I’ve been published, just a little bit! How to you get published a little bit? Here’s how it all came about.
Since my jewellery making muse is on the fritz I’ve been indulging in some of my other creative pursuits, mostly crochet. A couple of weeks ago I discovered an Australian site, Yarnover, that sells Lily Sugar ‘n Cream cotton yarn and my favourite (but expensive) crochet hooks, Tulip Etimo. I received my order early last week and promptly went in search of a couple of patterns for the Sugar ‘n cream yarn.
I made this pretty crochet Kitty adapted from a pattern by Janette of the Green Dragonfly. Being me, I tweaked the pattern to include a full twisty tail, some extra shaping in the ears and around the face.
I also made these Christmas Coasters, just a set of plain granny squares and a star shaped hot pad for a teapot or coffee plunger.
I was so please by how they turned out I snapped a couple of photos and uploaded them to Instagram. Low and behold on Tuesday evening I received an email from Nina, a Production Assistant for the magazine, asking me if they could use my photo in their Show and Tell section of Gathered by Mollie Makes. I happily said yes, without even checking which photo!
I downloaded the magazine on Saturday and here she is… My Pretty KittyCat lifted right off the iPad.
I still have one or two embellishments to add, a butterfly for her tail and a heart shaped pocked with flowers. If you’d like to be featured in Gathered upload a picture to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and tag them #gatheredbymm.
