I have some super exciting news to share...
Yep, this happened! I'm in Quilty Magazine! Not once, but twice! Eek! I submitted two quilt designs around Christmastime last year (yes, it takes that long) and received my copy of the magazine in the mail last week! I actually picked up the mail from the post office in our old city and noticed the unusual package from an unknown sender. So at a stop light, I opened it up and let out a huge squeal! The girls started squealing, too, and then the light turned green and we were on the freeway for 20 minutes. That was the longest 20 minutes, ever! Please be sure to pick up a copy of the magazine next time you are at JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, or Barnes and Noble (just to name a few)! They should start hitting the newsstands any day now!
And to celebrate my first publication and the relishes back at school, I want to giveaway a copy of the magazine to one of my awesome readers! All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what your favorite quilting magazine is (and no, it doesn't have to be Quilty;). For a second entry, like me on Instagram. I've been sharing lots of my behind-the-scene pictures on IG lately and would love to have you visit me there as well. I treasure blogging and the connections I make through my stories and pictures with you guys, but sometimes the pictures of my everyday sewing life, like little relish sticking 20 sewing pins in my Juki, are worth an instant share. If you decide to follow me there or already do, leave me a comment for a second entry.
I'll pick a winner Friday!!
