"I'm a star in New York, I'm a star in LA…"

…well, not quite, but the fame is definitely going to my head. What fame? Oh, just the simple matter of me being the featured blogger in Sew Magazine's "Blog of the Month" slot!!! YES!!!!! My blog is featured in a national magazine!!


Way back in February I was contacted by Sew Magazine asking if they could feature me in their regular "Blog of the Month" slot. You can't imagine how thrilled and flattered I was to be asked! The fact that they'd found my blog and liked it enough to want to feature it really meant a lot to me.


They chose a few pictures from my blog and asked me to answer a few questions. Months went by and last week they finally confirmed I would be featured in the September issue, which is out today. I'm particularly pleased to be featured in this issue as it's their Vintage issue - hoorah! 


And it's a pretty good read this month, even if I am biased! There are interviews with Pearl Lowe and Cath Kidston (I'm in the same issue as Cath Kidston!!), a free Simplicity cushion pattern (endlessly useful), tons of links to vintage-style fabrics and notions and great tips on how to sew your own retro swimwear. Tons more information can be found on their website: www.sewmag.co.uk.

It's a real privilege to have been featured - thank you Sew Magazine! I'm going to enjoy every single one of my fifteen minutes of fame! x
