Janie's Friday FeaturE
Welcome to this week's Friday Feature Newsletter - the Janie Crow equivalent of a Sunday supplement magazine....
I hope this email finds you well. There has been a flurry of new sign ups to the mailing list this week, so I would like to extend a warm welcome to all those of you who have not been here before. I hope you will enjoy this week's newsletter and that you will join me here again over the forthcoming weeks and months.
It has, as always been another busy week here at Janie Crow. I am continuing to add new items to the web site in a rather slow and methodical way! This week sees the addition of the Sunshine and Showers PDF patterns, which I mention in more detail further down this email and I have also added a stockist list.
We have been having really slow internet connection here this week, so I have been crocheting alternative colour way motifs for the Delft competition while I patiently (!) wait for pages to load on the web site as I build them. There will be more news on the competition finalists soon and I will be sending out emails to inform the 5 finalists that they have been shortlisted early next week - so if you have sent in an entry, make sure you check your in box!
This week's newsletter focusses on the humble cushion! I love cushions, maybe not quite as much as I love blankets, but they are still one of my favourite things within the house. I love the decorative effect they have and of course the fact that they envoke comfort, but I also really like designing them as they are small and neat and can have lots of design elements squeezed into them. I have a new cushion design coming very soon, hopefully in time for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival. As soon as it is ready I will let you know.
It is a pretty dull and dismal afternoon here in North London, despite a promising bright start this morning. If it is similar weather where you are, then it might just be the perfect time to settle down with a cuppa and a cheeky biscuit, while you read this week's newsletter. Why not make yourself extra comfy and grab a cushion or two?
