I was so excited the other day to go and seek out and buy issue 64 of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine…which features my project to make your own fuzzy llama! You’ll find a materials guide, photos and step by step instructions to make this super cute soft toy for yourself. I made two versions for this feature; a cuddly, cream woolly version and a pale pink, long haired one. Which is your favourite? If you do make one, and you’re on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, please do post a picture and tag me! Search me out using, ‘The Whistling Cowgirl’ or @whistlincowgirl on Twitter. Meantime, here’s a couple of snaps of the issue….
I’ve been thinking I need to pay this site some attention. It does tend to get neglected in favour of my online shops, for instance. And so I think it needs to serve a different purpose, rather than feeling somehow like a kind of add on, an old friend you keep feeling bad about neglecting, when you’re really fond of them, actually. I think we need a new look, at least, and some serious thought put into what is needed from the site. So over the summer I’m going to brew up some ideas and see what I can come up with! In the meantime, here’s a pretty picture or two, and the promise of something just a little bit exciting coming up very soon!
See you back here soon, I hope! Lucy x
