Ta da!!!

The word is out! Gloria Hansen got the C&T spring catalog and announced it on Quilt Art - saving me the trouble of doing it myself! Thanks, Gloria.

So, cat is out of bag. Coming in June 2008 - packed with information on everything I've covered in workshops - AND MORE! If you've taken a workshop with me, it will give you even more ways to print great art cloth. If you haven't - this will be almost as good (although not as much fun, I admit - LOL).

To reserve your autographed copy hot off the press, click here.

It's been a year in which I couldn't blog about most of what I was doing (as Dale Anne said - HOLY CRAP!! No wonder you have been so quiet on your blog lately.) Thanks, Dale Ann, I fell over laughing at that one! Too true. But the results are finally on their way to fruition. Yay!

There's a lot more to come - I'm getting into teaching season, the kitchen will be demolished in January, I hope, and I am preparing for a TV appearance on Quilting Arts new exciting series for PBS. Maybe I can squeeze in some studio time?

I screamed when I saw the posting! I'm so happy for you. What a great day. No more galley proofs or fights about "revisions". The cover looks beautiful. I can't wait to get my copy so I can see the inside.

And now, on top of everything else, you're going to be a TV star. What are we going to do with you?

Can't wait to receive my copy. June seems a long time to wait, but wait I will!

Just after I've recommitted to no more book buying...well, if I have to backslide, and I will, at least its a book from a really groovy woman!

Congratulations!

I'm so happy to be part of your exciting secret. I'm sure it will be worth all the hard work!

Congratulations! Yipee! I have been hoping you would write a book for so long. You inspire me via your blog to try new things and stretch. Thank you so much.
