Gathering Threads

Chocolates, anyone?

I gave up my dreams of modelling when at the age of ten or so, when I realized that my parents, at 5’6 and 5’2 respectively probably weren’t going to be the ideal genetic candidates for the next Claudia Schiffer.  I mean, heck, my brother’s the tallest living member of my family and he’s not much above 5’8!   I regrouped, reexamined my career goals and ended up in fine arts instead.  It was a good choice and I love what I do.

But since I’ve begun writing and publishing my designs, I’ve been able to dust off a few old dreams.  The proof?  Well, check out the cover of the current issue of Crafts ‘n Things.

The pillow?  That warm, squishy, non-calorific, totally adorable Valentine’s Day pillow?

I made it.

And it’s on the cover.

The cover.  Hoorah!

My next stop?  Paris, Milan, London, dahling.  And Claudia Schiffer?  Well she’d better get use to looking over her shoulder, ’cause here I (or my cover pillow) come.  🙂
