Coming home is good.
Coming home to a lovely surprise is great!
Since I just love sitting down with my sewing machine and
a few scraps of fabric and odd vintage books pages - it's
just always a giggle when I find that some of those little
concoctions end up on the pages of one of the Somerset
publications. Amanda Nolen, the editor at Sew Somerset,
sent me the preview of this little group of pieces which will
be featured in the upcoming Summer 2009 issue.
The article, "Scraps of a Lost Language," was also written by moi.
I always find that part to be a bit challenging. They want something
which speaks of my inspiration and detailed instructions.
All I really need to say is :
1. Sit down with a bunch of junk.
2. Stitch it together.
