Don't you just love Rashida's I Heart line?
And when I received my 4 patterns, I noticed they came directly from the Dewberry familia. How awesome is that? He's one of my favorite designers, so I'll admit I'm a little bit of a starstruck nerd, lol!
And just to admit that I do crazy things for the sake of my blog sometimes, I'll tell you a little story. You see that reddish stain by his name? Well when I got the envelope I was all like, "This is so awesome! I've gotta save this and take a picture to show my readers!". But then an hour later when I was tearing through the house on a cleaning rampage, I tossed it in the trash right on top of a glob of marinara sauce. Five seconds later I realized what I'd done, and yanked it out. So yes, I went dumpster diving and cleaned trash-can-marinara off of an envelope for the sake of my blog, LOL!
P.S. As I was flipping through that copy of Stitch you see above, I realized my good friend Michelle has been holding out on me!!! I saw this really awesome felt table runner and paused to read more details, and lo and behold - there's Michelle's friggin name right there! In Stitch! She's a rock star! (and a much better secret keeper than I am, because in my excitement I definitely would have told some of my friends on the sly at the Summit, lol!)
As much as I love Stitch (it's my favorite crafty mag), I'm always a bit hesitant about the $14.99 price tag. But I can say this issue is definitely worth it! There are some really nice patterns in here, and Ayumi submitted an insanely cute (as always) sewing machine cover.
