A quick update

Hi, Just popped out of my self-enforced retirement to say I am not in the September edition of Period Living after all, I shall be in October's, but if you want a laugh go to page 90 of September's Prima magazine and read an article about me and my mad collecting habit. Unfortunately the magazine omitted to mention my website so I look like a crazy lady who just collects loads of fabric for no reason, hahahaha!

Right I'm back off into the garden to soak up some more sun, toodle pip xxx

Donna, good to see you resurface, albeit briefly - am thinking of you, and wishing you well. Hoping things pan out in the future. :)

take care -

Lovely photo! But they must have got your age wrong, I could swear you are only 29!

How exciting!
Yes, my fabric room can make me appear rather "ecentric" to visitors if they don't know about the selling factor. LOL

Always enjoy browsing through your lovely fabrics!

I thought you were crazy? I know I am!

Gina said...

Aren't you the most beautiful girl! What a photo! So nice to see you in print.

Molly said...

I got really excited looking at the articles and your house. It really does look so beautiful that it made me well up. Especially when I look at the spaghetti bolognese that is trodden into the carpet at this moment! You really are brilliant. How do you do it with a little 'un around? I salute you Dons. Your things are so beautiful. I'm in awe. So cool.

I shall certainly be buying Octobers issue of Period living! and no doubt I shall snip out the article and pop into my inspirations box.

I can't believe that Prima left out your lovely website, what were they thinking?

I hope that you and the wee ones are enjoying the sunshine, do come back again soon

Hi Sweetie

You didn't tell me you'd resurfaced - if only briefly - it's lovely to see you here again and to see your gorgeous face smiling out of the page :o}

I send you big hugs xxxx


Jane said...

Donna - It is a good job that I've seen the details of your website popping up all over the place to make up for Prima - how frustrating - for readers as much as for you,

Hi Donna,
It still looks like a great article and you look like a model!

Look forward to the Period Living magazine, as I seem to keep missing you in all of your publications!....was that a mention in 'Country Living' this month?

Nearly bumped into you in Ashburton, but we were unable to hang around any longer that afternoon.....Love Ros's shop!

Have a great weekend,
Niki xx

Hi Donna -hope you're enjoying your summer. You look fab in that photo, looking forward to seeing more in Period Living!

ramblingwoman said...

Hi Dons! Well, you ARE a crazy lady aren't you? Hee hee..

I didn't realise your passion was actually so young (only seven years?)I assumed it was a lifelong thing ....or was it just lying dormant?

Hope all is OK with you. Lots of love. xxxxx

Thank you thank you, to show your article to friends to prove that whilst they think I might be odd in my fabric addiction I am not alone. Suzie Sews
