Wow, I'm actually an author! Last Wednesday I got a review copy of my book Word Play Quilts in the mail. Wheeee! The book doesn't actually come out until December, but they have copies made up to send to magazines and I got one too.
I was worried (because that's what I do - I worry) that some of my quilts weren't going to show up well, but the photography is great. So happy with it. And look, the book is in the Martingale catalog:
Do you recognize the quilts on the bottom left and center? I didn't make them, QuiltDiva Julie did. So fantastic!
I'm in Houston right now. This was my first time attending Quilt Market - I only came for two days of it and I'm already exhausted. I got to meet several of the lovely folks from Martingale that I've exchanged emails with and talked to on the phone - so great to finally have faces to attach to names.
Plus I've gotten to meet some delightful folks who read the blog - wonderful to talk to you! If you do happen to stumble across me, say hello, please.
For those of you attending Quilt Festival, I'll be at The Quilt Show booth doing a meet and greet on Thursday at 11am. I think. Definitely Thursday. Please come by and chat with me.
I wanted to write more in this blog post, but I am beat and I have another long day tomorrow, but that will be holiday time visiting with my cousin.
Before I go though, here are pics of Lily in my suitcase:
