That's right -- that's this little ol' blog of mine featured in Quiltmaker magazine right above Rachel's blog (oh, hey girl!) I'm so happy and so humbled at the same time. Of course, as soon as I was tipped off about this, I ran right out to Borders to get my own copy -- and one for my mom, too!
You know, when you make the decision to start something like a blog, it's with the understanding that -- to a certain degree -- you'll be exposing yourself completely to the world. It's a bit scary to embrace that kind of vulnerability.
When I decided to start this blog and share not only the things that I make with my hands and from my heart, but some of the more personal details about my life and family, I never imagined how rewarding it would be to have anyone -- much less total strangers -- notice and even appreciate my creations and my passions.
So all of that is just a very long way of saying "thank you" both to the team at Quiltmaker magazine and to all of you for reading my humble blog. You bring new joy to my life every day. I hope each & every one of you is having a happy, healthy, and peaceful holiday season.
