Article in Inspirations 79

As usual the latest edition of Inspirations - the world's most beautiful embroidery magazine - are filled with an array of delicious embroidery projects covering a variety of styles and methods. 
I love the pink and green cover - it is my favourite* colour* combination! 


The other reason I really, really like it, is because there is an article on pg 10, I wrote about my African Flower Chain. It's already a year ago we took that trip around South Africa. I can't believe how time flies! That icy cold day in early August when we left Pretoria (and had a very rare snowfall) feels like yesterday... 


And here we are, all settled in Australia, with many new friends and new stories to tell.

*One of the many great things about living in Australia now is that I can ignore the spell checker when it tries to tell me to omit the 'u' in favourite and colour. This is the way we spell it in South Africa and in Australia. Is it a southern hemisphere thing, I wonder?

No the u thing is uk English. The dropping of the u I think started in the u.s. as they tend to say words as they are spelt.

Thanks Susan. It must be our colonial heritage.

Thanks for pointing out the article. It is nice to see 'local talent' in print.
