I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

I'M IN PRINT...Homespun Magazine!!!

Back in July I received my subscription for Homespun magazine on a Tuesday...
and ended up making the 3 little felt decorations above by Lenna Green in record time...
They were all ready by Saturday!!!
I emailed the magazine and told them I had done this!!!


Last week I received the latest edition of the magazine...and blow me down these little 'ornies' are on the Reader's Showcase page!!!
WOW...WOW...WOW!!!
I couldn't believe it!!!

Here's how they appeared in the mag...

I've not made too many items from a magazine but almost straight away I went through the thread box...the bits of felt and started almost straightaway!!!

I was only intending to make one for JoJo...but went on to make a Snowman for Mr Armchair...

Santa for JoJo...

Then I thought I might as well have one also!!!

The pic that appeared in the magazine...

And the fruit cake we had at the time to celebrate Christmas In July!!!
Now it's almost time to get baking again...
Planning to do some with JoJo next weekend!!!
Where did this year go???
