I'm Included!


Holly at Hollyblogs has written an article for McCalls Quilting Magazine about her favorite blogs! Lucy and I are both included in her list, and wow,there are lots of impressive blogs listed!

I am really honored and thrilled to be included (see me here doing my own impression of Sally Field's award nomination where she was so shocked she babbled "you like me! You really like me!!"

It is wonderful, and so much fun. Thank you Holly!

The magazine is the February issue, but should be out shortly.

I also got an email from Brenda Groelz, the editor of Quiltmaker Magazine. My quilt has been shipped back to me and she writes:
Wanted to let you know that I just got my preview copy of the JanFeb 08 issue of Quiltmaker with your Blue Ridge Beauty quilt in it and it looks wonderful! I think you’re going to like how your leaders and enders articles looks too. Our art director did a wonderful illustration.

I can't wait to see how it looks in the magazine! Exciting times in Quiltville, and yes....all this while the holidays loom over us and so does a MOVE!! Insane, I tell you! Insane!

My mother always said "all things happen for the best" I hated when she said that, probably because she was always right.
Hang in there, good things will happen after the insanity passes.

Oh WOW Bonnie, this news is fantastic!!! Many of us have followed your blog for quite some time now.....but just think after the magazine comes out there will be thousands of brand new Bonnie Hunter fans... and to think we can say, "we knew you when..." :)

Again, Congratulations! I can't wait until the magazine comes out... I will be checking the magazine rack each week in December when I go grocery shopping! :)

Love from Texas ~Bonnie

I hope I can pick the magazine when I am back in the states in December! I was only gone a week and it took me forever to catch up on your blog! So: congratulations on the nomination and the article; so glad you liked Charleston, the guild there is really nice; sorry about your son's accident - my SS totaled 4 cars before joining the airforce (not as a pilot I may add); my sympathy about the move but you will like Salem! (did I cover it all?!)

Congrats on both the magazine articles!!! I will have to get them both and be able to say "I read that blog!".

Also -- belated congrats on your move. I know it's a bit hectic and frantic -- but think of the opportunity for a whole new quilt studio :0).
