My Happy News

I don't know if its a HUGE deal, or a BIG deal, or a normal deal, but I am very excited to tell you that I will be the featured designer in the upcoming issue of The Gift of Stitching magazine. Doesn't feel very normal to me!
I was so taken aback and honored when the editor asked if I would consider doing the interview. Would I? As if saying no to such an opportunity was an option!

I can't show you any pictures of the design that will be released along with my interview, but if you are reading my blog, the chances are high that you love to stitch, and that you like my designs, and that means you are going to love what I have submitted to the magazine. I hinted at my big news back in this post, and also gave a glimpse of the design in progress. Which one is it? You'll have to wait and see!

It is a digital-subscription magazine which I had only heard about but never read until recently. And I have to say that it is chock-full of great articles and charts and interesting tidbits about new items available to stitchers. Most definitely worth the $20 subscription, in my opinion. So, if you are yet to jump on board, now is a good time. The new issue will be available on March 1st.
