what's new, pussycat?
Well hello Sunday! Here's some news if you haven't seen me banging on about it on instagram or twitter....so remember I told you I was working for practical publishing and one of the things I was doing was helping out a bit with the quilty stuff for Love Sewing? That has just been released and the first issue is in UK stores right now, so pop along and buy it....and the other (BIGGER!) news is I have a new baby of my very own. I am now editor of a not yet released and still very much in production phase magazine called Quilt Now. The first issue will be out in July in the UK (I'm hoping for some worldwide distribution too, but I'll keep you posted on that as the time comes).
Quilt Now will be very much all about what we are up to as quilters today. It'll be full of patterns for quilts and quilty things as well as other fun projects. It'll showcase modern fabrics and if you already follow me anywhere and you like the same kinds of things as me, then you'll probably like it. Or at least I hope you will. If you're in the UK you can take advantage of the pre-launch subscription offer of the first 3 issues for £5, just click here and sign up. It's a direct debit deal, but if you don't like it or it's not for you, it's ok, you can cancel at any time - risk free. Although I hope you won't cancel, I hope you love it (but I also understand we can't buy all of the magazines every month, all of the time - not if we also want to buy fabric and other stuff like paying bills and feeding our families. Pesky families). There will also be a digital version. I'll be wittering on a lot about Quilt Now as the months go by so you'll possibly be very fed up with it by the time it comes out, but it's my baby, I have a magazine, I get to choose what's in it and how it looks and all of those crazily exciting things. It's pretty amazing and I'm so excited about it (obviously!)
And I am taking commissions for projects - you can email me and shoot me your ideas, I'd love to hear them!
Enough about that - and onto fabric...

I can't begin to tell you how badly I want this bundle from Sew Me A Song.
I'm rather fond of this one from Sew Fresh Fabrics too

Like this bundle of strawberries
Lots of new stuff at Elephant in My Handbag. Is it too early to be thinking about Christmas?
This new cotton lawn in stock at Fabric HQ makes me go all tingly
New dressmaking fabrics in at The Village Haberdashery too - including this amazing nani iro

I'm going to mention the C word again. There's a new Christmas section at Simply Solids. Just in case you wanted to be prepared and all.
I'm off now, before I get abuse hurled at me for the double Christmas mention!
