Ok - so I've been harbouring a little secret from you. It's really only a little secret, so I hope you'll be ok about it. Remember I mentioned a few weeks ago that I'd been asked to submit a design for a UK magazine..... Well.... my design was selected! I'm delighted and it has given me a real boost, as you can imagine!
He's called Arthur the Alien and if you'd like to meet him, here he is ....
He's appearing in the current edition of Let's Get Crafting which I believe is out today. The good news for all non Let's Get Crafting readers both in the UK and overseas is that I retain the design rights to this pattern which means I'll be making the pattern available for general sale in the next week.
Arthur's a very lovable little fellow and great for using up part balls of wool you have lurking at the bottom of your stash. You can choose to have him posed sitting down or standing up.....
I quite like my creatures to sit down but it's really up to you!
He's passed the Ollie test too. He spent days cuddling him before I packed him off to the magazine's editor and repeatedly has asked "Mummy :: make me a alien :: purrleeeese....".
Hopefully the original Arthur will be back from the mag soon so I don't have to!!!
If you'd like to be added to my mailing list for confirmation of his pattern release please add a comment below and I'll add you to it.
I've got some more news on the pattern front which I hope to tell you about soon :: so watch this space!
