I feel like I have unearthed a four leaf clover from our white ground cover! So many happy things have come my way.
First, I discovered my Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt was in issue #129 of Quiltmania. You may recall Doreen (Aunt Reen’s Place) curated a fabulous exhibition of these quilts at Houston last Fall. Quiltmania chose to publish two, mine and Karen Beigh’s (Log Cabin Quilts) wonderful chocolate background beauty. This is the third time I have had a quilt in this magazine. I think I need to go to France!
On Sunday I had a rare day alone in my sewing room! I began preparations for the string-a-long with Lori (Humble Quilts) and was able to complete 4 little hexie flowers for my sew-a-long with Bea and Cecile. Super day!
Then I found out last night that I was a winner (through Heather’s, Peachy Pages blog) in Diane Knott’s (Butterfly Threads) blog hop give away for her new book, “Strip Quilt Secrets”. I love Diane’s quilts and her blog. I’m sure I will gleen some helpful hints for Lori’s string quilt-a-long. Thanks Diane!
And as if that wasn’t enough, we had a wonderful 1 year birthday dinner party with this little man. My daughter made a delicious cake (his first taste of sugar!) which he devoured with glee. I simply cannot believe an entire year has flown by.
I am blessed!
