Today begins the Quilting Gallery Blog Hop. What fun! If you visit my blog between March 8th and March 14th, leave me a comment on the day's blog (yes, I am going to blog every day during this time, seriously) and you will be entered in a drawing to win a copy of my first book, ORPHAN BLOCK QUILTS: MAKING A HOME FOR ANTIQUE, VINTAGE, COLLECTIBLE, AND LEFTOVER QUILT BLOCKS.
I am going to put all of the participants' names into a hat on March 15th and will pull out the winner. If there are a lot of participants, I might just give away a second book! Or maybe some magazines as I have stacks and stacks of magazines featuring my quilts now. WAHOO! Let the fun begin!
This week I've been feeling decidedly happy. Or perhaps it's giddy relief? I think it has something to do with getting all of my new book project stuff off to my editor, Kent, including the quilts themselves. Also, I think I've got a touch of spring fever too.
At first I thought I'd feel like something was missing once I sent everything, but actually I'm feeling the opposite. I feel like I've found something. Maybe my mind?? Or perhaps my sanity???? Or maybe it could have something to do with actually being able to sew again. Before I sent in all my book stuff, I was chained to my computer and didn't see my sewing machine for weeks and weeks. Sigh.... But now I'm back in the studio working on four quilts and one bag for magazines, and three memory quilts for a neighbor. Oh, I have a couple class samples going right now too. I am SEW HAPPY to be quilting once again.
