (Black) and some other bits too.

(They are SO useful!!)

The Khadi block came from Colourcraft...

...as did the Markal Paintstiks and stencil film.

I also feel privileged to be able to work with Empress and Colourcraft...

...they are both lovely family companies...

...and have warm, beating hearts.


They have both taken me into their folds...

...which is really nice for someone who has no immediate family left.

I'm quite happy to be adopted as a "second Mother" to Laura...

...and a "God-knows-what" to Charles!! :-o

(Something that's black and white and shuffles around in snow???....)


Feeling sentimental today....

Congratulations! Nice to have 'friends' to do business with -- much better than an anonymous 'business like' voice on the phone.
