To keep me posting, I offer you an opportunity

I was wondering how to get me sparking at the frame in September. After an admittedly tiring summer (ok, I'm not super human ) I really want to do something fun.
I saw a documentary on the making of the September Vogue magazine.
 In my hey day as a designer that was one tome not to be missed, it was so big and chock full of crazy I needed a crane and a bottle of tylenol to get it home and read.
As I became more of a hooker than a clothing maker I found myself looking to see how often wool was used !
I often make a geometric in September.
How interesting would it be to create an inspired rug from the pages of Vogue's September issue ?
Each day I'll draw and colour something informed by a page in Vogue and I'll post it here. I'll do this for the 30 days of September. You can join me by using these patterns I post in any way you wish ! I will be  hooking a rug of them. You can too ! I'll be using 7 colours representing the 7 deadly sins, tongue in cheek of course...
Vogueing anyone ?
 Of course you might want to create a rug from the pages of Vogue yourself ... please join us that way, it will be delightful anyway you try it on!

  1. That is an interesting idea, Wanda. My daughter gets the teen Vogue, and ten Bazaar. I should look through her magazines and see if I can be inspired to try something...

    Thanks for the idea,
