"I wrote a book!"
it's such an honor to be selected to write a book
to have the support of everyone at a publishing company
and to have the support from all of you
A Modern Twist
but I have to share with you...
the funniest thing happened...
February 10 came and went without any real fanfare at all

no champagne
no party

just a quiet evening at home
working on a Spring Market quilt
for Windham Fabrics
and a little knitting
while listening to the dog snore
they designed postcards, and when I attended Road to California
everyone received a card
as I sheepishly said,
"I wrote a BOOK!!"
contributed great information on quilting
and quilted all of the quilts in the book just beautifully

we'll be hosting a BookBlogHop beginning March 1
and there will be some great participating designers
so please check back soon!

I am a proud sponsor and a vendor at
and will be signging books in the booth
Booth 523
by the way

 but really.
in the long run, everything is still the same, here
no balloons
no parades
just fabric.
and quilts.
and you.
thank you
to all of you
thank you

First of all, CONGRATS! I love your new site in that you kept your cool logo/header at the top, and I love that you have Customer Service right at the top. It goes without saying that I love all the fabric choices, too!

Some celebrations don't need champagne. They just need an opportunity for all of your fans to say "You rock!" Completing a book is a MAJOR feat. Congratulations! And, by the way, I like the way your patterns are displayed on the wholesale page.
