MY BIG NEWS

Have you heard the song - "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves? Well that's what I'm doing right now, and probably will be for a while.

I WROTE A BOOK!
Creative Paper Quilts: Applique, Embellishment, Patchwork, Piecework

I just found it on Amazon. And at Lark. And at Sterling.

It looks like it is going to be out in paperback. They aren't showing a cover yet. Can't wait to see that!

Oh my gosh. My heart is beating 10,000 miles a minute. I've been waiting for the day I'd see it at these websites. The whole project just didn't seem quite real to me, but now it does.

I've been working on the book since October and it's been so hard to keep it all a secret.

The book is about paper quilting and there are lots of projects. There is a beautiful variety of projects that were contributed by some fabulous artists. The contributing artists include: Sue Bleiweiss, Zana Clark, Cathy Collier, Carol White, and Colleen Kong-Savage.

I don't think I'll sleep a wink tonight.
