March Motivation

Decided I should find another challenge for the month of March. I've been following with keen interest the making of a magazine over at Restyled Home and Flea Market Style although I haven't got my hands on a copy yet! It got me thinking however, about my magazine love over the years.  I went to the basement where there are stacks of old favorites, some of which are no longer published. Some of my favorites over the years have been Victoria (the old one), Country Living and Craft Illustrated. My mom shared the magazine love and often sent me letters with clippings of things she thought I'd like and I saved her all of the great quilt designs and hooked mats I could find. My big sis who shares the gardening bug always has a stash of glorious gardening magazines and has gifted me a subscription or two over the years. These are safely tucked away too. So, my mission for the month of March is to make something inspired by one of these copies from the archives at least once a week. 

Here's the first project. Yes, more felt. Isn't this a gorgeous cover photo from the August 2001 issue of Victoria. Aren't these pansies so simple and beautiful.  There is more inspiration inside this issue but I'll pick another magazine for the next project.

I agree, that you picked a gorgeous photo to be inspired by. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it. I have been admiring your basket photos for a while and have just discovered your felt flowers which are equally wonderful. You are just plain talented!
