A house in the Country is published

What a delight it was this morning to have the mailman deliver this month’s issue of Creating Country Threads – and to see my design, “A house in the Country” published within its pages!

This simple framed stitchery makes use of a house button and was designed some time ago as part of a swap I did with the lovely Lizzie from A house in the Country. If you’re interested, you can see what I gifted Lizzie here, and what Lizzie gifted me here!


This issue (Vol 10 no 12) also features pretty projects from two of my treasured friends, Jenny and Cheryl. If you live in Australia – here’s what to look out for in your newsagents:

While I was uploading photos on to www.picnik.com (a great free site for editing your photos!) I decided to have a little play with some of the special effects and chose a ‘soft focus’ to zoom in on the button! Isn’t this cool?

I had planned to do a post on ‘Treasure Tuesday’ today… but most of my treasures are all hidden away! Hmmm… that tells me something – maybe my treasures should actually be on display?!! It also tells me I need to re-organise my house! LOL


Until next time – happy stitching!


Hugs! Vikki xx
