My Designs Featured in Quilting Arts Gift Issue!


Yippie!!!! 
Woohoo!!!!
Hooray!!!! 
I can't find one word to describe my excitement

I have been keeping this announcement a secret for such a long time!!! My embroidered cuffs are going to be featured in the special Gift issue of Quilting Arts magazine. I have subscribed to this magazine since it first launched. When this magazine and Cloth Paper Scissors arrives I stop what I'm doing and devour every single page. I am so excited and honored to be chosen to be a part of this issue --it's a dream come true...and hopefully just the beginning.

When my cuffs were chosen I was so excited I asked if I could announce it on my blog...but I was told, "no, wait just a little longer." I'm sure the editors are very use to this question and know how hard it is to wait. I sent my cuffs in and looked at my email everyday thereafter to see if there was an email that said, GO! I got an email that they were getting ready to be photographed, then I got an email that my cuffs were returning to me, then I finally got an email that said I could make the announcement. They must have known how close I was to bursting... Now, I'm on pins and needles waiting to see my cuffs professionally photographed (finally) in a beautiful setting for the holidays.

I also have to thank many of you for your encouragement and wonderful comments regarding my cuffs. And, to those of you who have purchased one --thank you. You may see your cuff (not the exact same one) in the magazine. I will be developing a website soon and will let you know when it is up and running. I hope to do some other exciting things there, that I can't achieve on this blog.

This Gift issue will be on newsstands on September 16, or you can pre-order and received 10% off on the Quilting Arts website. If you currently do not subscribe to this magazine, you should consider it if you enjoy high quality fiber and paper magazines.


...I'll leave it a surprise as to which cuffs are featured...
