as seen in: Homespun Magazine



If you are a Homespun magazine reader you will see a nice mention of my Flora Needle Book pattern right there on page 20 of the October issue! Thanks very much, Janai! That's awesome!
(I should clarify that Homespun is an Australian publication, so you won't find it on the shelf in America. My apologies!)


I loved browsing through my copy. Homespun is substantially thick and chock-full of colorful photos and well-done DIY projects. I love the matte finish of the pages. Here's a random sampling:

Beautiful quilt!

Craft studio envy!


One of the features I really appreciate is this handy at-a-glance spread with photos of all of the included projects and their page numbers. Well done, Homespun! (Hey, look, I actually have on nail polish in these photos. Are you impressed? It isn't Pinterest-worthy striped or polka dotted or spangled or the ubiquitous ombre - but it is nail polish.)

  3. Very cool! Congrats! I agree with Grandma G - it's a well deserved honor. Your needle books are so beautiful! And to think I have a hand sewn original. Wonder what it'll be worth in a few years now that you've hit the big time... ;)

    1. Robyn, thank you and for real, you could probably get, like, at least four dollars for yours. You could buy a frothy coffee with the proceeds! :-) With a double shot.

  5. So happy to see the needle books recognized like this! Oh, and I noticed the nail polish right away, but I thought it was my imagination. Very tasteful choice.

    1. Shelly, :-) Thanks, I love that polish. It's iridescent and subtle, so you can't tell right away that it's a chipped mess. ha.

    1. Mama Pea, it's an Australian publication, so unfortunately hard to find in the states.
