my little house

The new Sew Somerset came in the mail today! I have 3 different things in it!! How exciting! It never ceases to amaze me when they choose my work :) Click on the images for larger, readable sizes. And make sure that you go right out and buy a copy! In Toronto, make sure you buy it at Bizzy B's (better make sure that you call and reserve a copy!)(416-203-0433).

On page 14 is a fabric heart pin. It looks waaayyyy better in person.On page 97 is one of my Secret Garden tags --- similar ones have been on my blog before --- I really love them -- so I had to share. I love how it coordinates so well with Frieda Oxenham's work on the same page -- and I feel so honoured to be on the same page as Frieda -- her work is AMAZING! And finally on page 114 is my little house. I really did make this during all of the excitement of buying a house. I love this collage -- I can't wait until it comes home so I can frame it and hang it on my wall! We have decided to paint our front door black -- so my combo of many whites and black is really happening -- I just need those touches of red. How feng shui of me.........

Congratulations Martha and being published again!!!! I can see why....just love your fabric art! You are a real talent! I am lucky enough to have one of your beautiful secret garden bird tags. It hangs with pride from a key on my sideboard.

I will have to rush off and order my new copy of Sew Somerset (for some reason I thought it was a one off publication).

Okay, I'll just have to buy this issue! It always excites me when I see your pieces in magazines, Martha. And you shouldn't be surprised to be published!! Your work is outstanding and oh so inspiring. I only wish I could sew like you do. Your house is shaping up, I see! Sorry I haven't visited in much too long.
