Sew Somerset & More Jigsaw Pieces Received

Yesterday I received my complimentary copy of the new Stampington publication - Sew Somerset. I love the very bright and cheerful looking cover! A couple of pieces I sent in for a Somerset Studio theme were selected for this magazine (which is more like a book than a magazine really) which was really very lucky and a nice surprise too!! My pieces are based on sewing dried leaves to simple collages.

The magazine is going to be produced twice yearly and judging from the first issue it is going to be a terrific magazine with a range of articles and styles. I think it will appeal to a lot of people as there are so many of us who enjoy including sewing in mixed media projects (although it is not all mixed media - there are some art quilts and fabric articles as well).

I have also received the next two pieces in the Jigsaw swap - these ones are by the incredible Lexie Grady who always makes beautiful, highly detailed work and who is an absolute master of working small/tiny. I don't even want to send my pieces to her after seeing these wonderful creations on my theme of Vintage Dressmaking. The scan is a bit blurry due to the three dimensional aspects of the pieces but you can easily see how fabulous and classy they are.

I'm still beading and stitching my postcards and hoping to get to the various weekly challenge themes tomorrow night: Pirates for Think Monday - Think ATC; Autumn Colours for Wednesday Stamper, Vacation for Gothic Arches and Rust for Inchie Artists...
