I've been Published in Sew Beautiful Magazine!




It's hard to believe that my journey in heirloom sewing and smocking has culminated so wonderfully five years since I first re-discovered my love of needlework. No matter how much I have learned throughout the years (and that would be well over 1/2 a century), I still learn new things every day. You can imagine, therefore, how thrilled I am and how honored I feel to have one of my little bishops featured in Sew Beautiful Magazine's Spring 2014 Issue, #154. Nothing, nothing at all could have made my heart sing more than seeing this adorable little model wearing a piece of my work!


What an infectious smile!!


Those gorgeous eye-lashes!!!

On a very sad note, however, Sew Beautiful Magazine will no longer be issued after the Fall issue this year. Back issues are still available and I can't emphasize enough what a wealth of information they all contain for fine sewers and embroiders everywhere.  Please pick up a copy at your local news-stand or craft store and let the publishers know how valuable their work in heirloom sewing and smocking would be for future generations to come!
