Cotton & Thyme


My SpringTime Bag pattern can now be found in the Taiwanese quarterly quilting book: Cotton Life no.5! This one announces that SPRING has finally arrived with all the daffodil and tulip colours and flower prints galore!

Cotton Life is written in Chinese but includes photos for each step of every project so it very easy to follow. All measurements are in centimetres and includes full-size templates. Each issue includes 28-32 projects including accessories, clothing, housewares, bags, quilts and much more!


I was surprised to see my name on the front cover and I love how they designed my page! Take a sneak peek inside before you purchase a copy from my SHOP.

Here is a closer look at all the details. There is a flowerpot pocket on the front of the bag...


and a little birdie on the back...

and the pattern for the Butterfly Keychain is included!


The bag is also fully reversible if you decide that you want to go plain.

I was out in the sunshine all day yesterday preparing the gardens and planting early veggies. All of my window sills are full of herb, veggie & squash seedlings. Did I mention that "my time (thyme) is up"?!?! Enjoy your SpringTime!

Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)

    honey, it's great to see their work printed in a quality magazine and recognized. I am a huge fan of his art and I am very happy for you. I wish to see many works published. Always remember you telling me to get on etsy and sell my stuff. I'm still not on etsy, but I am producing and selling quite well. Have you ever been in my blog? Come see it and feel somewhat responsible because he gave me strength and affection.
    kisses

  32. En alguna parte vi tu morralito y te perdi la pista pero se me quedo muy grabado. Como no tenia ni patrones lo hice al tanteo. Ahora que lo veo, confirmo que esta precioso, lo volvere a hacer aunque no tenga el tutorial porque cotton life no llega a Mexico. Carmen
