Hoop-de-doo-de-doo news...

Hi folks...I'm feeling very very hoop-de-doo-de-doo this morning and it's all thanks to my favourite Fiskars birdie...I love this little guy and use him at every opportunity...
you may remember way back in May...I was recovering from a memorable trip to Hobbycraft...doing battle with numerous ticket machines...replacing a flat tyre before I could get out of the car park and head home with the necessary purchases to make a start on a great big 10 project Fiskars Christmas Marathon commission...

but it's not hard to feel inspired when you're working with great products and before you know they're all done and ready to be mailed to Practical Publishing to feature in the 2014...
and woohoo was I excited excited to see that my Christmas Wreath featuring my favourite birdie made the cover...a hoop-de-doo-de-doo moment indeedy...can this wrinkly old crafter now add COVER GIRL to her CV...I wonder.
on sale today in selected craft stores...newsagents...supermarkets and the More Mags website...I can't wait to get my copy because it was so long ago that I can't for the life of me remember what the rest of the projects look like. A very big thank you to the Editor of Simply Homemade Diane Grimshaw for inviting me to take part and to Fiskars for letting me play with all their fabulous products but I fear I may need to lie down in a darkened room because I've got even more mega exciting news to share with you soon.
Hugs Kath xxx
