My Creative Space

The thing with floods is you get lots of inside things done. Like almost overdue wholesale orders. Two bears and 12 rattles.

I always feel a bit bad when I put them in the bag to post, like I should put airholes in it or something.... 
 My embroidery poem cushion was on the front page of etsy twice the other day which meant I got lots of hits and now have two of them to make. The always sell in twos. Always.

This is issue 2 of Mollie Makes a new UK magazine that you would have seen around blogland. My cushions are in but I cannot show you the page as they kindly send it to me as a PDF and blogger does not like pdfs. They featured this cushion.

***** Thank you Susie for making the below a jpg so I could show you!!and also thankyou to Nic yesterday who tried to help me but I am a bit crap with stuff like this *****




I DESPERATELY want to get my hands on a copy but do not want to subsrcibe to it- for about $100. I also don't want the digitial version which I know you can download.  If ANYONE wants to pick me up a copy of issue 2  if they see it not only will I be eternally grateful I will pay for their issue 2 as well AND of course the postage to get it here, and will also provide chocolate of thanks.... *and a new car... a holiday to the Carribean....

    Still trying to get a copy of the mag here - they are supposed to have them at a shop here. But apparently they sent them back after receiving them as thought no one would want them. Didn't even put them out to see!! unbelievable...!

  12. I love that they called your cushions a family. I love how much it stands out on that page. I love that pocture of the toys looking up at you out of their box and I love that despite the rain being crappy, at least you got your orders done.

  13. I just can't believe the extent of this rain... has there ever been a La Nina cycle like this before? Not that I can remember. Glad that you are turning lemons into lemonade and absolutely LOVE the gorgeous things you're making Cath. They have so much personality :) Congrats on your feature too - how cool is that?! Hope you get a copy. Kx

  16. Wow, congrats on your press. I'm not at all surprised, they are fantastic. So so hard to choose a favorite.
    And also love your maternal instinct for your bears and rattles… look at their little faces, so chilled, they don't mind a bit!

    ps. Thanks for your lovely comment on my foxy brooch, I've only just seen it, I keep forgetting I have a Flickr account. : )

    The more time I spend in blogland the more I think to myself "Bloggers are a nice lot".

  20. Hi there. I was flicking through the issue pictured in the newsagents (WHSmith) today. Let me know if you want me to get a copy and post it to you. I'm an Aussie hanging out in the UK for a while and I know how difficult and expensive it is too get hold of some things back home. Happy to help. :-)
