As I was cleaning my sewing room, I’ve been rounding as many things up that I can that all should be in the same place. This little stack is all magazines or books that we have published patterns in. I didn’t realize there were so many and this isn’t all of them as I have another small stack downstairs.
Long before Kelli and I were sewing quilts, I had this published….See the little scarecrow on the seed packet in the middle of the cover shot?
That’s mine. I designed the little guy back when “country” crafts were a big deal. Then there was even a short article about it written in newspaper….I thought I was pretty “big time”. Bahahahha!
Back then, Crafting Traditions was my favorite magazine. I loved the variety…there was crafts, to painted wood pieces, to crochet to quilting and more. I loved it!! That was back before internet.
The magazine had a contest to come up with scarecrow projects. I created this and submitted it. I was contacted right away and they said that they loved my idea and wanted to feature it in the magazine if I was willing to pull the project from the contest. I did. I was so honored.
A blog reader said I’d likely have fun going through and sorting my sewing room as I’d unearth some treasures. I don’t know this was a treasure but I do know it was fun to see it again.
