Save the date

I am very excited. I have fulfilled a dream to be a calendar girl.

Yes, really! I am Miss 25 March 2010.

Would you like to take a peek?

Oh wait .... no .... before you panic and run screaming from the room ...



... its not that kind of calendar!



My gratitude to editor Megan Smith for including my project in the 2010 Sewing Calendar. Just quietly, I'm very excited seeing my name in print for the first time!

Megan has produced a beautiful collection of more than 100 sewing patterns. If you enjoy reading sewing blogs, you will recognise contributors such as The Long Thread, Elsie Marley, Skip To My Lou, Pink Chalk Studio, Rachel Rabbit and many more.

Each project is accompanied by beautiful photographs and there are terrific instructions. There's enough to keep you busy for a whole year!
