Pinch Me, I'm Published!!

I've been working on a few secret sewing projects and I can finally reveal the first one.  I've been busting at the seams to talk about this and I can finally share it with you.  OK  on with my news.
American Patchwork and Quilting has picked up my first magazine submission!

My first publication and I'm SO excited.  This might sound like an Oscar speech, but thanks have to be given out first and foremost to Carol, the owner of my LQS, Fabric Etc.  This has happened because of her.  She encouraged me to submit this piece and with her nudging, I did and here it is.  Second thanks have to go to my guy TL.  Without his support and love, I doubt this would have happened. I'm so blessed to have so many fabulous, amazing, supportive and loving people in my life.  I truly am blessed. 

So go check out the magazine, the cover looks like this.  It should be in your mailbox very soon, if not already.  It will be on the newsstands April 7th.

I know I've been quiet lately, and for those who know me in person know this is out of character. I've just flat out been busy.  My longarm customer list has grown and the repeat business has been so amazing, so THANK YOU for that.
Then stay tuned for a fun give away.
