Christmas magazines, projects, and profiles!

The month of October has started out as a very exciting one for me!  Christmas has come two months early in the SUDs household… how about yours?  Are Santa’s sleigh bells beginning to jingle in your heart?  Mine is playing a merry tune!

As many of you already know – Christmas is my favourite theme to design and create for.  So I was over the moon when Jenny of Elefantz invited me over to play in the Elefantz Home bumper Christmas issue!  We chatted about past, present and future, dreams, goals and inspiration… and maybe a virtual cup of eggnog was enjoyed in the process!

You can find my ‘Snow Cottage’ stitchery pattern in Jenny’s magazine this month together with so many wonderful projects for Christmas and gift-giving.  Pop on over here to see exactly what’s inside and to either subscribe or purchase an individual issue.

Ever wondered what a Christmas profile looks like?

He he… I couldn’t resist!  (I know, I’m a dag!)  But I have been profiled in this month’s Christmas issue of Inspiring Country Threads, as well.  (Vol 14 No 7)

So you will find me chatting within these pages too – what a natter box!

But I have been sewing as well as chatting, and contributed this ‘Party in a Pear’ Christmas ornament to the issue, it was such fun to make and only takes a few hours!


As October is my bumper Christmas month, I thought I’d offer my ‘Red Robin Kisses’ pattern as a free gift with any purchase from my Craftsy store

Just drop me an email when you have made a purchase and I’ll send you your pattern!

What kind of crafts do you most enjoy making for Christmas?  Ornaments, quilts, gifts, soft furnishings?  I’d love to know!

Till next time!

You crack me up hun. Absolutely loving your wee Christmas house, it is so sweet, and as for your Partridge ornament it is beautiful. I do not believe you have only started on christmas now, knowing you as I do I would imagine you haven't finished last year's celebrating-just joking lovey. You are such a clever chook with your published articles. xx
