Oh joy, in print and in one of my favourite magazines, oh comely. I’ve been a subscriber since they ran a competition with Folksy back in September 2010 (one of the winners being the wonderfully talented Kirsty of Sixty One A), so I was thrilled to be asked if they could use my Rabbit Egg Cosies in their March edition. Now, if you haven’t heard of oh comely, Monica over at Quilt While You’re Ahead said ‘It’s like a really cool blog, but in print format’ which I think is spot on, even my uber cool Berliner husband, who noticed it laying around, commented on it so high praise indeed. They say of themselves:
‘oh comely is a magazine about people and their quirks and their creativity, rather than money and what it can buy.’
‘It’s a magazine that inspires people to be creative, talk to their neighbours and explore new things, rather than buy stuff or lose weight. Imagine sitting down with a cup of tea and a creative friend to hear all the strange things she says, all the curious stuff she does, and about the things she loves.’
You can buy a copy in WHSmith or subscribe here for £18 per year.
It did prompt a quick Rabbit Egg Cosy replenish as stock was very low. I’d forgotten how tricky they are to make, getting the ears to match is a nightmare as they sit on a curve and tend to spring out at jaunty opposing angles, however much I baste them.
The linen is also very difficult to iron, even with a damp cloth and lots of steam.
Then again, I am a bit of a perfectionist.
I have 2 egg cosies for giveaway, cute though they are these ones have wayward ears and I’d feel bad selling them. Just leave a comment, nothing more and I’ll pick two names out of the hat on Sunday 20th March, as always I’m happy to post Worldwide so this is open to everyone. Nice and simple 🙂
