Exciting news!!


As promised a few posts ago (very last line of the post), I have some exciting quilt-related news! I have a little article published in the latest copy of the online magazine, Cotton Spice. It's an awesome magazine, and best of all, it's FREE! You just go here and simply register, and you have access to this latest copy of the magazine, just freshly out today, plus all of the back issues, and a ton of more fun quilt-related things. It used to be a paid subscription magazine and you would receive a copy on a CD in the mail, but now it's totally free!

And this isn't just a boring online newsletter type of format, this looks like a real quilt magazine. It has quilt related articles, free patterns, stories, and all sorts of fun stuff. So I strongly suggest that you register (easy peasy!) and you can see both the magazine, and my article! And no I'm not being paid to tell you this, I just really really love it!
Here I am telling you all about the mag, and I haven't even told you a single thing about my article!

If you go back here, and here, you will see my posts about making Monogram letters and framing them. Well Karen from Cotton Spice Quilting asked if I would do a little something for her magazine and here we are, and it's a wrap! I had so many people email me and ask me how to make these cute letters when I had them on my blog, and now you can have instructions, plus access to a great magazine. Did I mention it was free? lol!

So you see, I HAVE done a lot of applique lately, I just couldn't show it to you ;) When you see the letters C and J in the article, I made them to go in the room I just painted for my boys - one above each bed. Today I will hang them up and take photos.

Do you think I'm a little excited???

So once you register (as easy as entering your email address and a password) read the magazine and make sure you stop on pages 56-59 and have a little smile and think of me :D

Great job on the article. I subscribed to Cotton Spice, but I'm happy it is free now. I may be making some letters later.
