The Mischief Maker (Published in Somerset Holidays & Celebrations)

Hello Everyone
Let me stay with Halloween for the time being to share with you  the amazing news of my Halloween article in the 2014 edition of Somerset Holidays & Celebrations.
I cannot begin to express how shocked I was when the Editor contacted me several months ago to say they wanted to publish a wall hanging as an article and for me to write the article.  Now, writing articles is extremely new to me, there have been two previous occasions for Sew Somerset and there is no doubt it filled me with trepidation at the prospect of writing this article  yet what a thrill to know they liked it so much, that is always the biggest surprise to me!
In the article I write about my childhood memories of Halloween as a child growing up in Scotland and also what inspired this wall hanging.
This photograph is deceiving as the wall hanging does not look exceptionally large, it looks as though it is a card, but it was about 12″ in length, approximately.
themischiefmakerAlso in this publication, in the Gallery section, a Valentine’s card and three Crafty Individuals pieces, two wall hangings and a hanging canvas.
For me, it is the greatest honour to be published by Stampington & co and something I never take for granted. Something else I don’t take for granted is your loyalty to my Blog and also your continuous support.

    Lynne, I’ve been following your work for some time now, always, ALWAYS love to see what you are up to. I also love nostalgic things, and using lace and odd tidbits in my work, so your work appeals to me on several levels! Congratulations on all your published works!
