Its not very often I get to show off.....but (edited)

look at this!!! Its me....well not me, one of my bags!! I have been bursting for ages to tell you all I was going to be in issue 9 of Sew Hip and I nearly gave it away a while ago with a sneak peek of this bag. But some how I managed to contain myself.....well not really I was going to post about this tomorrow but since a fellow blogger had spotted it and commented on my last post, I was beaming from ear to ear and just had to post about it.

They even asked for a little mug shot of me to stick me in with the featured contributors......**blush**

That's it my name is in 'proper' print now, look Mama I'm famous!! (Well almost) ;)

They took some awesome photo's of my bag, so thanks to the Sew Hip team for asking me to contribute to the magazine and doing it justice.

I cant wait to get it back, this is going to be my bag.....I don't normally keep any that I've made but this one is special.

I feel like skipping!!! La la la la........can you see my grin from there??? Next on my conquer list is "the book".
Just found out that this issue isn't on sale to the general public until 29th it was the subscribers that received theirs early :) My friend Andrea and I are off to a craft fair today!! Yippee, haven't been to one in ages. So that will be fun....rain rain go away come again another day.
