Oh my goodness. I'm pingin' off the walls! I submitted a Circle Purse design, which you have seen on the blog sometime a while back, to Quilter's World Magazine. I made a few adjustments and changes to the original clutch design and now that beautiful little bag is IN Quilter's World, October 2010- for the first-ever In The Bag feature for the magazine. I bought my copy at the local quilt shop already, but I think its officially on the shelves Sept 1st.
I mentioned it during the birthday give-away, since I knew it'd be in the October issue- but its never really REAL until the paper is in your hands. Oh man, paper copy of Quilter's World!
Now here's a bit that was a total surprise to me, though- ReannaLily Designs blog was mentioned in the Editor's Web Connections "what I'm reading" section! Super exciting. I'm listed right above True-Up. TRUE-UP PEOPLE!
I should get a web cam picture of myself, so I can tell the E.R. this is what I looked like right before I exploded. =)
You'll have to go pick up a copy and make your own purse, recycling a vinyl record and possibly an orphan block or strip-pieced block (pictured). The article for the purse has plenty of diagrams and has the purse photographed from a couple different angles, so you know you're on-track while you are stitching.
Goodness. I think I should go out for cake to celebrate!
