My 15 Minutes of Fame

A couple blogging buddies sent me emails this morning with some wonderful news!  My blog is featured in Quilter's Home Magazine as one of the 55 Best Quilting Blogs!  Now we all know that I'm not the greatest quilter in the world, nor is it the only thing I do, but just to see my blog's name in print gave me a huge rush.



All I can say is WOW!  What a great thing to wake up to in the morning!!  Now, I better get off this computer and get my shower and pick up my own copy (or two or three) of the magazine.  I'm just so tickled.  Listed right above me, is a quilting buddy, Wendy.  If you haven't visited her blog, please do.  It's filled with quilty goodness!


(copied from Wendy's site since I don't have the magazine)

Here's the link to the entire article if you don't get the magazine.  But grab a cup of coffee (or tea), you'll find some great blogs listed:  PDF

Back soon with stitching, and yes, some quilting updates.  After I run to the store for my copies of the magazine!!
