I'm so excited

Just before christmas, the editor of Down Under Quilts magazine e-mailed me and said she had seen a picture of one of my quilts and wanted to know if she could publish it in the magazine in a feature on basket quilts, well after I Picked myself up off the floor and sat back in the chair and thought about it for a whole 2 seconds I e-mailed back and said that would be great. Well today the issue arrvied and there it is on page 14 along side another beautiful basket quilt.

I was so excited to see MY quilt in print. Never in a million years did I think my quilts were good enough for a magazine. it just goes to show you can do anything if you set your mind to it.
Now its time to get off cloud 9 and start cooking dinner.
