I still get my bi-monthly pamphlet of Ads, blank pages and missing pattern pieces, for things I don't ever want to make, but I won't be renewing, despite the rare smattering of friends, those diamonds in the rough, who have graced its pages!
One of the contributors to issue One was the amazing Sara of Sew Sweetness, she made a bag...
...not any old bag, one that had me swooning the minute I saw it!
So can you imagine how I felt, when I discovered this complete and utter beauty waiting on the doorstep when I got home from work today...
|Honestly it is that vibrant - it was a grey day and these pics are tinker-free!|
Thank goodness I knew it was coming, otherwise I would have probably had a heart-attack!
The Conversation Bag had been finally returned to Sara after a tussle in which I provided a little UK-based muscle; I am the self-proclaimed Jason Statham of quilting; and then after a visit to Sewing Summit, a road trip to end all road trips with this lovely lady and the other one, thanks Kat Cam; it got over its jet-lag in Glasgow, and has now come home to me!!!
Sara is so wonderful, talented and frustratingly pretty, we all know that, but she is also so generous and kind hearted; I really can't thank you enough Sara, and I shall show it off with pride xxx
And so, moving on seamlessly, almost as if I had planned it, with that HUGE gap in the market for a quality, reliable, trustworthy modern UK quilting magazine, what are we all to do?
Look no further than here, that's what!
Kerry aka PennyDog (that's Kerry not Kerrie!!!) is hoping to raise the funds to fill that gap; she is doing this by selling subscriptions and advertising for a March 2013 launch.
Please have a look at the video, have a read of Kerry's bio and do what feels right ;) I did.
Should she, perish the thought, not reach her target of £5,000 by the end of the year, all monies will be refunded; so what have you got to lose!?
What goes around, comes around my friends, what goes around, comes around xxx
