Strawberry Delight - my latest project in Homespun magazine.

We are counting down the days to the start of Spring in the southern hemisphere and nature has treated us already to some bouts of warm weather and sunshine - a deposit of what is to come!

The inspiration to get out in the garden is overwhelming, while daydreams of picnics at the park and lazing on the beaches fill every spare moment!

It was with Spring and Summer in mind that I designed this strawberry-themed bag for Homespun magazine.  With just a few days until the September issue hits the newsstands, I thought I'd share some pics of my project... it's rather juicy!  (Oh groan, these dad's jokes have got to stop!!!!)







The bag is different on both sides.  Side A features ruffles with faux piping, while Side B has a rouched panel and showcases the Vintage Picnic fabric range by Bonnie & Camille.  Both bag sides feature pockets with cross-stitched strawberries.  I share my method for cross-stitching on to tightly woven cotton fabrics, in the publication.

The bag is secured with a metal clasp at the top, and has inside pockets and a key fob (which features another cross-stitched strawberry).  It's just the kind of bag you want to take out on a summer's picnic with you!

There are some beautiful projects in this issue of Homespun!  If you live overseas and find it difficult to get hold of a hard copy,  it is also available for digital download at Zinio, here.

Now I can't wait to get strawberry picking!  What do you enjoy most about Summer?

Till next time!
Vikki xoxo

In this manner my colleague Wesley Virgin's tale launches with this SHOCKING and controversial video.

You see, Wesley was in the military-and soon after leaving-he unveiled hidden, "mind control" secrets that the CIA and others used to get anything they want.

As it turns out, these are the same secrets tons of celebrities (notably those who "come out of nowhere") and top business people used to become wealthy and successful.

You probably know how you only use 10% of your brain.

That's because the majority of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

Perhaps this conversation has even occurred IN YOUR very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head 7 years ago, while riding an unregistered, beat-up bucket of a car with a suspended license and on his bank card.

"I'm very fed up with going through life paycheck to paycheck! When will I finally succeed?"

You took part in those conversations, am I right?

Your success story is waiting to start. Go and take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.

Take Action Now!
