Review: Vignette Issue 2 (243)

Sew for Issue 2 you're in luck as it's pretty much just as great as Issue 1 with more recipes, tantalizing photos, and inspiration..She's gone and done it - made an awesome magazine...

Here's your preview, thread that looks like you could just take it off the page...

This Raspberry Crumble makes my mouth water..yummy!

More inspiring photos...this octagonal english paper piecing looks like an awesome project...ooooh I must remember to save a copy for myself this round :)

Until next time, stay happy, make a good recipe and be creative...Valerie


Review: Vignette Issue 1 (242)


As promised, here's my review of the Vignette Magazine by Leanne Beasley (remember she designed Journey of a Quilter)...I'm in LUV! I LUV the pictures, the colour saturation in the photos, the PHOTOS are amazing, the recipes, the full colours stitchery images, all of the projects and's my review and your preview. I've sold out of all of my copies so far so good as they say...more en route because YOU just can't get enough:)

How about curling up in this chair to do your stitching - looks perfectly comfortable for me and Tig!

this just says how I feel each and every day

Last but not least or should I say the main part of this mag is this incredible 16 part block of the month project starting from Issue 1. See Kathy's start in this recent blog post, Show off YOUR Stuff, she may just inspire you.

If you've read this magazine I'd love to hear your review and if you've started the block of the month, please send me some pics...I haven't decided if I want to start this now or next year Yikes...not sure what to do here as I can't possibly add another block of the month to my existing 5!!! Until next time stay happy, dry, and creative! Valerie


Vignette Magazine is coming... (216)

Sew I got this interesting email from Leanne Beasley...sound familiar? She's the amazing designer of Journey of a Quilter here's a pic for those of you who've missed this awesome block of the month we did in 2010.

This is the picture of Leanne's pattern front - can you say amazing?

Here's how our's turned out with the dupioni silks we incorporated - this project is still available by pattern only option you still get full access to our private blog postings, video tutorials and sew much more...

So now that I have your attention, Leanne's contacted me regarding carrying her brand new magazine called Vignette..."Vignette magazine is a quarterly visual delight filled with ideas for your creativity, your home, your garden, your kitchen, and much more! Issues 1-8 include the latest BOM pattern, 'Vignette In Stitches'.

She's offering a free block of the month club program including her fabrics and through our shop we will likely tuck in a few of our dupioni silks here & there :)

So I'm asking YOU!! I've received numerous email regarding her magazine and if I'm going to be carrying it...I've started the process to bring it in and be the FIRST Canadian shoppe to carry it, would you be interested in this magazine and possibly her block of the month project? If so contact me or leave a comment and let me know and I'll add you to our growing list:)

Until next time, stay happy and creative...Valerie
