It was Mr SUDs birthday on Sunday so we all went out to dinner with his folks to celebrate. Later in the afternoon I had a conversation with Dad that went a bit like this:
Me: “Ah guess what Dad?! I had my profile published in Country Threads!”
Dad: “Ah that’s good – congratulations!”
Me, (overly excited): “Yeah I’m really chuffed! There were six pages, Dad! SIX pages!!!”
Dad: (cheeky glint in eye…) “Must have been a slow week for them!”
My Dad is very proud of me but never misses an opportunity for a little jibe! I love him for it! Don’t worry – I give as good as I get – I’m surprised I didn’t get a clip round the ear on New Years Eve when I started impersonating his gorgeous Scottish accent! “Ock aye Dad and d-y-wan-sa tatties wif ya haggis?”
Back to Country Threads – I’m delighted! I sent in a couple of new designs to be photographed…
‘I heart notes’ notebook cover, and…
‘Chloe’s Christening bag’. This design isn’t new – it’s about six years old, but I have never shown it before. A friend asked me to design and make a special gift for her granddaughter's christening, so I came up with this. A personalised keepsake bag for cards and gifts. It could be used for a baby’s first birthday, too.
The patterns are all underway for these projects and will be available in a few short weeks.
The design I contributed to Country Threads is named ‘A church in the Country’…
The pattern for this project and my profile can be found in the Appliqué Yearbook issue of Creating Country Threads, Vol 11 No 7.
Back soon with some more show and tell! Ooh – and don’t forget I’m still raffling my last published project – a handy sewing travel caddy that fits to your car’s sun visor –the raffle is open until Wednesday – go visit THIS post! :-)
Catch you soon! :-) Hugs! Vikki xx
