Inspirations #104 Out Now!
18th October 2019
The new issue of Inspirations Magazine is officially out now and to all our readers we want to wish you Season’s Greetings!
Now while it’s true that Christmas is only 10 weeks away and as it’s our Christmas edition, issue #104 is full of delights befitting the festive season, there is actually more meaning to our theme ‘Season’s Greetings’ than just Christmas.
To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose.— Ecclesiastes 3:1
As Inspirations Editor-in-Chief Susan O’Connor eloquently shares in her welcome, a season’s greeting can apply to any number of life events or moments in time and in this way issue #104 goes well beyond Christmas.
Inside you can celebrate the seasons of nature with a gently shaded threadpainted mountain flower by Catherine Laurençon, a vibrant kingfisher in silk embroidery by Helen M Stevens and an enchanting stumpwork scene of mushrooms and berries by Kay Dennis.
Ana Mallah welcomes in autumn and all its majestic colours with a beautiful hooped embroidery featuring stunning autumn leaves, while the Art Noveau movement is celebrated with an ornate carnation in elegant stumpwork by Fiona Hibbett.
For those looking for a new stitch to learn, Paisley by Susan Davis is a wonderful introductory design to the fascinating goldwork technique, or nué. Then there are the Christmas projects themselves with an ornamental candle in gleaming goldwork by Penny Wolswinkel and a delightful counted thread etui with festive motifs by Betsy Morgan.
So, no matter what season of life you are currently greeting, Inspirations issue #104 will help you celebrate using your needle and thread. Single copies now available to purchase online.
