Exciting News

I have some exciting news.  I'm so giddy I can barely get my fingers to work to let you know.  I knew back in May that McCalls wanted this quilt for their magazine but imagine my surprise when my friend Cheryl facebooked me congrats that my quilt was on the cover of McCalls along with this link.  I could hardly believe it.  And the truly great thing is that it's coming out just in perfect time for my sister, Julie's, fabric line Circa 1934.  That will be in stores soon. 
You can go here to learn more and to order a kit for the quilt full of Julie's fabulous retro fabric, full of fun dots, cool type keys, fancy medallions, awesome numbers, and a really neat element print full of nostalgic 30's goodness. 
Thanks for letting me share my good news.  So what's good in your life?  Would love to hear about what is making you do a happy dance.

    Question: I seem to remember you posting about an outdoor quilt show you attended last summer. Has it happened again this year? Or is it still coming up? I'd love to go if you would let me know about it....
