Where to start? It's been a month since my last post and that was only my photo a day recap. Sooooo much has happened it's hard to summarize it all up, but I'll try.
I think we'll start with Lisa's visit. For those of you that follow on facebook, you already know that Lisa (McLisa) and I are very good friends in the facebook world. We are actually the best of friends (in real life) and talk/text almost daily. Anyway, it just happened that Lisa was teaching in Atlanta and then had just under a week before she was teaching in Lakeland so she snuck in a little super mini vacation here at my house! No, it was definitely not enough time! Hopefully another mini vacation (or even a non-mini vacation) is in the near future.
I even managed to get my besties autograph!! This is her two page ad for Gammill Quilting.
There is some seriously awesome talent in that picture -- a great group of peeps!!
Another amazing thing happened while Lisa was here... my brand new Gammill was delivered!
See, I told you it was an extremely eventful few days!
Then... it came time to put a gazillion crystals on Outta the Loop! So Eyvonne and I hot fixed our brains out for over forty hours!
So here it is totally finished -- front and back!
And here's a peek at my label...
Somewhere in all of that was a trip to Quilter's Choice. Vivian made sure I received my copy of Kaye England's new book, Spikes and Peaks. The quilt that Vivian pieced and I quilted was featured in the book -- what fun, even though it doesn't include either of our names!
So then I picked up my April/May issue of Quilters Newsletter Magazine and...
Stella Luminosa was featured with some of the other winners from MQX West 2012! Its dark and kinda blurry... maybe it's a good thing I am a quilter and not a photographer!
And also in that same issue is my first Gammill ad!!!
But wait, it gets better! The UPS lady brought me a wonderful package. Gammill sent me an entire box of American Patchwork and Quilting's June issue! It features my two page ad -- and it is amazingly beautiful!!!
I think that just about catches you up on everything... I think! More soon, I promise!
