My Exciting News!

I have been such a slacker the past week!  Not one stitch, not one piece of fabric cut. There aren't any in progress or finished projects to share.

I'm in neutral.  It isn't because I haven't any ideas or my creative flow has dried up.  Its a pleasant time.  Calm.  

Except for my exciting news!!!  I am so thrilled, giddy and maybe a little irritating to some... but I'm in my very first ever quilting magazine!  Yes, really!  I didn't want to say anything just in case they decided they didn't want to use my pattern after all.  Just to be safe and not have egg on my face! 

It has been something I have dreamt about.  Wished.  I don't really know how to go about it.  This magazine found me.  I haven't any idea how.  A very lovely lady, Deb Orhn contacted me through my Etsy shop.  She was interested in patterns for two of my pillow covers for a new magazine:  FRESH QUILTS ~ modern sewing for fun.  It's new, fresh, and looks fantastic!  Oh, and it's out in a shop near you!




How about that!  But wait...if you look closely, my pillows are on the front cover!




I didn't expect that!


These are the pillows that are featured!


Needless to say, I'm a pretty happy camper!  Excited, honored and thrilled.  The magazine is fantastic and has some really great projects in it.  

Thank you Fresh Quilts!

I decided to celebrate, I would put together a 'FRESH' giveaway next week!  Yep!  It will include a copy of Fresh Quilts Magazine!

I hope you get a chance to stop by.
