If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you may already know this, because the digital version has been out for about a month, but I wanted to wait until I had a hard copy in my own two hands before blogging about it!
People ask if I knew about it, and the answer to that is no!
An email from Interweave’s Quilting Daily about a month ago had the cover and information about the magazine, when I clicked on the email… Shazzaam! was I excited to see that picture!
As always, this is an awesome magazine, chock full of awesome things to make.
They also have cookie recipes from the contributors! Logan and I shared our recipe for Molasses Crinkles, which is officially Santa’s favorite cookie. I can’t wait to try Lisa Chin’s nut cups, the recipe looks delicious!
I love Christmas, and always have lots of ideas of things to make for the holidays. Although lots of those ideas remain in my head, the submission deadline for this magazine always inspires me to make at least some of the things rattling around inside my brain! I’ve got three different projects in this issue:
First off, my Holiday Row Houses:
I love love LOVE how they photographed it – it’s kind of hard to see in this picture, but they’ve got some 2 dimensional trees made from white paper (or cardstock), I am TOTALLY using this idea come Christmas time!
I’ve got some really quick to make napkin rings, with a really cool way to make 3-d holly leaves:
And finally, a mantle scarf that was inspired by people who decorate by hanging beautiful glass balls in front of a window or fireplace…those would last about 3 hours in my house, but this fabric version is kid and dog proof:
The folks at Interweave sent me an extra copy of the magazine, I’d love to share it with one of my blog readers…and to celebrate my cover gal status, I’m going to give away a set of hand dyed, jewel tone fat quarters – enough for you to make a set of row houses for yourself!
I’ll choose a winner this Sunday, the 23rd, and announce it next Monday. There are two ways to enter:
