Inspiring magazines in WHSmiths!

I nipped into WHSmiths while doing the shopping this morning and found these.

I love Inspirations and enjoy the rich pages of wonderful things I just haven't got the time to make - but might do one day - and I am looking forward to sitting down and having a long luxurious browse through it's pages. The other two I bought for the quilts inside which gave me ideas for the "Challenge" quilt in the forthcoming show in June.

The Challenge is "Wales" as this year we will be based at St. David's School for Girls and I would love to adapt the pages shown to create a Boutis quilt with a Welsh Dragon instead of a Chineses one - Yes, there is a difference! - and maybe change the Hares for Dragons. What do you think?

So many ideas so little time...

Yes -- change the hares for dragons! Let's see it! Yeah, so much inspiration, so little time....

Back again to say:

I hope you're up for playing along, as I am officially tagging you:

Post THE RULES on your blog ( this be them! )
Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog
Tag 7 people and link to them
Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.

If this doesn't appeal to you, then no harm done!

I think a quilt of Welsh dragons (Y Ddraig Goch) would look fabulous, but it must be red

I agree - go for the hare!
Have you ever come across a magazine called "Cloth, Paper, Scissors"? If not, then do try and get hold of a copy because I think you'd like it. You can certainly get it from Rainbow Silks. Its American and as a result a bit pricey but can be worth it. Lots of ATC etc.
