Waiting Waxwings

It’s finished and out of the wash!


Back (a vintage sheet with horses on that I found in a tiny shop in Brick Lane, East London- I thought the colours worked well even if it was a strange subject choice!):


I’ve called it Waiting Waxwings, because on two occasions I had to wait for supplies to finish it. Firstly I had to wait for some Kona Aloe to finish the very last border- I was 5″ x 18″ short to completing the top. Then I ran out of the exact shade of yellow I was using for the quilting and had to wait for 3 more spools of that to come too as I hadn’t planned for it to be so intensive- but I do love it!

Size – 56″ x 62″
Focus Fabric – Birds and Berries by Lauren and Jessi Jung
Kona colours – Corn Yellow and Aloe
Batting – Fleece interlining for curtains from the local curtain shop which goes nice and crinkly!
Quilting- Straight lines to frame it, traditional cross hatching in the centre and yellow paisley leaves around the inner border.

And it’s now in my Etsy shop.

When I was a lame teenager with the Internet and too much spare time on a Saturday afternoon, I had my own website which is long gone now. It was the days when most slightly nerdy teenagers had a Homestead or Geocities website and resided in /Soho or /TelevisionCity. In those days we used Bravenet to add all sorts of crap like guestbooks and counters, and Internet polls were one of them. So here’s a piece of nostalgia- if you could leave your vote below for the name you like best for the magazine, that would be excellent.

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey, the world’s leading questionnaire tool.

The plan is still underway and I’m looking at a May release for the magazine currently as it takes 3 months to potentially pitch to WHSmiths. You will be the first to know when I’ve decided the necessary Kickstarter goal and I’ve got the ball rolling.
