At long last...

Three boxes of these arrived yesterday. I thought I would cry tears of joy, I thought I would do a happy dance, I thought it would be so amazing...but I wasn't here. My husband texted me and told me the boxes arrived and should he wait, or did I want him to open them? I was teaching a quilting workshop all day at a nearby guild, so he opened them, and then he delivered them! So my friends at the Big Canoe Quilt Guild were the very first folks to see and purchase my books in person! It was pretty awesome when they arrived. I'll admit my hand was shaking a bit at first. But I was in a room full of people so I kind of had hold it together.

Here's the page that actually proves I wrote the book. LOL
If you want a copy, I'll be here:

Bulloch Hall Author Reception
Sunday March 6, from 5-7 pm
Come see all the quilts in the show and from the book.
Wine and cheese reception with live music.

I hope to see you there!

  9. Congrats on this gorgeous book. How I wished I could come and buy a copy and let you sign it for me!!! I will certainly look for it next time we're in the US, although that will have to wait for another year or so...
    It looks lovely and I'm saving up scraps since I've been quilting to make a scrappy quilt, but never had the right inspiration. Your book will provide that, I'm sure of it. Again, congrats and I hope it will get lots and lots of re-prints, because it sells so well. xxxx and a Dutch Hug from me.

  10. Hurray!!! Just looked at my Dutch online bookstore, and I will be able to order my own copy in April!!! So I will!!! I will promote it in the Netherlands for you.

      Look, your book in a Dutch store!!!
