Exciting news!

Back in November, Yvette Streeter, Editor of Handmade magazine, emailed me asking if she could put a little feature of my Half-Hexie Glamping quilt and I said absolutely (duh!). Well, the magazine is finally out in the UK (released here at the end of the month) and got my copy in the mail Monday. When I saw the page my quilt is on, I was excited to see Kelly from My Quilt Infactuation's chevron quilt next to it (I emailed her immediately...haha). Soooooo, if you are in the UK, please grab yourself a copy...I know you will be delighted! If you see it here in the US, let me know, because I have yet to find a newsstand/store that carries it, but only checked Barnes and Noble and JoAnns.

And some more exciting news....we found a new house! It's actually a new build, so we have a little more time to sell. I am trying to get the house decluttered and ready to go on the market by the end of the month. Man, this is just as bad as packing everything! I am feeling good about donating all of our junk, though.
With all that said, it might be a tad bit quiet here. I think once the hustle of getting the house ready is over I should have a bit of down time to sew and share. Wish me luck!!
