my pattern is a cover model


My pattern made the cover of Stitch!

I've never seen a more attractive cover model in all my life. (Except for the gratuitous airbrushing done around its cellulite. That needed some covering up!)

I felt like the process of making this pattern was so much work. It was even more so than the several others that I've done for Stitch. I had it all planned out, but the majority of work in constructing it fell during my holiday show season this past fall. Talk about being SO stressed out. The fabric took forever to get to me, and I wasn't able to begin in until much later than I would have hoped. But, even so, it was a project that turned out even better than I had envisioned it when I first started. Getting to that point of being finished and pleased with the result just wasn't as direct as I would have liked it to be.

On the cover!

So I think that's what makes this feel so wonderful. Getting to the end result was tougher than I thought it would be, but sticking with it even when it drove me to tears was very much worth it.

Also, I'm sorry to those kids I scared in Barnes and Noble when I found this on the shelf. You'd jump up and down and pose in front of the rack if your pattern made the cover of your favorite magazine too, thankyouverymuch.

Congratulation.

Congratulations on the cover photo! That's a fabulous tote... I mean model. ;) I've been meaning to say "hi" on your blog before. I always love the projects you create for Stitch! (I'm a Stitch contributor, too.) I just linked to your blog from my newest post about this Summer issue.
