Holy Smokes!

I just opened yesterday's mail this morning. There was a white envelope from Interweave Press included in the pile. "Hmm", I thought to myself. "What did I order? I can't remember."

Well, I opened the envelope and there was the June/July 2009 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine. Could it be? YES! MY "ROCK ON!" PIECE WAS PUBLISHED and this was an advance copy of the magazine! I screamed so loudly my youngest thought a burglar broke into the house.

This is quite an honor and I'm absolutely thrilled. Here's a picture of my entry, though QA photographed it much better. And check out all the entrants on the Quilting Arts blog. Everyone did amazing work.


WOO HOO!
