In a real paper magazine no less! And I’ve been sitting on this blog post for months.
Back in June, I was contacted by the editor of Love Sewing UK, who was interested in publishing my elephant head sewing pattern in an issue.
I was at the airport when I received her email, already wound up on sleep deprivation to catch an early flight to my favourite province for a large family reunion. On a side note: Nobody gets more excited than I do to visit Nova Scotia; when I’m there, I breathe as deeply as possible to take it’s essence with me; I gaze intently at the landscape, determined to keep the lupins and the shorelines and the heavy forest in my mind; I small talk with strangers like I’d lived there all my life; and I leave the province feeling like I’m returning to my own Purgatory, aka Ontario.
Anyway, you can imagine the silly noise I let out about the possibility of getting published.
I had a bit of work to do, tidying up the sewing instructions, re-shooting the pictures, etc. But I got it all done in time, and the issue that I’m in goes out on the racks today!
Here’s the much higher quality picture that appears in Love Sewing UK:
