It was about a year ago when I tested the Sugar & Spice Bag for Christine and then was sworn to secrecy until Christine's bag was published in the Australian Homespun Magazine. I had to wait nearly 7 months until I was able to blog about it HERE. I thought I was going to bust a gut waiting to tell everyone about it LOLL. There was a lot of interest in the bag but then had to wait another 2 months for the pattern to be ready for sale at Christine's online shop HERE.
During this time I was approached by Homespun Magazine asking if they could use my Sugar & Spice bag photo and could I also write something about the designer's pattern. I was over the moon to do it and last month, one year after this all started, my bag photo was published in Homespun Magazine. Not exactly fame and fortune or even a front page spread LOLL but for a small blogger like me I feel like a celebrity now. LOL
My dear bloggy friend Daryl at Patchouli-moon-studio saw my bag in the magazine and recognized it so she very kindly sent me a photo of the magazine and the page my bag was published in so that I could blog about it. Thanks Daryl. Christine has very kindly posted the magazine to me and I'm eagerly waiting for it to arrive. I hope it doesn't get lost, this is a busy time of the year.
Here's a close up of what I wrote.
A big thank you to Christine for having me as one of her testers, thanks to Australian Homespun Magazine for making feel like a celebrity and thanks to Daryl for think of me and sending me these photos.
Now I need to get my feet firmly back on the ground and start doing some more sewing. LOLLL
