I'm delighted to be featured again this year in Better Homes & Gardens' Christmas issue...available at news stands now.
This year's project is a gorgeous slow-stitched Christmas Cottage inspired by my European white Christmas last year and my love of the crisp, wintery goodness one just doesn't get to experience in Australia at Christmas.
The slow-stitched cottage kit contains decorative fabrics, threads, templates and instructions for creating a small free-standing house, based on an English country cottage. Unleash your creativity and your Christmas spirit as you embellish with seasonal motifs to truly make this project your own. This cute cottage makes a lovely gift, or hand-made touch to your seasonal home décor.

I'm also very chuffed to be on the cover of the Oct /Nov issue of Homespun magazine, with another wonderful slow-stitching project you can easily make with fabrics and embellishments from your own personal stash.
The Poppies & Pomegranates cushion requires very basic sewing skills, and better yet there's no zip to struggle with as it uses the overlapping flap or envelope method (like a pillowcase).
The step-by-step instructions are included in this month's issue available at news stands or online
