Make and Craft Magazine

I'm sorry but I am bursting with excitement!  There is a write-up about Chester and I in the second issue of Make and Craft Magazine.  It's my first time ever in a magazine and I am over the moon.


If you'd like to read the posts referred to in the write up

Chester goes Topless

Hello Chester

Chester and Taffy help with the hedge trimming

.... just click on these links and they should take you straight to them.  Feel free to leave a comment if you would like to, I'll post a reply as soon as I can.

You can see how Chester was made by clicking on the tab 'Chester the Extreme Crochet Cat' at the top of the page and to see pictures of Chester click on 'Chester's Gallery'.  There is also a tab marked 'workshops' where you can find out what workshops are coming up soon.

Finally, I would just like to thank Katharine of Make and Craft for creating such a fantastic magazine.

While I'm at it, I'd also like to thank Wendy over at Handmade Harbour for hosting Handmade Monday.  She has been very busy recently but still manages to keep up with us all.

Have a good week and I'll see you over there!
