I am honored to have my art on the cover – I just keep shaking my head in surprise and smiling.

As with each issue, the publisher does a amazing job photographing and displaying the art.

Inside this Winter 2016 issue of Sew Somerset not only will you find my stitched cards, but my book constructed of stitched fabric and paper is also featured.

The issue is packed full of stitched eye-candy and inspiration. Each featured project sparks a little idea in my head for something new I want to try or has me sketching an idea for a future art quilt.

The publisher, Stampington, has generously offered to send an issue to one lucky winner. I’ll be randomly selecting a winner on Monday, Dec 14th from comments to this blog post and the comments to my giveaway post on Instagram (which will be posted later today). Comment in both places for multiple chances to win. Note: This contest is open to US residents only.

In your comment, I’d like to know: have you tried sewing paper before and if no, are you inspired to give it a try now?

Sew Somerset

The latest issue of Sew Somerset is out and you’ll find a few of my projects inside.

My favorite part about new magazine articles being published is that I can finally share the art inside them. It’s hard to not share the projects when I create them and it takes 6 months or a year before I can tell anyone about them.

In the next week or so I will share photos of the art, but in the meantime, you can pick up a copy of the summer 2015 issue of Sew Somerset and see all of the fabulous stitched projects.
