It's the "Little" Things




So the mister and I went to dinner last night and stopped in Barnes and Noble to have a peek at quilt magazines.  Well not just any quilt magazines but a specific one, The Quilter.  Why?


I guess most people would be more excited over having a project published in a magazine but an advertisement sure floated my boat.  Suitable for framing.  Giggle.  Oh and the magazine is also filled not only with great ads :o) but really fun projects too.

 (Fairlane before quilting--the wagon is from my childhood)
The quilt featured in the ad is Fairlane.  It's one I made specifically for Dad, who will be 95 on July 1.  Shhh....Guess what his birthday gift is?  I'll be hand delivering it.  He doesn't read my blog.  But for now I'm sending Mom and Dad the magazine with the ad.

Oh, and if it was me, I wouldn't consider it a little thing :-) I'd be bouncing off the walls :-)

Very exciting - not just a little thing. I'm surprised you waited until after dinner to see the magazine :) it's a great quilt and I'm sure your father will love it. Including the delivery by you in person. The black is unusual but really, really striking. It looks so wonderful warm.

You're riding the crest of a wave and everything is good!
Fantastic to see your lovely quilt in the magazine.
You will get a kick out of seeing many quilts made from your pattern popping up in Blogland.
