Every Dog Has His Day


I'm having my day today! It's finally out, the book! THE BOOK I HAVE QUILT IN!!

This is my quilt, Cinnamon Toast. IN A BOOK. I HAVE A QUILT IN A BOOK PEOPLE!!!!

Ok, I'll get a grip on myself but still. I have a quilt in a book! I can hardly believe it. I have had such a great year. First I was in Alex's Machine Quilting Book,(I pieced a quilt for a step-out) then I was in Elizabeth's ABC's Of Words On Quilts (I did some machine quilting ) and now this. Neutral Essentials is Alex's latest book on working with neutral colors and I'M IN IT!!

Like others, my opportunities come from having good friends that offered me chances to participate in their own success and for that I am grateful. Sewing and quilting has brought me wonderful fulfilling opportunities that I would never have expected when I graduated from college with my BS in Business Administration in hand a shocking 31 years ago.

So I think you all know what this means!!! A BOOK GIVEAWAY! Leave a comment on this post and I'll pick a name at random on Friday!

Now, back to my regular non-braggy self.

PKM. Your post has been here all this while & I'm just now reading it!! I remember when you were buying those fabrics for that quilt. I'm so happy for you as you know. You are talented enough to have a book all your own. Waiting patiently for my autographed copy. Alex couldn't be luckier than to have YOU help her out.
